Wannado City for Sarah's Birthday

This year we decided to visit Wannado City for Sarah's Birthday. We lucked out and were able to go on a Friday when Chandler and Holly were out of school. It was nice to go on a weekday when it isn't quite so busy. The kids love this place!
The last time we went was 1 1/2 years ago. E,S,C and H have grown up a lot since then. At that time they loved the Publix and we went to it 3 or 4 times. This time they tried it just one or two times. I think the favorites this time were the acting classes, theater, news reporter and crime investigator jobs.

Oh yes! The modeling was a big hit.

For each job the kids earn Wongas. They can use the Wongas to ride rides, pay for the rock climbing wall, make jewelry, cook in the bakery, make a Chocolate bar or deposit them into the bank. The older kids shared their Wongas with Ty and Katie so they could ride the rides.

There was some fighting in the streets. The police need to step up their game.

The Animal Doctor was a new exhibit. The kids enjoyed it. The dog was very life like.

Katie is wishing they would let her in. She would love to help.
We took a break and went to Rainforest Cafe for Lunch. The atmosphere is so much fun.

We ordered the Lava Cake for Sarah. She was surprised and loved it!Wow! 8 years old! I can't believe my little Sarah is that old.

I love, love, love all the pictures of the kids' birthday celebrations. I always have to go into your blog later and show all the kids. The Wannado City looks like a load of fun for Bekie and Karlie's age. Katie is starting to look like Bekie's baby pictures, in our opinion. What do you think? We are looking forward to December with you guys in Midland. -kari
