I took my girls to Colorado Springs for the day and spent the afternoon at Focus on the family. My girls had a great time exploring and learning about FoF. We had a snack at the soda shop, really good.

My 2 and 5 year olds love this place. The airplane is really cool and they love dancing on the stage. It's a great indoor activity in hot summer weather.

I visited the center at my wife's urging to record a radio show for my Granddaughter. It was free and a true treat to be in a profession recording studio. The show turned out great and she loves the story!

My children 6, 13, and 17 enjoyed the fun center, they loved the 3 story slide and the dress up and perform in stage. We were not able to visit their bookstore but will do the next time we come back. Staff at the center are also very friendly and accomodating!
