Our Vacation: A Visit to the Cabbage Patch!

Our last day of our Georgia/Florida vacation was filled with a trip to the one and only Cabbage Patch - BabyLand General Hospital! (along with a stop at the outlets to do some shopping!)

It was really cute (if you ask me, Eric, or any man, might have a different opinion of the place!), Cabbage Patch Kids galore! It was a self-guided tour through the "hospital" and the first stop was the nursery.

Our little Darby doo fit RIGHT in. If you ask me, it's hard to tell her from the Cabbage Patch Kids!

She made some friends ...

Visited the preemie babies in the NICU ...

... and made a quick stop by to see the babies freshly born from the cabbage!

While we were shopping around the gift shop, an announcement was made "Mother cabbage in labor. Please proceed to the giving tree if you would like to experience a live birth." It was an experience, to say the least! Before the "birth" the nurse preformed an ultrasound on the "Mother cabbage" to find out if it was a girl or boy. The ultrasound screen turned pink - thus it was a girl.

Then she gave "Mother cabbage" a shot of TLC and the Cabbage Patch Kid was born! Amazing!

If you had one as a child, you know that each Cabbage Patch Kid comes with a unique name and birth certificate. The nurse had 2 children in the crowd name the newly born baby. The first name was chosen by a boy, the middle name by a girl. Without further or do, I give you:

Elizabeth Melinda
After the birth (I mean seriously, we watched a baby being born out of cabbage, how much better could it get??! ha!) we went and picked out a preemie baby for Darby to take home. She loves her little Cabbage Patch baby!

With that, our vacation had come to a sad end. We had such a great time with Emily and Andy, they were fantastic hosts. They have a beautiful home, fun dogs, cook YUMMY dinners and we love them and thank them for making our vacation perfect!

Very neat, I always wanted to visit Babyland General. How big is it? Isn't it in cleveland ga? Do you guys remember the song? JuniorToons has a copy of it. Also there are tons of Cabbage Patch Kids coloring pages, dolls, and DVDs over at if anyone is interested.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if
it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is
entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who has been conducting a little homework on this.
And he actually ordered me lunch because I found it for him.
.. lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thanks for the meal!

Currently it sounds like Drupal is the top blogging platform available right
now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Cheers!

Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of
spam comments? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can
suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Heya! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.

Does building a well-established website such as yours require a massive amount
work? I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary daily. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to
share my personal experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new
aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
