Babyland General Hospital

On Saturday my mother in law and I took the kids to Babyland General Hospital in Cleveland, Georgia.  Have you ever heard of it?  Well if you haven't it is the hospital where all the Cabbage Patch babies are born and taken care of until they are adopted.  :)  It was such a cute place for the kids to go and see all the different kinds of Cabbage Patch Kids and then of course all are available for adoption.

The visit itself is free and it is a self guided tour so you can take your time looking around and if you are lucky you will get to see the Mother Cabbage give birth to a new cabbage baby.  :)  Yes it is true, the Mother Cabbage will give birth for all to see once she is dilated to 10 leaves.  The doctor comes up and helps Mother by giving her an "easyotimy" and says he has never had to do a C-Section (Cabbage Section).  LOL.
Then the new baby comes into the world and the doctor lets two kids pick the new baby's name.

You can tell the staff puts a lot of effort into the story and making this a really good experience for the kids.  I know that my kids had a really good time and I had a great day with my mother in law.  If you are ever in the area and are looking for something fun and unique to do with your kids I highly recommend this place.
