BeWILDerwood

We spent yesterday at BeWILDerwood as a fun family day to celebrate Weston’s birthday. BeWILDerwood is the home of Boggles, Twiggles and Crocklebogs, magical fairy like beings, who live in the forest. They are the characters in a set of children’s books that we weren’t familiar with until yesterday. The forest was full of climbing, swinging, jumping activities, mazes and slides, a boat rides and fun storytelling stages. We had a blast and we were thankful it was cool under the tree canopy after the heat of the previous few days.

Wicken Fen

We spent the afternoon at Wicken Fen, a nature reserve and National Trust property near us. Andrew and I rented bikes and we all road along part of the national bike trail. We had lunch at the cafe and met a few little birdie friends. Then we walked the boardwalk and butterfly trail before circling back to our car.

Go Ape Junior at High Lodge

Today we tried out the Go Ape Junior at High Lodge in the Thetford Forest. It’s a treetop ropes course where you walk along various obstacle paths while safely attached by a harness. The ending is a zip line back down to the ground. Weston has been asking to go on this course for months but we told him we needed to wait until nicer weather (no jackets, hats.) We had a great time. Weston already wants to go again and has said the zip line was his favorite part.

Independence Day Celebration 2016

We spent several hours this evening at the base Independence Day celebration. Weston played a few games, had a donut, and chased bubbles while we waited for fireworks. He said his favorite was the big ones at the end. Andrew and I agree on the ones that look like willow trees.

Hansel and Gretel

Weston and I saw a performance of Hansel and Gretel in the walled garden at Brandon Country Park. It was cute and had an interesting spin on the Hansel and Gretel story with a wicked witch impersonating Hansel and Gretel’s kind stepmother, a professor of science who was terrible at directions, a group of policemen and a handsome prince who all helped save the day. Weston was amused and like the policemen best.

Afterwards, we took a walk/bike ride along one of the paths in the country park.

Dragonfest at West Stow

Weston and I spent today at the Dragonfest at West Stow. We saw performances of¬†Epico the¬†Dragon and Beowulf and the Dragon. We watched birds of prey fly and tried some archery, dug for dinosaur bones, built a dragon’s nest, built a dragon out of Legos, saw a man using a forge, saw a lady using a spinning wheel, and tried on a Viking mask in a Viking ship. And after all that he played for an hour at the playground.
