Time is flying.....

Alexander's 11th birthday this year actually fell on Bank Holiday Monday, so it was a whole weekend of celebrations as on the Saturday Lee and I took him, two of his buds - Ash and Vijay and Nicholas, Cassandra and her friend Isabelle down to Adventure Island for the afternoon...

 The weather was great (albeit a tad cold) and fun was had by all..

On the Sunday, whilst Cassandra spent the morning with one of her bestie's Millie, Lee and I took the boys to see Avengers - Age of Ultron which was just brilliant and one of the best films I've seen for ages...
Then, on the Monday, after opening even more Lego to add to his collection...

 Off we went to spend the day at Castle Heddingham and watch the jousting tournament..
 After a ride on a donkey..
making their own coins..
posing with the gentry at the castle..
having fun with the jesters..
Maypole dancing..

Making friends with the birds, especially "Dusk" the barn owl..

 It was time for the jousting to begin!!!
 A chance meeting with the knights afterwards made for a great photo opportunity!
When we got home, Nannie came round bring more lego and for a cuppa and a slice of birthday cake
All in all, I do believe that our young man had a great birthday.
