Living Arrows 10/52

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth

Kahlil Gibran

This weekend we decided to make the most of the break in the rain and headed to Chepstow Castle for another spot of dragon hunting. Yes we do that a lot but it keeps BattleKid entertained and means we get to explore the big number of Welsh Castles around us with a toddler in tow. It gets us out of the house and keeps us all sane.

BattleDad hadn’t visited Chepstow Castle before, and the last time BattleKid and I were there we were confined to the ground floor as he was only about 6 months old, and old castles and buggy’s don’t mix. So this time around it was a special treat for us too.

We explored the castle together, helping a little person climb some towers and down stairways to the cellar too. We even said hello to a Knight on his horse.

We did of course find the Chepstow dragon who was hiding at the far end of this vast castle. BattleKid was very kind and offered the dragon some daisies to eat, but when he refused he tried blowing it like a Jinny Joe (dandelion). He didn’t understand why it didn’t blow away. living arrows

Once we had explored this gem of a castle, we let BattleKid do some roly-polys down the hill just outside the castle entrance and the dirty, mucky trousers were worth the laughs and giggles from our boy. This is my favourite picture that I captured of him from the day.living arrows

    1. It’s definitely worth a visit. There are some sections not suitable for a buggy but you could take Ophelia out for the likes of the cellar if you wanted to. Thanks for the inspiration Kerry. I’d forgotten about it until you mentioned it x

    1. Thanks Ana. As long as we have a happy boy at the end of the day it’s worth it. Read your post about moving and commented. Hope everything settles soon for you x

  1. Aw, I love that last picture, too! Totally happiness and contentment! It’s great that you have somewhere to go that you all enjoy! I love old castles and for a little boy, they can be exciting places!

  2. I am loving your castles and dragon hunting. We absolutely love castles, and went to one last weekend too. They are amazing places for children to explore x

  3. What a lovely outing! BattleKid looks like he had such fun – great photos too. I do miss a visit to a castle, as there aren’t any over here in the states! I’m feeling an urge to go dragon hunting…! x
