My friend Liane and her two girls Rowan and Gracen invited us to go to a place called the Enchanted Forest. It is about an hour or so south of Portland. It turned out to be a really cool place! There was a long winding path that had little dioramas here and there of famous nursery rhymes. Like Little Ms. Muffet above. Through the eyes of a six year old, this place is magical.

A Shoe Slide.
There was also a live performance included in the ticket price and it was actually really funny. It was good humor for kids and adults. Rowan, Maddie, Izzie and Gracen picking out where they wanted to sit.
Izzie giggling at one of the jokes.
This place even had a mascot walking around. Maddie and Izzie did not want to talk to it, which worries me about Disney World next year! I think they'll be fine. They didn't mind the Disney characters on the cruise. I think they just weren't expecting this guy.
Inside a little nook was a robotic performance of Blackbirds in a Pie.
The roller coaster cost extra and Izzie went on it with Liane, Rowan and Gracen but Maddie wanted to stay back with me. It was a really fun day. I'm so glad our friends invited us!
