We were off today to Telling Tales, a community literacy festival at Westfield Heritage Village. We couldn't stay for the whole day because of other more important commitments (Daddy Jim's birthday party!!) but it was still worth the trip. Westfield is a pioneer village, reconstructed with original buildings from the early to mid 1800s. The staff were dressed in period costume, or else dressed up as characters from famous works of fiction. There were lots of readings by some great authors and story tellers, a book exchange for the kids, and of course, all of it in a beautiful setting. And it was free! This is definitely an event that we will look forward to next year.
