Hobbit day at Oxenwood

We went to Oxenwood for a day in Middle Earth. We were Thorin's dwarves and we joined Gandalf and Bilbo Baggins on a dangerous quest to claim our kingdom back from the evil dragon Smaug. We met Bilbo in Bag End and learnt to fight as an army.  Deep, deep, deep inside the Misty Mountains, we had a riddle battle with the half-creature Gollum, before escaping and travelling through the Mirkwood where we battled giant spiders and fierce goblins. Finally we made it to the Lonely Mountain, where we encountered the mighty dragon, Smaug. Luckily we survived to tell the tale and the day provided us with lots of inspiration for our Middle Earth stories.
