We let the boys do a ropes course. Noah was a little disappointed to not get to do the "real" course, but you had to be six years old to do it. Next year!

He did a great job, and fortunately didn't fall from fifteen or twenty feet up the couple of times he forgot the cardinal rule of not unhooking both carabiners at once.
