We had a great day at the corn maze. It started really cold but soon the layers were off, and we enjoyed the fall day. They had lots to do and see.
This was the child's "haybail maze". The big kids enjoyed running on top and jumping over the openings. Ice Cream thought this was great and got braver and braver to jump over larger areas the more he played.
We then found this GREAT "corn pit". Much like the ball pits you see at indoor parks this one was full of corn. It was HUGE! I should have taken a picture of the whole thing. We all enjoyed it, but the corn found its way into all the pockets and cuffs of all our clothes. We have been finding corn in the wash for a week.
We did do the actual corn maze. Daddy took us around it fast, and we found all the places we were suppose to be. Candy was excited to find a corn cob on the ground. We said they could not pick the ones on the stalks.
Milk Dud fell asleep even with all the excitement.
We then found the pig races. We have never seen them before but enjoyed watching them run. They really do run fast. They were after a mini doughnut, so who would not run fast?
Before we could leave we had to make one more stop in the corn pit. Candy even enjoyed the feel of the corn in her toes.
We had a great day and enjoyed a family outing together. We picked one of the busiest days the maze had, and we still had tons of fun. We did not get to see the petting zoo or the magic show, so we will have to try this again another year.
