We made our annual trip to the corn maze.
It officially feels like fall around here.
Andrew's favorite season. He loves it!
We all had fun, but it wasn't quite the same experience as the last two years. As we were pulling in to the parking lot, we saw some kids playing laser tag in the woods. Brandon thought that looked AWESOME and had his heart set on playing. They are hour-long sessions of outdoor laser tag. The girls had no interest in that, so Andrew took B. He LOVED it.
They had sweet guns
with cool scopes.
Perfect 11-year-old-boy fun.
While B was shooting at strangers,
the girls and I found other ways to entertain ourselves.
We took a tram ride around the property.
The girls rode the cow train.
Whitney panned for gems.
And was pleasantly surprised with what she found.
I had the girls pose for pictures.
And we checked out the pumpkins.
This was a hundred pounder. Whoa.
When B's trigger finger was worn out,
we all met up at the corn maze.
We measured ourselves.
It was such a beautiful day and I was excited to see if we could solve the maze again.
We found the first couple of clues, but after doing all the other activities,
we didn't have it in us to finish the maze. Boo.
We gave up and headed home before the meltdowns started.
Our lesson learned for next year? Choose between the extras or the corn maze, but don't try to squeeze it all in. I was just happy to have some fun family time on a beautiful fall day.
