Yesterday was the perfect day for us to enjoy our local corn maze! The weather couldn't have been better - a nice 63 degrees with the sun shining! We've been talking about going for a while now, but when the boys came down with colds last week, we opted to stay home. Nearly every trip to and from daycare, depending on the route we take, we drive right past the corn field. All the boys needed to see was the tractor sitting out front to get excited about going.
The boys were so eager when they saw all the hay bales. There was two "little kid" mazes there. JP did awesome!
Hunter, however, wasn't too impressed. He stood in this spot for quite a while as he was his brother navigate though. Eventually he started back up, but then climbed over a few bales to get out.
We let the boys play on the play around on the play equipment before we went over the behavior rules for the maze. I haven't been to any other maze before, but this maze has clues to help you through the maze. Perry was our clue reader and the boys acted like they knew all the answers to questions about the Egyptians. (We played level difficult!)
The maze went back and forth between the hay bales and the corn. For the most part we let the boys take turns leading us around. One would go until we were lost and then the other would take over.
At this point, we had been in the corn portion of the maze for quite a while. We came upon one of our clue spots and the boys found this piece of corn hanging down. It seemed like Hunter had just had an epiphany. "Mom! This is corn! We're in the middle of a corn field!" Ha! Took you a while bud!
My job, other than cameraman, was the "cattle herder." You know, make sure they keep going where they're supposed to.
Towards the end, the boys were anxious to get back out so they could go play again. JP cracked me up a few times. When he and I would hit a dead end he would exclaim, "Uh oh! I guess we'll try again tomorrow!" And then would just stand there until I told him to turn around. : )
Once we made it out of the maze (way faster than in years before!), we headed over to the little petting zoo.
Although JP really wanted to go see the little pony, he refused to pet it.
He did however love on this little lamb, until his attention was diverted to this lamb on the right taking a giant dump, practically in his face. He thought this was the COOLEST!
Hunter also showed us he has a soft side too. He really enjoyed the petting zoo.
We finished up taking pictures in the pumpkins. Here is Perry and little JP.
When it became my turn, JP decided he wanted to be in the big one, so I crouched down for the little one as he stretched out onto his tippy toes just so he could see out!
