While Grandpa was gone camping, Grandma came and treated us to our first corn maze. It was super hot for October, every row looked the same as the last, and we never really ate lunch. It was still fun!
I couldn't help thinking it was the perfect setting for a murder mystery. We were in there for SO long and still didn't finish the whole thing. We got hot and thirsty and soon the kids were looking for the way out. Still missing half of our clues and dinosaur rubbings, we took a shortcut under the bridge to find some refreshment.
Cal and Grandma were the best at dino fact finding, but it was just too much for little legs. We finished up on Google when we got home.
After drinks we took a second shot at the mini-maze, where Cal managed to collect all five colors and Mama managed to still feel lost.
Ah, the cow train and a chance to sit down. Plus how can one resist a ride with your name on it?
Tate and Calvin rode the train at least five times and there was a little competitive tricycling
and duck races too.
So good to start the week outdoors and sun-soaked and hanging out with my family.
Maybe a little corny, but true.
