Corn Maze!

We went to a corn maze last weekend with Monkey's Aunts & Uncles (the local ones, anyway).

It's possible to get quite lost in the corn. Letting Monkey choose what direction you're going to go at each intersection is a good way to do it. Although he did find the entrance again one time! (Us big kids found it twice more, I think.)

They told us that our corn maze was the shape of a tractor. I don't think that I ever figured out how that worked.

It certainly wasn't a whole lot of help in finding the way out!

Of course, a little boy has to stop and look at the rocks he finds.

And, having recently discovered his pockets, they should be filled with rocks!

They had hosted a scavenger hunt in the maze a few days before, and had fun shaped paper punches here and there. Monkey had a good look at each one. We found feet, a fish, a star, a lizard, and at least one more that I can't remember any more.

It took us about 30-45 minutes to solve the maze.

It probably would have taken less time had we gotten to the serious business of solving it a bit quicker, but we were having too much fun.

We did get there eventually.

Fantabulous pictures!

Reminds me that we need to get out to one of the corn mazes around here before the weather gets too grotty.

Dang, that jacket is awesome.

We had a great time. I got that jacket a while back when I needed one in a hurry. It's still huge on him, but huge is so fun!
