The Corn Maze

I just realized that I forgot to post about what we did this past Saturday. Okay... here's our Saturday...

First... wake up have breakfast (that's a duh, right?)

Then... kids watch cartoons (typical Saturday Morning right?) as they were watching those cartoons, I left for ballet and it turned out to be a private lesson as that I was the only one there (besides the teacher)

Came back home, changed into normal clothes and had Ken put on his soccer clothes. He had his last game that afternoon and it was great. He has progressed so much and he was so proud.

Then we tried to go to a pumpkin patch nearby, but it was soooo crowded! Did not look fun at all! So we kept on driving down the street and went to our local campaign headquarters and picked up new yard signs to support our choice for President, Senate, local Congress, etc.

And then Guy has a brilliant idea! We drove past a great looking corn maze/pumpkin patch a few weekends past... sure it was right outside Greeley, but that didn't bother us one bit! It was well worth the drive! We went to Fritzler's Maze. There was sooo much to do.

First we went through "The Creature". It was actually a lot of fun, but it was a maze in the dark! Ken and I got a little turned around and we ended up coming out of the maze too early. Oh well. Arcadia took a little more convincing, so Ken and I went first and let her know that it was fun and not scary at all. After that, Guy saw that they had Helicopter rides. Now none of us have ever been on a helicopter so we thought it would be fun. We had to go two to a ride so Ken went with Daddy and Arcadia went with me. It was a blast! I don't remember ever having so much fun... LOL

We got to see the maze from the air, it was so cool. Arcadia giggled and laughed and screamed the whole time.

After that we went through the 3-D Maze. That was neat. We had to wear special glasses that made the florescent paint stand out at us. Guy and I were impressed, the kids, not so much. Oh well...

Then onto the Corn Maze. Now... if you look closely, you can see at the bottom of the rms in FARMS the entrances are there. We entered through the M and came out of the R. There was a WHOLE other side for us to go through, but that first portion wore us down! We didn't think we'd ever get out of there. LOL

After the Maze, we let the kids play in a corn box (like a sand box, but with corn). They had a ball and Guy was taken back to his childhood on the farm.

Then we went on the Jumping Pillow... lots of fun, but poor Arcadia kept getting knocked down.
They also had a barrel train which I rode on with the kids and they had a blast, and then we went off to shoot corn cobs at targets. The kids loved that too.
I tell you, after that day, I was exhausted!
