Corn Maze Madness

We went with Mr and Mrs P to a local corn maze under the guise of doing research for the high school youth group. I need to report whether or not this maze will be fun for the older kids. In the end, I have to vote no only because there's no real rhyme or reason to the maze. They literally dropped us off at the entrance and that was it. They didn't even tell us if the exit was seperate from the entrance or what.

Other mazes in the area give you little clues along the way...trivia questions, etc and your answer determines which route to take. In this maze, Mrs P and I started leaving marks along our way. We realized we were passing the same turns over and over. The men laughed at us, but in the end, I'm sure they were very grateful to not walk past the same empty box of Spiderman Nerds again.

I will say we got a bit discouraged by all the walking in circles...with two little kids who wanted to be carried. But in the end we rallied and were determined to beat the maze. And beat it we did!

In the beginning...was a happy, rested, energetic family
You begin to see signs of tiredness even in Hank which is almost unheard of
Nevermind her devil-eyes. She was rolling her eyes at her brother who was practicing his best "yea, man I'm cool" pose

We ddin't see many others behind us so we think a bunch of people just gave up and went out through the entrance. Then we headed to the pumpkin patch where Hank chose a really big pumpkin. Jake still had some umph so he carried it to the hay wagon for Hank. What a nice big brother. :)
