Mama Gets To Go To The Corn Maze!

Hooray! The Corn Maze! I love corn mazes, especially Spooner Farms, because they have 6 mailboxes you have to find and a theme each time. This time it was "Honey I Shrunk The Farm" Which was great because our kids had seen the movie Honey I Shrunk The Kids earlier this year over and over. So they were excited to take our journey through the big "yard" and encounter the scary looking but friendly Anty, slide down the huge Lego, almost get sucked up by the big lawn mower, and eat the big Oreo cookie in the middle of the lawn. And like the movie, we got extremely muddy!

Kids - all smiling - What! How'd that happen? (Oh yea, Dada's in the background making hilarious faces.) Sitting on a Spooner cow bench. - Pre mud.

In the middle of the maze on a giant lawn chair.

Jasper and Kivi "jumping" over the mud puddles.

The kids all loved these duck races. I don't even think they noticed them last year.

A family shot with giant pumpkins. Jasper and Opal were freezing - their hands were purple. We should've taken it when we took the cow pic, before the cold set in. But all in all, it was a great, fun, muddy thing to do for fall and for my birthday - I thought at the time - which was the next day.

WOW! You guys have been busy having lots of fun! Happy Birthday! (I do believe we forgot to sing to you!)

Glad you got to get to your corn maze, despite the mud. The kids' pumpkins look excellent! And we are praying for dear Kivi. Cooper has already made her a card in preparation for Wednesday!
