Meg and Daddy decided to take a trip to Sweetfield Farms two weeks ago with her cousins for some weekend fall fun and attempt their 4 acre corn maze. Is it just me or do most mommies start thinking about sunscreen, bumble bees, corn snakes and allergies when it comes to outdoor excursions? Yeah, I’m an overly-cautious Mommy, but I’d rather be an ounce over-cautious than under, right?
Yeah I’ll admit I also had visions of Malachai from the movie Children of The Corn snatching my child and disappearing into the cornfields.
Thankfully, there were no freaky children to be found, well for the most part anyway! I kid!
Anyway, the corn maze up was set up with check points where they had to answer a question and if answered correctly would point you in the right direction, but if answered incorrectly would send you to a dead end.
Meg happily played follow the leader and led Daddy through the corn maze answering all the questions with ease.
There was tons for the kids to do! They had all sorts of hay bales set up like dragsters, spiders, and tractors for the kids to climb over.
*Cue Rocky music*
There were photo opportunities to be had…
Water games to play…
Pumpkins to pick from…
treehouses to be climbed, corn shooters and hayrides to be had.
All in all it was a fabulous day and Meghan was excited to tell me all about it when she got home. Of course, I hugged her and told her I was happy that she’d had such a great day with Daddy and her cousins, however the mommy in me was thinking thank (insert expletive) for no Malachai, bee stings, cornsnakes, or allergies! Life is good!
Check back Monday to see how our Halloween went!
