Corn Maze Fun!

On Friday we went to a local corn maze for a fun afternoon of wandering around inside a seriously confusing maze of corn stalks.  We have visited this particular maze before, but this year I set up the field trip consisting of around 70 people.  Nothing like a little added stress!  Once we all got signed in, paid, and accounted for, we were off.  The group I was in seemed to do fairly well in finding our way through.

They have signs posted throughout the maze that have questions at varying levels of difficulty.  If you can answer them correctly, they will point you in the right direction.  Of course, even if you go in the right direction, there are still lots of side trails that lead you around and around in circles.  I can't tell you how many times we ended up making big loops or wrong turns.

There are also these elevated platfforms in a couple of places to help you see your way.  Its fairly easy to keep your bearings at this maze though since you can see the mountain and barn at all times.  Even knowing where the entrance and exit is, we still managed to get completely turned around.  The kids had a great time though and that's what matters, right?

After finally wandering around for quite some time, we managed to find our way out.  We then hopped on the hay ride with a bunch of our friends.

After the hayride, the kids went on a super cute cow train ride for a quick trip around the field.  

It was a nice, relaxing way to spend a lovely fall day with friends.  What could be better?
