Corn Maze Fun

One of Abe's organic hay customers tried something new this year. They did this HUGE corn maze. He gave us free tickets to go thru it. Somehow it didn't seem that exciting and the days kept going by...
Then one Saturday Abe was out hauling hay and he called and said he would be coming by there, and if we wanted to meet him there, we could check it out. So we did.
This picture is the view from up on one of the stairs/bridges they have in the maze.

I must say it was a lot more fun than I expected. The girls really enjoyed it! The air was brisk and fresh. They had a bunch of points where there was a sign with an early American history question, with multiple choice answers. Each answer had a corresponding arrow, giving you a clue of where you should go (that is, if you got the right answer!).
We never got majorly lost, and for another time it might be fun to go in without a map, and see what happens! :)

There was actually three mazes. The kid's one was pretty easy and small. The two others were much more involved. We went thru them all.

They had a bunch of other family fun things to do, mostly involving corn. Cornhole game, and this big slide where you go flying down into a "corn" box (like a sand box). That was a big hit! They had a small train pulling barrel cars for the kids to ride, numerous campfires to sit around, and old-fashioned, cooked in a big cast iron kettle, stew, also hamburgers and hot dogs. They had a teepee set up with a fire pit in the middle that was pretty neat, too.

All in all, it was well worth going, and the girls enthusiastically said they'd want to go again next year.
