This post is a part of the Fantabulous Fall Favorites blog chain put together by a great group of bloggers. The theme this week is treats. Be sure to check out all the great ideas shared at the end of this post!
Last year was our first year (I never went to one my whole life until age 41!), but I think we will make it an annual tradition. I get to be navigator, ha! It's not exactly like navigating small islands in a Florida bay, but not all that different either so I get that job.
Though my Mom did pretty well when we compared notes throughout the maze (Hi Mom!). It's exciting and fun and unique and even a little spooky. I mean, there you are, walking amongst 8-foot-tall corn stalks with only a map to guide you through twist after turn after dead end. All you can see is corn in every direction.
I thought it was a Midwest phenomenon until I looked at this map. And here's yet another directory. They're all over the country! Maybe there's one near you or somewhere you're traveling.
Corn mazes offer a lot of good things:
- Fresh air.
- Family togetherness.
- Map reading skills.
- Learning directions.
- Goal achievement.
- Making memories.
- A family tradition.
Here we go.
Brady's being brave, except it was the wrong way!
This was the view from a small bridge. Corn everywhere!
This is what you see if you look up.
They also had a pumpkin patch, hay ride, pumpkin & corn shooters, games, snacks, etc.
But Brady's favorite (he's the one in orange, how appropriate) was the air-filled jumpy dome. Wheee!
