Last Saturday we had planned to spend the day running errands and hanging out around the house due to impending rain in the forecast. However, after our errands were finished, the sun was still shining and the temps were hovering around a warm and balmy 80-degrees. We couldn't waste such a beautiful Fall day, so on a whim we decided to visit a local corn maze/harvest festival near our home.
Since our visit was unplanned, all we had to document our fun was Ben's camera on his phone.
Anyway, the kids had a blast with all the fun Fall activities. I'm not quite sure how a giant slide and bouncy houses/climbers fit into the realm of Fall harvest festivities, but the kids didn't seem to care.
We were fortunate enough to extend our corn pit experience by bringing quite a few kernels home with us. In addition to finding corn in the kids' pockets, there was also an ample supply in each one of their underwear--ack! It was at that moment that I gained all the affirmation I will ever need regarding my decision to refrain from the corn diving...because, seriously, does anyone have any idea where some of that corn has been?!
After the corn pit, we ate a carmel apple with some ice cold water. There was plenty of hot apple cider, coffee, and hot chocolate to be had, but the warm weather led most people looking for something to cool off with.
We made sure to pick up our pumpkins on the way out beffore loading our over-hyper children (well, 2-over hyper children...Olivia was completely conked out in her stroller by the end) into the mini van to head home. We definitely had a fun Fall day!
