Corn Maze!

on September 22, 2016

This was our third year at Sever’s Corn Maze. A few people were surprised we were going this early, but it was going to be warm out and we had no plans for Sunday, so it was perfect timing. Since it was also the Vikings/Packers game, there weren’t many people there at all, which made for extra good timing.

We did the corn maze straight away. We got there about 2:00 and I didn’t want to leave it until the end of the day and risk darkness. This year we actually hit all of the letters! The girls took turns getting us from letter to letter. It’s such a good lesson in map reading and finding your way, I totally love it.

After the corn maze the girls wanted to run around the hay bale maze. I love this maze since I always get great pictures!

They have two corn pits and this year, we only played in one of them. They buried each other’s legs, swung off the rope swings, did the monkey bars, and then they were done. The corn pits are generally good people watching, so play on.

A new addition this year was the pig races. I loved these! The announcer and his kids were hilarious, and it was fun watching the pigs zoom around the race track.

Another new addition was the Parakeet Landing. It’s like the butterfly thing we did at Como Zoo but possibly better since it’s super easy to get a parakeet to land on your stick! I have about 45 pictures from our 15 minutes here since every time the girls caught a bird, they asked me to take a picture. Also, as soon as they caught a bird, they shooed him off their stick and wanted a different bird. It drove me slightly mad since I was catching most of them, but oh well. At least the birds were very pretty. White, green, yellow, and all the shades of blue.

On our way out we bought a tiny pumpkin for our front porch, and a bag of local apples. Perfect way to end the day!
