Corn Maze!

For those of you who read my Enjoying Today post from yesterday did you guess correctly?

Yup, yesterday Collin and I packed the boys up and headed out to a corn maze.

Neither one of us had ever been to one before and we thought Keaton might like running around all willy nilly out in the field.

We were right.

He also liked collecting little treasures like rocks, corn kernels and corn husks.

Meanwhile, Hutton hung out in the  Ergo, tucked tightly against my chest. 

After about a half hour we realized, crap, we've been out here for awhile and we're still at the beginning.  Time to get serious.  But everywhere we turned seemed to lead us in a circle or resulted in a dead end.

It was starting to get late so we decided it was time to pick Keaton up and get a move on.  Keaton was less than thrilled about this.

What do you do with a tantruming toddler in the middle of a corn field?

Why, you toss him in the air, that's what.

After 55 minutes we finally, FINALLY, made it out! 

It was lots of fun and I hope to make this an annual fall tradition.

This is an awesome post! I can't wait to do this with Cayle. When you wrote about Keaton being less than thrilled with being picked up...that made me think of Cayle. Those independent little buggers! Glad you guys had a good time!

How fun!?! It looks like you had a GREAT time! I'm a little sad that we didn't go but, our corn maze was just packed with people on Saturday and that just takes all of the fun out of it for me! There's always next year, right?

Wow Kate your pics are beautiful here- especially the one of the row of corn and the one with the sun and husks- this is called "flare" when you take into the sun- great job! Love seeing Keaton Run, run, run!

Very fun! We went to Tanner's Orchard this past weekend and Emma got to run in the hay maze (shorter so kids can go in by themselves and parents can see over the top!) and had her first-ever barrel tractor ride...she LOVED it!! Don't you just LOVE fall?! Glad you guys enjoyed...great post!

You really got some great pics at the corn maze! This looked like so much fun. I can imagine Lucy being the exact same way next year when she can walk (not wanting to be picked up). Yet another thing to add to the list to do in the fall...I love this season! :)
