Sometimes we do fun things. One of my favorite things about this blog is going back through all the pictures and stories to see that we actually do have good experiences as a family. It’s easy to get caught up in what everyone else seems to be doing, according to their Facebook or Instagram accounts, and feel like we don’t lead very exciting or fulfilling lives. Even though I know in my head that all of these extra things do not make or break a family, sometimes I have a hard time feeling that truth in my heart. So I like the visual record of the many fun things we do do 🙂 as a family.
The weekend before Halloween we went with our new friends, the Bergquists to a corn maze and had the funnest time. I should say new friends to me, Henley, and Becca, Ty and Michael went to high school together and I was so excited to realize that Ty actually likes Michael who just so happens to be married to Casandra with whom I get along quite well. Another plus, Michael and Casandra have two daughters…who just so happen to be the exact same age as our two daughters…Now when does that happen!?
We’re rebels who picked ears of corn to shell as we walked through the maze…Luckily the owners didn’t kick us out for breaking the rules.
Henley and Lucy, her new friend, had a blast running through the child-sized straw bale maze.
They held hands throughout the whole thing and went through it five times.
Two other fun attractions at the corn maze were a cow-train pulled by a tractor and a zipline. Henley absolutely lost her marbles over riding on the cow train. She cried the entire time. Lucy, on the other hand, loved it and couldn’t wait for another turn. Henley rode the zipline over and over again, even though it was high and nearly gave me a heart attack to watch her sailing, all by herself, ten feet in the air. Lucy was all set to go down the zipline but lost her nerve at the last second and had to climb down. At least each girl found her own favorite activity.
