Crazy Corn Maze

For a fun Fall activity, we spent the morning at the corn maze.  Unfortunately Daddy wasn't able to come along with us and neither was Jordan (due to Bible Bee study), so it was just us girls and the little ones (but us girls know how to have fun!).  The weather was perfect and sun was shinning brightly!  (And someone forgot their sunglasses... name withheld to protect the guilty.) 

Ready to go!
Okay, so you might not be able to read the rules posted on the left there... but don't worry.  We had a little too much fun bending the rules for some joke pictures.

Broken Rule #1:
 There will be no eating of the corn!

Broken Rule #2:
 There will be no cutting through of the corn maze!

Broken Rule #3:
There will be no running through the corn!

Broken Rule #4:
There will be no rude treatment of the other participants!
(Yes, I made Eden take her shoes off before posing this picture.)

 But seriously, we were very good (as I'm sure you can tell).

And we were lost too (well, sort of).

 "Happy Trails to you until we meet again!"
(That's rather comforting, don't you think?)

 Mommy doing the live Facebook updates along the way...

 My favorite cowboy!

 Emergency Exit in case of an emergency.
This probably happened because I developed a nice blister within a minute of our journey... somehow I made it out of the maze alive. 

 Things seem to be slightly out of proportion here...

 I think this bear just got back from aerobics class!

Judah found some corn...

Uh oh!  He led Havilah and Benjamin astray!

Whenever there is a mirror, girls take advantage of it... 

Um, well, I guess it depends on what kind of mirror...
(But I did take advantage of it!)

 "Hey, come up here!  The view is fantastic!"

 There is the spectacular Mt. Hood in the distance.

 Aha!  Now we can figure out where the paths go!

Hey, everyone!

We made it through!

It was my idea to take a picture like this, but my Shiloh and Eden thought it was silly.
Their reason: "Everyone is looking at us!"
Well, I guess they were right.  This picture is now on our blog!
(The Phantom hand on the left there is rather mysterious...)

Haha! Hilarious post! My family (or more accurately, me) has broken many of those same rules as well. Just this last time I smuggled corn out of the maze in my jacket (but don't tell anyone). :0)

Looks like you all had a very fun time at the corn maze! Sure love your creativity with the pictures and captions! They are all great! For some reason, I keep thinking about that quote that goes something like . . . "Normal is boring!" with you guys! (In a good way! ;-) The one of your shadows waving from the overlook is really cool! They sure had some "interesting" things in the corn maze! Whew, glad you got out okay, with blisters, missing sun glasses, having to eat raw corn and all!:-) Love how you always make things soooo much fun!
Mrs. Bowes
P.S. Good job, Jordan, on your diligent studying! Just a little while longer! Keep it up!

Kyle!!! :P Well, now that you posted it on the internet it won't be long before the FBI find out... ;)

Thank you, Mrs. Bowes! Yes, we did have a wonderful time. :D LOL!

Elanee: I never knew a blister could do so much damage, right? ;)
