Since our group was a bit more laid back about getting through the maze, we decided to take the political quiz. With all our collective wisdom, we only got one answer wrong. (I still take exception to their "right" answer for that one. I don't think the President has to be born in the U.S., I think he has to be a U.S. citizen. Technical difference.)
Discussing the answer. It actually got warm in the maze after a while, we had full sun and the corn was so tall it blocked the wind.
Our group L-R: Jason S., Mr. P, Emily, Stephany, Dad and Me, Megan, and Danny. Thanks Mrs. P. for taking the picture!
There were three bridges in the maze that gave you a good view of your immediate surroundings. In the background you can see the tower for viewing the whole maze. I didn't make the climb this year, but it's a neat sight, and sometimes you can spot your friends if they're close enough.
Which way should we go? Megan, Me, Dad, Emily and Mr. P study the map.
The two Dads were our primary navigators. Sometimes I followed along with my map, sometimes I just walked. It was interesting to see what different people did to keep from being lost. Dad always kept his map with North pointing up, but with all the twists and turns in the maze, I had to turn my map so it looked like what I was seeing!
I made it a little more than half way through, then Baby and I had had enough walking for the day! The rest of our group made it all the way through. Bravo!
Sadie P. and Haley. They were with the girl's competitive group, and made it out just seconds after the boys! I think these two were a little more concerned about gabbing than about winning though. ;-)
The a-MAZE-ing Matthew! At the rate he's growing, next year he'll be looking over the corn! Okay, not quite. The corn was at least eight feet tall. But he is growing quickly.
Haley and I at the pumpkin patch. What a lovely way to enjoy a beautiful Autumn afternoon!
Hooray for fall and friends!
