We got there just after they opened, so they were still getting everything set up. We explored the tent with displays of pumpkins and gourds, and a straw horse that Elias refused to sit on!
|It's really hard to balance the color inside a yellow and red tent!|
|Elias wasn't very impressed.|
In my mind, I hadn't intended on us trying to do the corn maze with Elias, but apparently that's what the hayride was for - to take you to the entrance of the maze. So he dropped us off there, and so... uh... I guess we'll do the maze! Thankfully the lady in the tent had mentioned that you should take all right turns in the maze, so we didn't have much trouble finding our way out. It was a LONG maze, though, so Elias pooped out, but Justin and I took turns carrying him piggyback, and we got there.
After enjoying the hayride back, again with Duke, we pulled out our snacks and enjoyed relaxing in the shade of some trees. As we were sitting there, we saw a couple pickup trucks pull up and empty big tubs of corn into some bins. We had no idea what they were doing, so we went to check it out, and it turns out that they have cornboxes for kids to play in - like a sandbox, but filled with corn! Elias LOOOOOOVED this!
The only way we could get Elias out of the cornbox was by telling him it was time to ride the train! We thought it was nice of them to fire up the train ride just for us! So that took them on a nice tour of the backwoods of the farm, while I enjoyed chatting with the farmer.
