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...)

Bethany, I think you outdid yourself with this post:) I mean so much humor really cracked me up:):) It definitely had the touch of an authentic prankster:)

Bethany said...


Oh, I can't ever miss a chance for a juicy prank!!! I'm forever doomed to a life on the run. :P But I love it. ;)

Lindsey said...

Looks like fun, Bethany!! I know you will always treasure those memories forever.

do y'all really live that close to Mt. Hood? I'm assuming you've seen it up close then.
It's been on my bucket list to see and photograph for a while now.. perhaps one day :)

Bethany said...

Hey, Lindsey! :)

Yes, we live right at the base of Mt. Hood. :) You should come and photograph it someday... that way you'll be able to meet me. :D
