|Guarding the pumpkins|
A new feature this year is a retired fire truck fenced in and turned into a giant slide. It was exactly as fabulous as that sounds!
|Who thinks up this wonderful stuff?|
Ever popular are the old-fashioned water pumps. Playing with these ensured the children became soaking wet immediately whether or not the grey clouds were ever to let loose rain on us.
Children drove all manner of vehicles . . .
. . . or just ran with the wind!
Children sat on tires . . .
. . . and rode in a wagon pulled by a tractor!
We paused to eat lunch on the convenient picnic benches, then agreed to take the children on the Mini Corn Maze, advertised as requiring 10-15 minutes (in contrast to the Big Corn Maze which takes one to two hours).
I had never before gone in a corn maze because I suspected I would dislike the feelings of being closed-in and lost which are supposed to be considered "fun." Today's experienced confirmed my suspicions. Not my cup of tea!
