The Corn Maze

25 Oct

Yesterday, I showed you a glimpse of our corn maze adventure.  The boys loved going down the slide that was at this farm.

Today, I have part two of this “family date” post to share with you.  I don’t know what we are going to do with all the pictures from this outing, but I can’t stop looking at them!  Please enjoy this photo book below :).

We all started really, really excitedly going through the corn maze.  It was an adventure.  This was a perfect environment for my little independent toddler as well.  She loves to walk, and we could just let her GO here, with all her walking going in the right direction.

I don’t normally make my kids wear “dressy, church” clothes as they like to refer to them.  Knowing we could get awesome pictures, I laid out special outfits for them.  Nothing against the usual wardrobe revolving around Superheroes.  I like that too.

She melts me and totally has me around her little finger.  My best girl is my daughter.  What a gift!!!

As our time frame in the maze got “lengthened” by our wrong turns, the boys got hot and started shedding some layers.  It became like an episode of Survivor as we got hot and ran out of water.

We call this J’s “million dollar smile”.  When he smiles with those big blue eyes, you can’t help but smile back!

This son of mine is hilarious and a complete blast.  He’s got a sense of humor that could land him a stand up comedy job (we think) anytime he wanted one! :)

There was a little game throughout the maze about a mystery to solve.  Every sign gave you some clues, and if we made it to the end, I’m sure we would have figured it out.

They are best friends!  It is a completely beautiful thing as a mom to see.

After a few “self-made paths,” we finally emerged from the maze.  There is nothing wrong with the entrance also acting as the exit, in our case.

We got on the wagon ride, and took it around the property to their little farm.

On the farm there were live animals that you could pet and feed.

There was also a pumpkin patch!  You could pick pumpkins right off the vine to buy.

As part of your entry fee to this corn maze adventure place, you got to pick a free small pumpkin to take home.  Reagan was thrilled!

After the farm and wagon ride, we went back to the entrance where the big slide was and enjoyed some of their other activities.  One of which were these stacks of hay to jump on and from.

It was a boy’s paradise!

Reagan was obsessed with this “cow train” and might have ridden it a couple of times in a row.  She even got her own ride when other children choose to get off and do other activities.  She was obsessed!

There was a big corn silo that you could climb in and play with all the dried corn kernels.

Boys will be boys and find a good fight at all times :).

The boys got a kick out of shooting corn stalks at wood cows as well.

As you can see, we are a fan of this place!  We had so much fun, and we stayed the whole four hours it was open on Sunday!  Now do you want to know where it is!?!

It is at Mitcham Farm which is located just 30 miles east of downtown Atlanta in Oxford.  If you go to this link you will find it at on Half off Depot.  This coupon is for $5.00 admittance for everything I have talked about!  That is a great deal for a corn maze, hay ride, farm experience, free personal pumpkin, cow ride, slide, corn shooter, and corn barrel!  Reagan and J were both free too, so it only cost us $15.  We were thrilled!

If you go and try this place out, I’d love to hear about your experience!  Remember, pay attention to your map in the maze.  You could get lost.  It happens.

I hope you are having a great week!  It is almost the weekend!   If you haven’t entered my giveaway yet, there is still a small window!  You have till midnight tonight!

**Neither Half Off Depot nor Mitcham Farm has compensated me in any way for writing this post. Neither one even knows I exist.  I paid for my coupon like everyone else.  We just had a great time, and I wanted to share it with you.

    Fantastic photographs, as always! You do such great things with your family, and the look on your kids’ faces as they share the experiences with you and your husband is a joy to see.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally
    educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit
    the nail on the head. The problem is something
    which not enough men and women are speaking
    intelligently about. I am very happy I found this in my search for something relating to
    this.
