The first thing we did was to enter the maze. At first, we let the kids take turns deciding which way to go at each intersection. When we made it back to the beginning of the maze, my husband decided that his strategy needed to be employed. So at every decision point, we turned right. We wandered around that maze for a long time, turning right every time (on the plus side, I think the kids now know which hand is their right!) and after all of our legs and feet were aching, we made it out! Ah, the rejoicing was great.
Next, the kids had so much fun riding the ponies (thank you Grandma & Grandpa!!). Clearly, something is lacking in our children’s zoological education- or they’ve had too many rides on pretend animals on the merry-go-round- because X-man asked, “Is this a real live horse?”
We wandered around the pumpkin patch and the kids enjoyed playing around the pumpkins. Z-urchin loved riding on Grandpa’s shoulders. We found a huge stack of hay bales and everyone had a good time climbing up to the top (even the kid in a cast).
What a fun family day! Thank you, Grandma & Grandpa for joining us on our adventure!
