That’s right, it was
corn maize maze weekend!!! [I love a good pun]
This year we headed back to Belvedere Plantation, and it was the first year that the entire sisterwife clan was able to attend. Jamie always has “something else to do” the weekend that we go, but luckily this year she was able to fit us into her busy schedule. It was a perfect Fall weekend, prime for all the Fall activities we had planned.
Most importantly though was the Pumpkin Mountain Slide. This is no ordinary kiddie slide [of years past]…
First Annual Corn Maze Adventure
… This is a legit slide. It goes underground, ok! We made the hike up the “Mountain”…
… And then it was do or die. I’m not going to lie, it’s slightly intimidating standing on top of said “mountain”, looking down into the dark tube that you’re voluntarily getting ready to plunge in to. But then the 5 year old in front of you throws them self down the slide with pure excitement and you realize that you’re being overly dramatic. It’s the best 10 seconds you’ll have all day!
After we explored some of the other activities [pumpkin cannon, farm animals, and a mock paintball game] we headed over to the main attraction, and the real reason behind our visit, the Corn Maze.
We were extremely optimistic going in. But this year’s maze proved quite challenging for us veterans. One wrong turn and you’re all sorts of turned around…
We did make it out though [without having to wave the HELP flag], but it certainly wasn’t our best time. I guess there’s always next year.
