Sunday my children, my husband and I took some time to look up local corn mazes in our state and found one about an hour away from us at Beech Hill Farmstand. After much consideration of gas price and how much admission would cost we decided to get ready and have a family day together outside of our house!
Admission wasn’t all that bad, AJ and Baby K were young enough to have no fee and the rest of us were only $3 a piece (would be $5 a piece if we wanted to do all three of their mazes). We arrived after our one hour drive and paid to get in … from there we ventured on our way:
Let it be known that this was our first corn maze and so we were not certain of what to expect. The decision was made to take the American Treasures maze where we learned a lot about American history and important landmarks along the trail. Ki had to complete a crossword puzzle and had a list of treasures she had to find (which were all American history landmarks with detailed information):
Even AJ helped Ki with her crossword puzzle and loved doing this event with his big sister, baby brother and Daddy. We were in the maze for about one hour and Baby K traveled in style with Daddy pushing him:
After we thought we had made it through the whole maze we found that Ki had two landmarks to cross off of her list and a couple more crossword puzzle items to fill in and so our adventure continued on while we back tracked and tried to find those posts with the information on them:
Finally we found all the clues and treasures listed on Ki’s little brochure and we got the thumbs up to leave the maze:
On our way back the kids were playing on a rock and I just couldn’t help but capture this great photo of the children together, since it’s rare for them to get along so well for such a long period of time I had to get them on photo smiling together (yes AJ is “fake” smiling):
Needless to say we had a blast and it was something we could all experience for the 1st time together which made it all more incredible! Usually Ki has done this or that with her Dad or my husband, the adventure man, has done it previously but venturing out in the cold NH Fall day to go through a corn maze was a first for all five of us and we truly enjoyed our time there!
Make it a Happy Day!
