2012 Week 42

Tyler lost his second tooth, once again due to biting into an apple :)  This is pretty exciting stuff for a 5 year old.
It's been a busy week, so we decided to get in some good family fun time on the weekend and took the kids to a corn maze.

The bonus this year is that both kids are now old enough that the corn maze kept their interest the entire time - no complaining they were tired or needing snacks or wanting to be carried! Instead we all took turns being the leader and found all 10 checkpoints in a record (for us) 30 minutes. Actually the kids found them - when it was my turn with the flag it took me forever to find a checkpoint while the kids seems to unerringly know which way to turn

Sam insisted that we hadn't had enough time wandering around the corn, so we spent another 20 minutes getting ourselves "lost" again before exploring the other activities.

There were animals to see and feed, bouncy houses, tractors and piles of hay to climb on, etc etc. I think Kaitlyn's favorite was this sledge-hammer thing. She went back to it at least 5 times, getting to within one mark of the top by the end of her last turn.

We didn't forget the obligatory "hay" ride - a nice little break to sit and enjoy the scenery.
