On October 20th, 2012 we went out as family to Bob's Corn Maze. The place was crowded but we were lucky and it only rained before and after we were there. We walked through the corn maze basically letting Benjamin lead the way. They had two kids maze's one with a story and one with a like a treasure hunt of sorts.
Benjamin's boots and pants were a little too big but I thought they were warm and he looked like he was ready for a cold and muddy fall day. He kept finding clumps of dirt and would play with them. I love watching my kids explore and learn about the world around them. When I take the time to slow down and appreciate things like dirt clumps too it's nice.
Elizabeth was strapped to her daddy the whole time and quite content. We went on a hay/tractor ride over to the big pumpkin patch but we didn't stay. I just wanted to take the ride and enjoy something else before heading home.
Once home it was back to studying for daddy and playing with toys for Benjamin. In my dad's van that we acquired there was a gift I had given him. An old fashion truck with food and stuff...like a food basket but in the truck. Benjamin loves to play with that truck now. Of course he broke it. But daddy says he can fix it. I will admit I am a little sentimental about it.
The things that Benjamin finds amusing to play with amaze me. We obtain toys for him and yet its normal everyday decorations, tools or other household items that he wants to play with. As long as it makes him happy I guess.
It was great to get out of the house together that day as a family and enjoy the fall season.
