I went to the pumpkin patch this morning with the family. We went to Schilter's in Nisqually like we do every year. Of course I was freezing...can't keep warm lately. They have tons of pumpkins, a corn cannon that you shoot an ear of corn into a field ~ if you get it in the trough, you get a free pumkin, a hay maze, corn maze, pony rides, hay rides, petting farm, toddler play area, hay pyramid for climbing. It's always a lot of fun for all of us.
After doing the hay maze and petting farm, we went on the hay ride. My wife and kids got off the wagon at the corn maze (Themed for the presidential election), and I rode back because I have site duty.
I just got a call from my wife (2-1/2 hours later): "You need to have a talk with your girls!" ~ She just found her way out of the corn.
Our oldest daughter, who has asperger's syndrome, of course had to have the map and remembers every turn so she led her little sister right through. A little way in, they took off & ditched my wife.
They came out, went looking for pumpkins, got some cocoa, and went back to the petting farm all while their mother ~it's her birthday, by the way~ was lost in a field of corn with no map and no sense of direction.
Well I have someone coming to relieve me early from my construction site, so I will go home & try not to laugh...I'm sure I will fail miserably.
