Sever's Corn Maze! (Why did we wait so long!)

Sunday, September 25, 2011

I rarely get to pop in on the SMBMSP events because they are usually on a day when I can't get away from previous commitments (read: my one bonus day off with the kiddos & a day I don't have childcare here!)

But last weekend they arranged for us to have a Sunday morning tweetup...
Bacon anyone?

And that tweetup was taking place at Sever's Corn Maze -

I hadn't been out to Sever's Corn Maze in probably 10 years...

I didn't think I was missing anything - but as it turns out...I cannot believe we haven't been making this an annual thing!! It has apparently evolved over the years! HURRAY!

The kids bolted immediately to the hay bale maze...
(notice D's striped sweatshirt being sneaky in the background?)

and from there...they went to the jumper...
think, open air bounce house...

oh MY! what a good time THAT was!

We've never been to a 'corn pit' before - ever.
I've seen dozens of pictures of our friends' kids having a blast in corn pits over the years...

And we wasted no time jumping right in!




The kids thought Gabby the Camel was pretty cool -

And then we moved on to other you don't see these everyday in the city 'pets' ~



There was a little 'bird house' that you could enter and hang out with these birdies...

(The hubs stayed safely on the outside of said enclosure)

But the kids and I had a good time inside...


That explains this little guy here, who was hanging out near the corn pit!
I took his picture and kept thinking to myself...
this has to be someone's pet...we don't just have these kinds of birds fluttering around in Shakopee Minnesota! (Turns out, he got loose the day before...and no one could catch him!)

And while that was fun and all - the kids thought having their very first exotic animal ride would be even more fun!
(Are Camels exotic animals? I guess I don't even know, but regardless, it was something totally out of the ordinary and fun for us!)

They had the opportunity to 'milk' a cow...

And play Astronaut...in correlation with this year's Space Theme at Sever's ~







And while we could have spent the entire day doing this, that and the other thing...
It IS the Corn Maze after all...

The hubs navigated us through the maze with ease...following the map - enabling us to find the 6 'hidden' astronauts at various stations throughout the maze...

Sever's was a great outing for our entire family...
Something for all of us to do...
We could have easily spent many more hours there...





I don't know why we waited so long to take the kiddos out to Sever's...
But I know we won't be waiting so long again!

& a HUGE THANKS SMBMSP for organizing this fun, family friendly tweetup!~

(and for those of you wondering - Yes, our girl IS wearing her PJ's again...I dunno...she has a thing for pj's I guess! she marches to the beat of her own drum...and that is just fine with us! - Mostly!)

Love the photos! That is way more than a pumpkin patch, so cool to see all the different activities. Fall is so fun.

If my friend doesn't do her daughters party at a pumpkin patch again we will have to go!
