We are taking full advantage of weekends and trying to squeeze in all the fall activities!! This weekend was no different. After I got a haircut on Saturday, we headed to a local corn maze along with Nani, Papa, and my mom. Are corn mazes just a Midwest thing? Assuming they are. Anyway, with the exception of last year, we’ve gone to this corn maze for the past 10ish years or so? We always have fun. A is amazing at navigating through the maze – I just follow along. We always have apple donuts. The past few years, we’ve brought a wagon for the boys and it wasn’t easy pulling that wagon over the uneven terrain in the maze. With both boys a bit older, we didn’t need the wagon and it was SO MUCH easier!! This was probably my favorite maze year to date because the boys were super into it. A or Papa would lead the way and the boys would often run ahead to find the check point. It was as if they thought they were leading us through the maze. W was awesome at finding all the numbered check points on his map. We navigated the maze for over 2 hours and it wasn’t until the very end that the boys mentioned they were getting tired. I was so impressed. Once we finished, the boys picked out popcorn. S was overly excited about his cheese popcorn. In keeping with tradition, we headed to a nearby restaurant on a lake and watched the sunset as we ate dinner. Such a fun afternoon/evening! I thought for sure the boys would fall asleep on the way home, but no. Also, S insisted on sleeping with his cheese popcorn.
Sunday was our usual. The boys were a bit crazy (loud) at church and Starbucks. I was so tired and once we got home, I tried to lay on the couch for a bit. I think I fell asleep for about 5 minutes and when W noticed, he woke me up by beating on his toy drum. How thoughtful. We attempted to watch football and baseball – always a losing effort with kids, but on the bright side, our teams won. The boys made a mess of the house. I made dinner. And that was our weekend.
