Our Wild Weekend... I WANT A BOAT!

"Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" - Mary Oliver

We had a great time at the Hayes Corn Maze today. It has been a busy weekend. Yesterday, I spent the day at the UPAEYC fall conference, and last night Dane's cousins slept over. Today we spent the gorgeous fall day at the corn maze.

They had a great big pile of hay for climbing and sliding.

There were animals to feed. We saw the HUGE cow's tongue as it reached for a cone of feed. (unfortunately, the cow was way too quick for the camera, so you get to see the pictures of the goats.)

There was a maze made from hay bales.

And ofcourse, there was a maze in the corn field.

There were toy tractors to drive,

and lots of tires around the track to jump and balance on.

There was a web of ropes to work your way through.

(I think we might have to put one of these in the backyard for awhile.)

We rode in a wagon pulled by a tractor.

In the "outback" we used slingshots to send small pumpkins flying into a pond.

I've been told we need to get one of those slingshots too.

We practiced swinging a lasso.

There were lots of opportunities for photo ops.

However, the highlight of our adventure was by far, the water boat. I tried to convince Allan that we need one in our yard. He isn't 100% on board yet, but isn't this just amazing? (I couldn't choose just one photo, so you have a bunch to look at! ) With the heat, we visited the boat multiple time to cool off and play!

So, does anyone know where I can find a rowboat in decent condition for little or no money???
