Pierce wanted to do the corn maze first. The lines to get the maps were long (actually, the lines everywhere were long) so I had this
Then Pierce wanted to do the cow train. I had the lofty idea that the three boys could ride the train while I snapped pictures. This didn't work out, as Cort and Reid started screaming as soon as I got them in the seats. So I climbed into the tiny cow train barrel and the twins piled on top of me. Have you ever sat in one of those barrels? They are not exactly spacious. But we survived, and I even managed to snap a picture of Pierce, who sat in the barrel in front of us:
Of course immediately afterwards the twins wanted to go again. But we settled for tire swings instead:
And tire climbing. This is one of my favorite pictures of all 3 boys from the past year -
After that, it was on to climbing spiderwebs. We had to evacuate after Pierce, caught up in his role of spider, told a little girl he was going to sting her and I quickly whisked him away before he went in for the bite.
The mini corn maze is one of the favorite parts of the pumpkin patch. It's short and designed for small kids. Two years ago, Pierce ran through it over and over again. This year, Reid was Pierce reincarnated. I caught him making the run from one side to the next, and with the rays of the setting sun on him he kind of looks like a little glowing corn ghost, doesn't he?
The corn crib - always a good place to get corn into tiny crevices for the next two weeks or so...
And finally the jumping pillow. Pierce is front and center. He didn't stay on for his full 10 minutes because he was focused on getting some kettle corn. The line for the kettle corn took 30 minutes. As you might imagine, that did me in.
