Today we went to a fall festival at a local farm. Jordan and I had fun doing the corn maze together. For awhile, he was very sure about which paths to take, and he kept pointing the way. After reaching yet another fork in the path that looked just like the last one, he said, “Maybe I lie.” We had a little laugh, and I told him to try walking toward the sun, so we could avoid going in circles.
It was hot and sunny, so we only reached about 5 checkpoints before he decided to call it quits. After we wound our way back, we found a nice shady spot to wait for the others to return.
After the corn maze, we went on a hay ride to the pumpkin patch. Jordan wanted to find the tallest pumpkin in the field. His brother helped him find the best one. It was so big that Jordan couldn’t carry it himself. His brother had to hoist it on his shoulder and carry it back to our ride.
Jordan was a bit upset that he couldn’t hold his giant pumpkin on his lap for the ride back, but he perked up once we got to the store. He found a little rubber duck with a mustache, which he promptly named after his favorite PE teacher.
As we walked back to the car, he put his arm around my shoulder and said, “That was fun, Mommy.”
