Autumn Fun

Every year our family goes to a corn maze in October.  We've gone to the same place almost every year for the past 6 or 7 years.  You can check it out here:

So today was the day, we had teams of two, Don and me vs. our kids and their boy/girlfriends.  All week they predicted rain for today, but we only had two brief showers that didn't dampen anyone's spirits.  Here's the energetic group before we entered the maze:

Don and I (the old folks!) always come in last, but not today.  We thought we were first, because when we finished, none of the other teams were waiting.  But it turns out that Jordan and Nicole (far left) finished it in record time, and went back in to get some of the bonus checkpoints.  They actually made second place on the record board posted in the barn!  And we came in second!  Not bad for the oldsters of the group.
Then we found our perfect pumpkins in the pumpkin patch before coming home for stuffed pizza!  A great day!
Happy fall, everyone!
