After church today Mom and Dad took us to Trunnel’s farm for one of their fall festivals. There were small mazes, a corn maze, and a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch, and a long slide, but the highlight of the trip for the boys was the small structure that was filled 1 1/2 feet deep with corn to play in. Their first jump in buried them to their ankles in corn and the proceeded to dig and burrow and bury themselves. A slide came out of the house to the ground outside. One of the boys suggested it would be more fun if you slid into the corn. This was confirmed by Gabriel who landed with a bump on the hard ground and was brought to tears.
