Field Trip to the Corn Maze

On Friday, the AM and PM Kindergarten classes at Walden took a trip to the Hee Haw's corn maze in Pleasant Grove. Since it was roughly 1/4 mile from work, I joined them for the excursion and had a super-fun time hanging out with Steve and Ben. In fact, there were so many chaperones that we were only responsible for taking care of Ben!

Even with (or maybe because of) Ben's direction in the corn maze we made it through in record time, learning fascinating facts about corn along the way. We may look confused in the photo, but we made it through in fine form!
It was a beautiful autumn morning in Utah, and we enjoyed the cool air and warm sun and beautiful views of Mt. Timpanogos peeking out of the clouds, seen through gaps in the corn. It's supposed to snow this weekend - autumn in Utah is so stinking short! But I can't complain, colder temps means that ski season is coming soon!

The best part of the whole excursion was the giant slide - it was awesome! We got to the farm first thing in the morning and we were the only class there for a while, so there was no line and Ben went down the slide over and over and over again. It was basically kid heaven. Ok, I confess that Mommy and Daddy both took several trips down the slide as well - how could we resist a slide that cool?!?

Ben and Sam would like to blog now. Here's Ben's posting:

And here's Sam's report, compiled from his exceedingly amusing reporter-like questions, mostly asked using the word "experience" with considerable emphasis, such as, "Tell me about your experiences at Hee Haw's" and, "What was your experience on the slide like?" The child never ceases to amaze me. And, yes, he typed this section completely on his own:
hee haw corn maze: ben and mom had a good time at the corn maze. ben said he did the slide 1000000 times before the corn maze. THE END

Dear Buddy,
I would like to go on that slide with you, too. I don't think it would scare you, but it might make you go "xhooo" off the slide really fast
