The only thing I hadn't considered when we pack up the family for the trip was that nearly everyone in a three state area would decide to go have some fall fun on the same day. Did I mention there is but one street leading into the park. Let's just say that traffic was horrific. Had we not have brought along a friend, I would have bribed my family into turning around and going back home. We did humor ourselves with the fact that they advertised slow traffic ahead at about forty five minutes into our stop and go traffic wait.
Mr C and his friend had a good time with the youth, but determined that a corn maze in the middle of a drought isn't all it's cracked up to be! Guess the corn really wasn't as high as an elephants eye this year!
The girls enjoyed a few slides, rides and treats too. However, they quickly decided that bees really like slush syrup and that next time they will pass on the "make your own Slurpee's"
We had a great day! We got to spend time with each other, hang with some friends and soak up some great fall weather, but next time I'd rather do that walking through an apple orchard or going to a state park and just experiencing nature without all the commercialism and crowds.
