Attempting the Edmonton Corn Maze

Every year we try to head out to the Edmonton Corn Maze for an afternoon of corn, animals, and other assorted fun. This had to be the earliest we have ever made it out to the maze, and with friends in tow, we went out to conquer it. 

What we knew going in was that there were some pretty dark clouds circling us, but we decided to chance it anyways and see how much we could get done before the weather got worse. Besides, once you mention corn maze to Bug, there is no chance of changing her mind. She was so excited and continually boosted about how much she loved the corn maze. 
Wilbur! Or Babe! 
We only walked about three minutes in the corn maze before the rain started to fall. We waited a moment to see if it got any worse, and yes, yes it did. So we ran out of the corn maze and found shelter in a beautiful wooden barn. Husband grabbed coffee and kettle corn and we decided to make a picnic out of the rain - hoping that we could wait it out. The thunder and lighting show was amazing from our wooden shelter. Unfortunately, the storm only got worse and we decided that we would have to attempt the corn maze another day.

Even though it wasn't the afternoon that we had planned for, we still had a lovely time. Bug loved looking at all of the animals. She enjoyed bouncing on the trampoline and she loved climbing the hay bales. Later on during her nap time, Bug exclaimed how much fun she had the corn maze. That made me smile so big, it's funny how as an adult it is so easy to get caught up in the disappointment of missing out on something due to weather - yet to a three year old, it was all part of the adventure. She loved her afternoon, and hearing her say so made me love this day even more. Storm and all.

We will be back for sure. Besides, we have to get our yearly photo!
