A-Mazed in the Corn Maze!

Rob, Tom, Craig, "Ted- man in yellow hat"
Have you ever driven past a place for years and kept saying how you'd love to go there? Well, that's what we've done for the last 12 years with a corn maze!  Finally, however, we made it happen and it was so much fun!  - Last Saturday, our friend Craig joined us for  what turned out to be 1 1/2 hours going through 2 corn mazes! 
Ted and Curious George

DIFFERENT MAZES ANNUALLY -   We learned that every year, this local corn field does themed mazes. This year it was based on the 75th year of the children's character Curious George (the monkey) and his friend Ted, the man in the yellow hat.

MAZE MAPS - They provide a map of both mazes. The first maze took about 20 minutes. The second maze was so long and twisting that it took about an hour!

OUR TASKS - Tom led us through and read the map superbly, Craig answered all the questions about Curious George that gave clues, and I (Rob) took pictures and held the orange "help" flag if we got lost (which we didn't).

FLAG IT FOR RESCUES - For those who worry about getting lost, they give every party a flag that can be held over the 8 foot corn stalks and a guy in a watch tower (in the center of the maze) tells you how to get out!

  We highly recommend Corn Mazes!! Now, we can't wait to do it next year!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
