Halloween Traditions

Last night we went to the Moonlight Maze. We have been visiting this corn maze for 6 years. The first time I went, I was pregnant with Mini-me. This year, I find myself in the same delicate condition. Anyway, the maze is huge. Every year, there is a different theme. One year, it was Nascar. Another, it was pirates. This year, the theme was Transformers.

We entered through this big pile of hay. It was long and disorienting. When you came out, you didn't know where you were. Only the sound of the pumpkin cannon could give you a clue. Within the maze, there are several small mazes. Each one has numbered checkpoints to help orient you. Curly and Patch were in charge of the map. It's tricky for several reasons. First, the lines on the map are the paths. Second, people who don't follow the map cut through the corn, creating paths that don't exist on the map. We took one such path near the end and got lost. It freaked Mini-me out. But, once we found a number, we were able to orient ourselves and get out of the maze.

The kids had a great time. We didn't do the entire maze, because doing the whole thing would have equaled about 5 miles or more of walking. We can't wait to go again next year!
