Family Outing

I just love October and all the fun festivities! Yesterday we went to Black Island Farms. A while ago my friend April posted a blog about this place and ever since then I have wanted to go.
The first thing we did when we got there was attempt the corn maze. They handed out maps of the mazes. So, my brothers took on the responsibility of finding our way through the maze. Now, I have never been to a corn maze and have always wanted to try one. We didn't get lost but had fun trying to jump out of the corn stalks to scare one another.

At Black Island Farms they have these giant slides made of hay stacks. They were too fun. Aleecia thought it was fun to push grandma and grandpa down the slide. She loved the big tunnel slide and kept changing the potato sack every time she went down. Once we finally pulled her away from the slide she shot a few paint balls and rode the cow train a hundred times.
We went on a "hay less" hay ride out to the pumpkin patch and picked out our own pumpkins. Aleecia couldn't decide which pumpkin she wanted. She said there was too many to pick from. David picked one that had green vain like lines on it cause he wanted to be different. He named his pumpkin "varicose". And my brother named his "mini me".
After a fun field day at Black Island Farms we went to my parents ward Halloween Party. They went all out! They had trick or treating for the kids, a spook alley, face painting, bean bag toss, fish pond, donut on a string, and a cake walk. For those of you who don't know what a cake walk is like myself. It is like musical chairs. When the music stops they draw out a number and if you are standing on that number you get to pick out a cake. Mia and Aleecia both won a cake. It was optional to dress up so my parents went as a Deer hunter and a Deer. Ben, David, and I both pretended to not know our dad.

Ha ha I like your parents already just from that picture. Wasnt that kettle corn awesome? I'm glad you guys had fun there but seriously what was not to like. You need to make your pictures on here enlargable so I can see the looks on your faces better going down the slide. That place is a keeper for sure and so is Mia
