My kids look forward to Cornbelly's every year.
Their favorite activity is the slide on the grain sacks. Jodie came with us this year; Suze was ecstatic. She adores her big cousin. She never wanted to lose sight of her or baby boy.
The kids took a try at rolling these giant tubes. It was a bit too much for Syd. It took all their strength to roll it from beginning to end.
This lady was really creepy. She even rocked in her chair.
Suze is always game for anything. She tried her hand at roping a steer. (That is my Diet Coke can in the corner.)
My favorite thing about Cornbelly's is all of the photo opportunities. I know the kids get so sick of me asking to take their picture. Most of the time they cooperate. Eric is usually the first to rebel.
Susan, Syd and Eric are obsessed with this sweet boy. They love to touch, hug and kiss; much to the chagrin of his first time mother.
I can tell that Jodie tries really hard to be patient with my three when they maul her precious boy with love.
Big Wheels, Big Attitude!
Suze begged me to do the corn maze. I hate getting stuck in the corn maze. It's hot and Syd always complains that her legs hurt and she is thirsty. Suze usually has a sixth sense about the maze. She nearly always finds our way out, but not this year. We gave up after half an hour and began cutting our way through the corn stalks, anxious to find the exit. We came out the entrance!
It was a warm day and after a trip through the corn maze nothing quenches your thirst like a big snow cone. Interesting side note. We bought the snow cones in a trailer set up with all the fixings. You put on your own flavors, which is great, but the dispensers were covered with two to three dozen bees. The salesperson assured us they were not hostile. I barely kept my composure as I helped all three douse the ice with flavoring; dozens of bees swirling around your hand.
After five fun, very warm, sticky hours I called it quits. Syd was ready for more action, but Mom wins.
Goodbye Cornbelly's for another year.
