Cornucopia Farms

About a week ago I was checking out our calendar for the upcoming month and realized we didn't have a free Saturday until the week before Halloween.  I didn't want to take the chance that something would come up or deal with crowds so we headed up to Cornucopia Farms for some fall fun this morning. Or rather fall fun, in the fall, but still summer weather. :)

This place is between Scottsburg and Salem.  I wanted to go for more of a smaller farm and less crowds.  It wasn't any cheaper to get into their family fun area than it is Huber's, but they had just as much to do.  
They would have been happy had the slides been it. We could have stayed at the slides for an hour and called it a day.

Of course they would have missed the bales of hay. Cameron was cracking me up, he was so timid and wouldn't jump around, yet he will jump from a chair in my mom's living room over to her couch and back.  

(some of my pictures are clear, taken from our camera, and some are terrible, taken from my phone.  That's all about to change because our iPhone 6's are on their way)

Okay, back to the topic.

I need to get me one of these in my backyard. Every time we go to one of the places that has a box of corn kernels, they love it!!

Cameron loved this thing too. You pumped the water to make the ducks float down the tube. Really I think Cameron just wanted to play in the water but he did keep asking to go back and do it.

"Cows" to milk and "horses" to ride.

Totally see Jimmy Chitwood practicing on this goal.  #Hoosiers

Of course anytime we go to a place like this we must take posed, picture perfect family photos. You know the ones everyone is screaming and yelling then we stop and smile just in time to smile and take the picture.  I'm only half kidding :)

We took this gem home with us.

Probably my favorite part of the trip was the soy bean maze.  They have both that and a corn maze.  We had already been there a while, Cameron was getting tired, and it was hot. We opted for the one that we could actually see over the crop.  

They had 6 hidden signs all over the maze and we had to check off our card once we found them.  They had pens attached to each sign, now you could totally cheat if you had a pen of your own, but we didn't.  We found all 6!  Now of course we were taller than the soybeans, but the signs were not.  They were hidden pretty well and deep within the maze.

Cooper was a champ and led most of the way.  I ended up carrying Cameron toward the end, so yeah, totally glad we did this and not the corn maze.  Steve and I did a haunted corn maze the first year we were married, so much fun!!!

Such a great day, 5 more school days!!!

Looks like a fun day! I've never seen anyone have a bean field maze! But yes it's definitely easier to navigate than the corn! :)
