Edmonton Corn Maze 2011

The last hot day of the year was on Saturday. I thought we should spend it outside, so we decided to go to the Edmonton Corn Maze. Adults cost $10 each, kids 6-12 are $8, and kids 5 and under are free. And if you "like" the Edmonton Corn Maze on facebook, you can get $2 off coupons. So it only cost us $22 to go. And it was definitely worth the money.

They usually have sunflowers outlining the maze, and by the time we got there this year, they were a little dead. Except for one. Go little buddy!

They have many things to do besides the maze. They have some farm animals you can feed and pet. My girls loved petting and looking at the animals.

They also have a huge pile of hay you can climb and jump on.

This year, they also had this huge jumping pillow. It was the highlight of the place for the girls. I went and jumped up too. It was really fun. Can you find Hannah in this first picture?

They also have a little dirt track that you can ride bikes on. The girls loved it.

They also have this little train thing called the Corn Cob express, but we didn't go on it. I just made Hannah pose for this picture.

Now it was time for the maze.

And this is what it looked like from above this year.

The girls had fun trying to figure out which way to go in the maze.

And Hannah kept picking up corn off the ground and peeling it.

When we were halfway through the maze, there is an option to exit or go on to the second half. Hannah and I decided to stop and go back to the jumping pillow. And Joe and Taylor ran on to finish the maze.

And she let me take some pictures of her!

When Joe and Taylor got back the girls got some strawberry ice cream.

We got there at about noon and left a little after 3pm. When we got there, there was no line up to pay, and when we left, there was about 50 people waiting to pay! It was a busy day there. So if you do decide to go on a Saturday, go earlier than later! I am planning on going back before the weather gets too cold.

I love the Corn Maze! They've added some new stuff since we lived there, they didn't have that jumping thing before, that looks so fun! Hannah is getting so big, she's almost as tall as Taylor!

That looks like so much fun! How long has this been happening and how did I not know of it when we lived there! P.S. That pillow thing would be SO FUN when it got wet. Ignore the warning.

Sarah, that looks like so much fun! Pretty similar to the Lacombe one. Lots of the same stuff but it looks like the Edmonton one is a bit cheaper (unless your inlaws that already live in Lacombe cover your costs! Tee hee!). Anywho, if you decide to go again, call me! That looks awesome!

I always intended on going to the Corn Maze, but never did it. That looks SO cool! Is that pillow thing feel like a trampoline? Hannah is looking older for sure! And you really need to teach me how to braid. Taylor's braids are perfect. Maybe you could bring some of the strawberry ice cream to the lesson? Mmmmm...what a fun summer day.

So fun!!! It does look like the Lacombe one, but it makes me miss the seasons. It just looks like the summer is leaving and fall is on its way (or should I say winter). But is it just me or do your girls look like twins? so cute!
