Sunday there was an adventure to Sauvie Island, to Kruger Farms.
We had a goal!
The corn maze awaited, corn to nibble, caramel apples to imbibe, and pumpkins to find.
Well as you see there were flowers too.
You know I wouldn't miss an opportunity to photograph flowers.
All I could get was silly faces among the pumpkins.
He was imagining the silly faces on the pumpkins he was going to take home.
There was the maker of caramel apples to watch.
Some of the delights waiting to go home with us.
I don't think I have had a caramel apple since my own children were little.
With loose teeth this was a challenge,
but he persevered;
afterall, it was good roasted corn from the field.
He said it made all his teeth feel loose.
Now for me the adventure was trying to keep up
and find one 7 year old in the corn maze.
He and I entered the maze and he told me to run.
Sorry, but I don't run anymore.
He would run ahead, then stop and wait for me.
Well needless to say I found out later that he was
going out and telling the lady at the entrance that
he had lost his grandma in the maze.
It was all kind of funny and we did have fun.
We found a few zombies, but came home with pumpkins.
For a few hours it was fun to play at being a child.
