The Field Of Screams

Tonight we had a "date night". We went to Fender's Farm with our good friends, Kevin and Christy Hite. Adults only! No kids tonight! We wanted to go to the Haunted Corn Maze and Barn and didn't think the kids were quite big enough to handle it yet. Ian really wanted to go, but we attempted the Haunted Corn Maze last year, and he almost lost it. . . Maybe next year. . .But the kids had a great time with Mamaw and Papaw, and they don't spend near as much time with them as they used to due to James and I working the way we do. So the grandparents were glad to have them for a little while.

We had a great time. I love to spend time with my family, but it is so good just to spend some quality time with James. We need to do this more often than we do. And spending time with such special friends was great too!

While we were waiting for it to get dark for the scaring to begin, we decided to play on the playground. That is what you do--isn't it? Play on the playground when you Don't have your kids with you. . .We had a blast just laughing at each other climbing on the hay bales, and watching each other fly off of those crazy slides!! Hilarious. Kevin said he went down this VERY fast slide last year with Cade on his lap and they came out very fast and landed on their bottoms. . .The reason you don't see a picture of Kevin coming off of the slide : )Christy and I even had this little boy show us how easy it was to jump off of the VERY high hay bales(the one in the striped sweater in the picture). . .Needless to say, I didn't jump. I took a few pics before it got dark, and then the good ole' camera went back to Kevin's truck. Wouldn't want any monsters to knock my camera to the ground. . .

For those of you who know me, you know that I scare easily. ; ) So going to a "haunted"anything with me, is fun for all who are in attendance. Hee hee. . . I love to just "get scared" and scream! Too much fun! We got the Haunted Package, the Haunted Barn, and the Field of Screams. . . It was so funny. I laughed so hard that my jaws are still hurting. I held on to a strange man's shirt during the Haunted Barn--he didn't seem to mind. He had his daughter who was probably just 6 years old--and was the bravest child I have ever seen!! But at one point as we were going through the barn, this man was in front of James and I--I couldn't see where I was going. . .and I said "DAD! Where are you?" This strange man said" I am right here!" and then I grabbed on to the back of his shirt again. He sort of led us through the Haunted Barn. . .Too funny! Then when we left the maze we stopped for coffee on the way home. . . Had a great time. . .Can't wait until next year!! We are gonna let our oldest kids go with us. . . Cade may need to wait a few more years, but we are gonna break Ian and Macey in soon!! Happy Fall Ya'll!!! Good night.
