31 Days {Day 26} : A Haunted Maze

I love being intentional about embracing Fall.  It is a beautiful season of colors, gatherings, and crisp days.  I do not love all of the ghoulishness of Halloween.  It is not my favorite holiday.

It is our month of intentional adventures, and we are not all that interested in pursuing scary halloween-y adventures.

But when our local corn maze made the national news . . .

We decided to not just go to the corn maze, like we have done the past few years . . .

We went to the “Haunted Corn Maze

The line was long, filled with teenagers texting, but once you made it through the first line there was an opportunity to bounce while you waited, so we took advantage of that . . .

We headed off into the field . . .

I was not sure why on earth I was doing this.  I was not scared . . . it was clear that there were various mannequins and real people scattered throughout the corn on the ready to jump out at me or surprise us . . .

There was a part of me that wanted to see Ben and Andrew’s reactions.  My husband and I went through a haunted house our first October dating . . . Andrew hit a guy that jumped out at us.  I definitely did not want a replay of that.

It was an odd adventure.  And after a couple of photos in the maze a creepy lady followed us to tell us no more pictures . . .

But here is the thing . . . I laughed.  We laughed.  A lot.  The path wound into the woods and past all kinds of characters.  And it was a funny thing that these people were waiting to jump out at us and we were waiting to be jumped at.  It is an odd holiday, Halloween.

And I don’t know that I need to do a haunted maze again, but I am grateful for the adventuring and the laughing . . .
