We interrupt the recap of our Land That We Love Tour to record the real time happenings this past weekend. This year the annual trip to the Corn Maze was modified as was our annual hunting weekend. Addy took over for Katie’s job of getting everyone through the maze. Katie and Baba were not able to join the maze fun this year.
Laura was in Colville and took beautiful photos of this annual event.
Our beautiful daughters-in-law.
We took a quick trip to the western side of the Cascade mountain range and missed out on the Corn Maze this year. It was a strange year with interruptions to our annual hunting weekend and family festivities.
We enjoyed dinner on Friday evening with our son on the West side of the Cascades.
On Saturday evening we enjoyed Laura’s homecoming from Colville with a Thai meal delivered to their door and time also with our daughter and son-in-law. We left early Sunday morning from Bothell to return to Colville. The winds were forceful and scary going over Snoqualmie Pass early on Sunday Morning. When we were on the east side of the Cascades we decided to get off the freeway and enjoy some breakfast in Ellensburg.
We tried The Wild Huckleberry in historic downtown Ellensburg. Delicious. We’ll stop by on future trips.
We would like to explore the town of Ellensburg more fully in good walking weather sometime in the future. After Ellensburg our trip the rest of the way home was calm and easy with light rain and light wind.
We have a busy week ahead. Hope you all have a good one!
Thank you to Laura who always remembers the group shot selfie and for taking the next couple photos in the midst.
Me and my favorite eighteen month old. He’s my little guy and I love him so.
Giving a hug to his gramps. Like his daddy when he was little, Jaymison, likes to have his hands full.
Saturday catch up with these photos before I forget them on this last day of October 2020. We have Halloween, a full moon and then before we go to bed we’ll need to turn our clocks back one hour. In the country we have no chance of trick or treaters except for our little grands who will stop by with their parents. They have a costume theme this year that is a fun one and I hope to get a photo tonight to share with y’all on Monday.
Take care everyone!
What a difference a week makes. Sunday the 18th of October my brother and his kids enjoyed the maze with me in sunshine and a bit of mud. On Saturday the 24th of October the patch paths were covered in snow. Our car arrived at the Corn Maze location a little after ten and it was closed. After checking on line we saw that they were due to open at eleven. Jamie and the littles arrived a little before 10:30 and the owner of the maze spotted us and came over to open up early for us. We were the only group on the maze from start to finish. Thank you Colville Corn Maze for a detailed maze experience and for opening early for us!
We never dreamed we’d be trekking through the maze in snow but we were all up for the adventure.
You need a map expert like Katie to make it through with ease and we were so happy she was on point since we were trekking through the snow in below freezing temperatures.
Warning: This is a photo loaded post!
Katie led us to the #1 stop quick and easy. Onward and upward we go.
We supported the Corn Maze People by buying some of their last pumpkins.
The cutest little pumpkins in the patch!
Do you go to a pumpkin patch this time of year? Do you have a Corn Maze in your town? Our snow is melting and we’ve had a nice stretch of dry weather. Very cold starts to the day with warming by mid afternoon. Slow but sure progress on the shop.
On Sunday after church and lunch we decided the Corn Maze would be a fun adventure with my brother and his kids. Their dear mom was on an adventure of her own for a couple days.
This is not an easy maze and we were scratching our heads for a while until we finally figured out the map.
There were 8 markers and strange but true we ended up finding #8 first and worked our way backwards with some zig zags thrown in.
Me and my brother 2020!
I’m adding this quote from part of the devotional Drawing Near by John MacArthur: Living a Joyous Life…
“God’s Word is a lamp to your feet and a light to your path (Psalm 119:105). It guides you through the difficult mazes of life and gives your life eternal significance. Don’t live simply for your own pleasures. Your life has a high and holy purpose, and each day can be filled with joy as you see that purpose unfold.”
Yesterday the concrete guys showed up bright and early and the first cement mixer arrived at 7:45 AM. What a busy day. The Concrete is setting and we even managed to get some handprints in, too. Photos to follow soon. Have a great Tuesday!
