1. If given a choice of trivia questions to "guide" you through the maze, make sure at least one of you chooses the Tiny Tots questions. Even if there is nary a tiny tot in your party. The questions are hard and good luck trying to google something in the middle of a corn maze.
2. "Children of the Corn" references are not funny when you're lost in a corn maze.
3. "We'll eat as soon as we bust through this corn maze, kids!" Motivating for the first 10 minutes. Forty-five minutes into the corn maze, those are fightin' words.
4. Snapping pictures of the corn against the perfect autumn sky should be reserved for that triumphant moment when you finally find your way out of the corn maze. Failure to heed this advice puts both you and your camera at risk for bodily harm from less understanding family members. Trust me, there will be no shortage of corn to photograph.
I took this shot right before the vultures started circling.
5. When spirits and blood sugar levels are getting low, remind your spouse of the more endearing name a friend's toddler has for the attraction: the "porn maze."
6. Follow this guy. Sure, there are still things he can't find in his own house even after living in it 4 years, but the guy can get you around a corn maze. If I headed up this dog and pony show we'd still be wandering around out there.
All kidding aside, the corn maze was just one part of a fun morning we spent out at Beasley's Orchard in Danville, Indiana. It was the perfect fall morning to hang out with the family in the orchard and the pumpkin patch. Have you been to an apple orchard or a pumpkin patch yet? Go while you still can – it's just not fall without the sun on your face and some hay on your backside. And by all means, try the corn maze. Just don't say we didn't warn you.
