We get lost in Queens in a lot. The layout of the streets just don't make sense to us yet. But yesterday, when we went to Queens, we got lost on purpose.
Andrew's maze phase is back in full force and this weekend we met Tess and friends at a 3 acre corn maze at the Queens Farm Museum. I had printed out an areal photo of the maze a few days before our outing, and even though Andrew swore he had found the best path to take, we still managed to get pretty lost.
All throughout the maze there were mailboxes with clues and pieces of the maze to collect.
And if you got really lost, there were these tubes to talk in with folks on standby to give you more clues. Andrew got to one of these tubes and said in it, "Hi! I'm Andrew!" The tubes weren't terribly helpful, but they were a lot of fun.
And an hour and a half later, after we finally found our way out, we added our names to the board of victors.
Then we relaxed on the grass for a while.
It was a great day and a great maze and it left us all exhausted. If you are thinking of doing a corn maze this year I have a few helpful tips. Bring snacks and water. Go to the bathroom before entering the maze. And don't follow Isaac. We ended up following Isaac a lot, mostly so we wouldn't lose him, but he's not terribly good at corn mazes.
