Pumpkin Patch Horror

“Hey look, a cornfield, lets go,” I exclaimed, while thinking in the back of my mind, this is exactly how every horror story starts. Regardless, we proceeded, telling myself hah, it won’t happen to us.

Scared daddy

First into the maze, despite the horrifying screams (children laughing) echoing down the false routes. Stepping over skeletons of previous adventurers who had given up hope in search of riches, we pushed forward. Then after wandering for hours I started to grow weak and hungry, on the verge of giving up all hope, I screamed WHY? WHY? WHY? did we enter. Out of nowhere, Orion my son, grabbed my wrist and pulled me to safety.

My hero Orion

Gathering ourselves and doing inventory, we made a new plan and headed out. This time towards a covered bridge (another horror story beginning) that could quite possibly lead us to safety. As quick as we began we found ourselves running through a snake pit, crawling over a giant spider web and into the most unexpected geological formation known, a giant corn pit. Despite my panicked flailing I tried to remember if I was supposed to swim forward or do backstrokes. Regardless, it did not matter at this point, I was sinking fast in the corn pit (only adult in the pit).

Heeeeeelp me

Despite the evidence here showing my own children covering me with kernels of corn, I regained my composure. Crawling over the bales of hay we could see the bridge (please no headless horseman) and safety was within reach. And there she was with a big smile, Ami (wife, mommy, dragon slayer) guiding us in with her open arms.

Smiles for everyone.

Good times at Covered Bridge Ranch, where good times,adventures and horror takes are waiting.

Happily married to an absolute dream come true woman, Ami. Who has blessed me with two absolute dream come true children, Orion and Cassi. Now my goal everyday is to do life with my children. Whether I go shopping or in the kitchen cooking, my children will be right there with me. Talking through my actions, involving them in decision making and understanding options available. Pitching tents, trails to hike and adventures to come, they will be my side.
