It was an amazing walk!!

This post is from my Creatively Fit walk on Saturday. I enjoyed it so much I had to share it with you on my Chalk it up! Blog too:)

Today's walk was creative and CORNY! We went to the Zellwood Corn Maze. Today was the first day of this event. We started in the small maze (the snow flake) and worked our way up to the big one( the sun)! There were activities to do in each maze, word finds and pencil rubbings in the big maze...

Mosaic Monday. See more mosaics here
Also see lots of great mosaics on Creatively Fit

Finger painted fortune telling in the small maze. At different spots in the maze you had to paint one of your fingers the color that was there. The finger you chose for each color was up to you. When we exited the maze we compared our color arrangement with the ones on the chart. Then we read our fortune. Mine was #82 YOU CAN CLOSE A DEAL! Hubby's was: YOU HAVE A KEEN WIT! Matthew: YOU ARE A HIGH ACHIEVER! and Noah: YOU ARE A GREAT STORYTELLER!
Did I mention it was HOT!! There was a bridge in the center of the maze with a man selling ice cold water. We bought two!
There was also a wind tunnel outside the maze. Very cool!!

The large maze was a 4 mile walk(if walked the entire maze) I would say we walked about 3/4 of the maze. The smaller one was about a mile. I was delirious toward the end. I wore jeans, stupid move!

It looked like Fall but it sure didn't feel like it!
I hope you're enjoying some crisp Autumn air today!

Unfortunately, our day ended with Matthew being sick. The poor thing is feeling terrible with a fever. I hope he's feeling better in the morning.

Add on: It's now Sunday going into Monday and he still has a fever. It started late Saturday. We'll give it another day before calling the doctor (unless it gets worse-than I'll call today)

I hope everyone else is feeling healthy and fit today!
