Day: Saturday, 9/17/11
Planned By: Dani
So before you get excited for this entry.. this date was a bust. I had planned to have a picnic in the park followed by wondering through a corn maze. I've always wanted to go through a real corn maze so I looked up a corn maze near us. I wanted to go to the Lake Metroparks Farm Park, but of course they had some festival going on and it was closed to general visitors. We didn't want to pay for this festival so I looked up another place.
Here was the plan: get Subway meals and eat at the Chapin Forest Reservation in Kirtland, OH. Then go to the Patterson Farm Market for the corn maze.
We got our food. Adam got a Buffalo Chicken sub, with baked BBQ chips and a powerade. I got a tuna sub with an apple and sprite. Adam was in charge of the directions to the Chapin Forest Reservation. He got confused with the directions and took us straight to the Patterson Farm Market. We walked around the place and found a bench to eat our lunch on. The bench had a great view of the lake and surrounding trees. There were quite a few people at this place. We really enjoyed seeing the puppies with their owners. It was a very family-friendly place.
So we still hadn't found the corn maze. We walked around the entire place again to try to find it. It was no where to be found. There were 2 play grounds for children but no corn maze. We did see some apple trees though. We were very irritated that there was no corn maze or anything else to do so we left.
When we got home I looked up the website again, and realized we had gone to the wrong place. They had three different addresses on the website and apparently I didn't notice any difference. We decided not to go back out to the correct place because it was probably going to be a bunch of children like at the first place and we didn't really want to deal with that. Maybe we'll find a better corn maze later on to go to!
Subway: 7/10 - just a sub.
Chapin Forest Reservation: ?/10 - never made it there.
Patterson Farm Market: 3/10 - good for a family but nothing really to do for young adults.
Hopefully next week will be better! :)
*sorry for the crappy quality on the pictures this week, my camera is apparently dying. :(
