And can you believe that despite such a fun, photographable day, I FORGOT my camera! Not only that, I also left my phone in the car, so I didn't have anything to document our activities! Lesson learned, always remember the camera!

Yesterday our Sunday school class went to a corn maze/farm with kid's activities. John and I have gone to these before, but this was our first as parents, and I've gotta say, they're way more fun when you have a child old enough to participate. Hannah Grace slept the first half hour or so we were there, but we spent a good chunk of that time waiting on everyone, collecting money (for the group discount), and going through a makeshift farm that let you plant seeds and pick cotton. Once Hannah Grace woke up, we took her to see the animals, let her run around a hay-filled barn loft, play in a corn box (same idea as a sand box, but with corn kernels), and go down a giant slide (at least twenty feet, if not longer) several times. We also went through the corn maze and went on a "hayride". I put it in quotations because the trailer we were on didn't actually have any hay on it; oh well. Somehow all of that took three hours, and we decided to leave because both Hannah Grace and I were getting tired. After we got home, John put Hannah Grace down and she fell asleep almost immediately. After tinkering on my laptop for a few minutes, I decided to lay down, too (at this time it was almost 5pm), and didn't wake up for two hours! Hannah Grace had to be woken up, and I was afraid she wouldn't sleep very well that night. Thankfully after dinner (we definitely went out), she only stayed up until 9:15 and then slept until 7:15! Usually she sleeps eleven hours, but I was expecting much worse since she took a two hour nap right before bedtime.
