There was a day last week (before the heat index was above 100) that the girls and I were out for an off-road walk in the Bob Stroller around our property. It’s a fact that our homestead is a quaint island in an ocean of corn and soybeans.
And what native Iowan child doesn’t go exploring in the cornfields?
I parked the stroller and coaxed the girls into the dense forest of cornstalks. They weren’t sure at first.
But soon they were playing and exploring… and I was wishing I had my nice camera with me. Iphone pics are the new DSLR…k?
Did you know that the base of cornstalks look like this?
This next pic could totally be on the cover of a horror movie… what’s up with Hollywood using children to make their movies even more sinister? EW. My girl is too cute for that.
Sometimes, when you live far from civilization, you have to make your own fun. Playing in cornfields seems so wholesome and… non-2013. I love that my girls can experience childhood like this. I hope that they will be adventure-seekers, and have wild imaginations.
