So, how to spend the evening kid free? Hmmm, so many options. Romantic dinner? Quiet night outdoors listening to bands play? Candelight and color-changing waterfalls?
Nah. Nope. And Not a chance.
Lets go for something memorable and not so "everyday." I decided to plan the evening and surprise hubs.
HIM: Where are we going?
ME: I told you, surprise.
ME: Fine. Wear comfy clothes. And bring a flashlight.
HIM: Hell no! You aren't bringing me on one of your ghost hunts!
ME: Why does everything requiring a flashlight mean a ghost hunt to you? *sigh*
So, we drove 30miles out of the city, at night, to this:
|Largest Corn Maze in CA|
|Not so glowy in the light, but trust me-the glow was there!|
So we totally made it to the end (it was like miles long!) and it was pitch black in the middle of nowhere, so good thing I really did bring a flashlight. The Haunted part was fun but so, so scary. It's like you know it will be, but you have no idea when it will happen or what exactly. So imagine people popping out of the huge cornstalks in the dark. At you. Yeah--like killer clowns and wolfmen and some too horrible to even think about.
And for anyone that has seen The Hills Have Eyes? OMIGosh. The mutant was there. And he followed us, dragging his shovel, then picking up his pace. I was practically running, pulling hubs along. And Jason was there. With a real chainsaw. And you could smell the gas from it and it freaked me out and I screamed at the top of my lungs and my heart almost beat right out of my chest and...I...was...outta...breathe.
We took pics by the main Haunt site and Jason crept up on us and did a sneak attack-chainsaw and all! Even hubby screamed at that. So, I totally made Mr. Hockey Mask get in the pic. Take THAT, Jason!
And we have pictures to remember the day, even though it left a last impression with us. Now, wasn't that better than a candlelight dinner?
|Hubby: Jason ain't got nothing on me! I have my glow axe!|
