artemis and friend capably made their way through the massive corn maze while steve and ander indulged in kettle corn and lemonade and i visited the animal pens and
|as we had hoped, samson was there. |
ander happily rode him and fed him a carrot afterwards.

|artemis & friend dabbin' it up|
|ander & steve in action poses|
|a biiiiiiiiig pumpkin|
|we drove a few minutes farther, up into lucketts, to search for the giant metal chicken.|
no chicken, but these were kinda cute.
