The Havre Blue Ponies invited Riley's team to play under the lights on Friday night. The game was scheduled to be played at the baseball park and the town prepared the field, tested the lights and were ready to host. However, the power company turned off the power to the lights and no one was notified. We had a couple of options, pull cars around the field to light it up or call the superintedent of schools to get permission to use the highschool field. With luck, the superintendent said yes so across town we drove to a real football field.
When we got there, the boys were so excited and amazed by the size and the lights.
Before the game, the boys lined up in the tunnel and got a little pepped up by the coach. One of the coaches told the boys that this is a special deal playing under the lights on a real football field so take it all in enjoy and go show them what you have.
We decided to take the boys out to the Corn Maize for a fun family activity. It started out fun and as we got to the Maze and moving further into it war broke out. It started with small individual kernels of corn being thrown at the little boys and before you know it corn cob parts are flying through the field. At one point I look up and see Riley running through the field as corn cobs are launched. It looked like a scene out of the Hunger Game. This continued for 30 minutes.
This was the scene before it got crazy.

The Russian, Daniil, taking pictures to send to his Russian friends I am sure.

Corn Ball V-ball. This ball seemed to attract itself to Taylor. She got hit quite a few times.
Every one had a great time and lots of memories to laugh about.
