We Almost Missed It

So, as almost every other family in North America has done this past month, yesterday we finally made it to our local pumpkin patch/corn maze. I actually wasn't sure it was going to happen this year because the weather has been pretty awful on the weekends, and when it has been nice, we've been really busy. But yesterday the sun was shining, we picked Dave up from work a little early, and we headed out.

Sam's class had a field trip to this particular place last Thursday but I didn't take any pictures. I was too busy chaperoning my group of two (busy!) kids, one of whom was Sam. Since he had been here so recently, Sam felt like he needed to guide us around. Here he is heading off into the corn maze which, ironically, his class did not visit. Ha ha ha!
It was a very sunny day so a lot of the pictures are a lit weirdly. Oh well, it's better than all the rain we've had this Fall.
I got a little artistic in the corn maze!
Where did my family go again?!? Oh yes, I see them coming.
Sam did not want to cooperate for a picture so I pretended to bite his nose to get him to laugh. Whatever works...
The farm had a lot of pumpkins, nicely set out by the doors, but Sam wanted to march out to the pumpkin patch to choose one. Just like he did last week. So off we went.
Again, Sam was quite confident in leading us to our destination. We walked the whole length of the patch, but unfortunately, a lot of the pumpkins which were left, were out there for a reason -- soggy sides, caved in tops, smashed bottoms.
We did eventually find one we were happy with and took it home, after we paid for it of course! And Sam and Rachel are holding corn they picked up in the maze.
Last year, Sam and Rachel were not particularly happy to pose in the farm picture and this year they were directing Dave and I where to stand. Thankfully I got to be the farmer and not the pig :)
I'm so glad we took the opportunity to get out there this year, even if was a short visit. Since this place closes after Thursday this was really about our last chance to go. It really was a fun visit.


  1. Looks like ya'll had a lot of fun! I love the last picture. =) I think our only trip this year was with Addi's class. Boo!

  2. Yay! So glad you got to go as a family! It can be so crazy trying to do all the fall festivities and traditions. Looks like your corn maze was an enjoyable experience and not the 2 and a half hour long experience we had. Haha! Yes, you are getting quite artsy with your photography skills. :-)

  3. I super love Herrles! Especially their corn!!

    1. Yes, we say a definite "YAY!!!" for Herrles :)
