Maize

How cool is this? My brother Jonathan shared this satellite image of our family’s corn maze.  It was only our second year with a corn maze after many years of mazes with great big hay bales.  The hay maze is smaller and fun for younger kids, but the corn maze was more difficult.  It was common for families to spend up to an hour in it! Jonathan loves designing the maze and the weather this year was just perfect for it so everyone was really happy with how it turned out.

Fall on the Farm

Sunday Stroll

Fall on the farm is in full swing.  I’m not working there this year (at least I haven’t yet), since I’m pretty busy with school and am trying to get more rest, since I’ve found being pregnant to be pretty tiring.  Anyway, I did get to stop by yesterday and visit with my friend Sasha, who worked for us in high school.  She’s here visiting from California and had to stop by to visit her farm family.  I took these pictures as I walked around with her.

Families are picking out the perfect pumpkins.  I can’t wait to take the token pumpkin patch photo with my baby next fall!

Hayrides are running around the farm.  Well, it poured today so there were no rides, but yesterday they were a bit hit.

Our newest attraction is the corn maze.  My brother spent countless hours designing it over the spring, the corn was planted a few times as June’s rains washed it out, and finally it’s grown into this great maze.

Annabelle and Isabelle are the star attractions in the petting zoo.  Look how big the baby has gotten since June!

What does fall look like in your neck of the woods?
