A[maize]zing!

Over last weekend, my sister and I got elected to take a party of middle school girls to our local Corn Maize. For you non-Southerners, a Corn Maize is basically strategically grown corn patterned in cool shapes that form a huge maze for people to get lost in during the fall season. One of those things you just have to experience to really understand. Our Maize piles on the festive fun with a pumpkin patch, hay ride, petting zoo and some finger lickin yummy roasted corn.  photo light2_zps7dc50593.jpg Celebrating 75 years, the theme this year was just too precious with the Wizard of Oz! Creative geniuses, those game makers... I mean maze makers (hunger games, anyone?) While the band of middle schoolers ran rampant in the corn, Sissykins and I entertained SammySue and bonded with all the farm yard friends.  photo corn4_zps9cc8e2bc.jpg  photo corn8_zps2a190146.jpg  photo corn16_zps6946a711.jpg I might have gotten a bit carried away playing photographer in the BREEZY FALL WEATHER surrounded by Southern style hospitality.

Can we please install one of these in every future house we have?  photo corn14_zpsa29ef6d9.jpg  photo corn13_zpsebba3f68.jpg I'm forever a sucker of cuddly animals, nevermind the smell or poop on their tushies. Check out this studly goat, just begging for me to devote my wellbeing to his modeling career. Tempting offer, lil guy.  photo sispic_zpsce276ff9.jpg  photo corn9_zpsdf4115f2.jpg Overall, we had a smashingly swell time! Our middle school munchkins caused a total riot with their constant giggling, running through the corn and photobombing right and left. But hey, who can blame em. Goodness knows I was twice as goofy and annoying as those cuties when I was their age... or potentially I still might be. Alas. Gotta love Texas for unique traditions.

    1. Thanks thanks. I do the best I can in lighting a fall festive fire under others, so that they devote hours to pumpkin patches and maizes. Those chandeliers literally made my heart melt. So much coveting.
