Corn Mazes and Apple Orchards

Sounds like Fall! We were invited to a BBQ at a corn maze/pumpkin patch just outside of town with all the other 3rd/4th year students, interns, residents, and faculty last weekend. It was so much fun!

I've always wanted to do a corn maze. We let the kids guide us through the maze. I would not recommend this strategy. They wore themselves out and then we had to carry them, so we ended up cheated and squeezing between the cornstalks to find our way out. A girl's gotta eat!

There was a bounce house, a wagon ride, lots of good friends to chat with, and Melody was able to make it with her cute boys. Thanks Ben and Laci for the picture! It was a great night.

The other day Sophie and I got to play with Max and Ruby all day. What darling kids. I asked them if they'd like to go to the apple orchard with me to pick apples. They seemed very enthusiastic about the idea so we went for it. Boy am I glad we did! I came home with 1/2 a bushel of delicious apples (mostly Mutsu) for only 10 dollars.

The kids loved helping me pick apples and stuff them in the bag. They also loved the wagon ride. I was just daydreaming about all the delicious apple desserts I had in mind.

I played with the picture of me pulling the kids in the wagon in hopes that it would make me look less scary. I think I made it worse. Oh well, I really just liked that it shows the kids and so much of the orchard.

When we got home, I took this picture of one of my dahlias. Isn't it gorgeous? I just love autumn.

Is it coincidence her kids are named max and ruby or does it have something to do with the T.V. show?
