Maize Maze + Pumpkin Patch

Admittedly, fall is not my favorite season. I don’t like being cold, and winter is only slightly better because it has some fun holidays. Fall has Halloween. Which is cool. But leaves falling, pumpkin spice everything, and less sunlight just aren’t my thing.  I like boots and sweaters. For a few weeks.

Despite all the smack I talk about autumn, there’s just some fun fall traditions we’ve got to do. Like the pumpkin patch and the corn maize.

We visited the Maize Maze at Rio Grande Community Farm of of Montano. This year’s theme was a fractal maze, although we’re usually just lucky to find out way out.

The maze was in a different field and there were a few different varieties of corn (I guess). It seemed drier, but all that made it easier to navigate as much as possible with two crappy umbrella strollers. We made our way to an interesting metal horse sculpture and then headed back to the beginning.

After that, my children of the corn wanted to play. Atticus, picked a pumpkin, while Cyan had a butterfly painted on her face.

And they both played on the hay bales.

The fall fun continued a couple days later. We went with Cyan’s class on a field trip to the Galloping Grace Pumpkin Patch in Rio Rancho, Colorado. Aside from it being far, I prefer Galloping Grace over McCall’s for the little ones.

Things like feeding animals.

Riding animals.

Animals riding each other. No seriously, these turtles decided to get it on. And I along with other shocked parents decided to document it. Due to technical difficulties, I’ve decided to spare you the video. Although I will say the male turtle, sounds like he’s trying to clear his throat. Maybe I’ll post it to Instagram, this is a family blog after all. 😉 And that my friends is how Ninja Turtles are born.

Cyan had fun making mud pies with her friend Aja.

There were also duck races, sling shots, and a tractor pull.

Cyan’s two favorite things were the corn pit and the slide. She along with most other kids could stay there all day.

But eventually of the little ones get tired.

Happy Autumn!
