Last weekend, my husband and I went to a corn maze that our kids raved about. The maze is on four acres of land, and the design changes each year. It only took us 38 minutes to get through-record time, but we got lost in the beginning. A very strange and almost unsettling feeling, like being in the middle of a forest, trying to find your way out.
Needless to say, we found the exit, but the experience was so much fun. We ran into the same groups of people; everyone went in circles at some point. The middle two photos were taken from a platform overlooking the entire maze.
At the end, we walked around, enjoyed the country environment, but also felt a bit old, as little kids played in the corn box and on the hay stacks (weren’t our kids that young just yesterday?).
When we were ready to leave, we spotted the pumpkins, and since I love fall colors, I couldn’t leave without a photo of the vibrant gourdes. The other odd looking pumpkins are called “peanut pumpkins”-we’ve never seen these before; have you?
And yes, when we had a moment alone, in the midst of the maze, we stole a kiss. ♥

I remember enjoying the corn maze years ago.. Truly fun. Is this the one in Tracy, Ca?
They sure are, and I’m glad our kids found this one. It’s not in Tracy, but in Sonoma County…thanks for stopping by, Joel!
oh thanks, i dint exatly remember where it was, i was just visiting united states that time, dell osso family farm i think. Needless to say it was really fun.
Looks like it was a fun day out!
It really was, Andrew, and now we know where to go next year! 🙂
What fun! From the photos it looks as though it was the perfect day for it.
I have never seen a peanut pumpkin before. How weirdly cool!
It was a beautiful and warm, so yes, perfect, although we wished it would have been a cooler autumn day. 🙂 Aren’t those peanut pumpkins strange? I guess we learn something new every day! Thanks for your comment!
…’stole a kiss’!!! Best way to make a maze exit! 😉
Happy Tuesday [and November], my dear Lauren. xxxxx
I agree, Marina, the best maze exit! 😉 Happy Tuesday to you, too, my friend…big hugs! xoxo
Lovely shots Lauren. Such signs of this season are so pleasant
Thanks, Scott, and I agree with you about the gorgeous signs of this season. I really love this time of year…
Sounds fun and great photos. I’m reading your poetry books…a few each night. :0)
It was fun and a new tradition for years to come, and thanks so much for buying my books. I truly hope you’re enjoying them..xx
such enjoyment, Lauren
a lovely lovely sharing
Thanks so much for your kind words, John, Big hugs to you, too!
So happy to hear you went, and stole that kiss. 🙂 The two photos of the maze taken from the platform hardly show where the maze is. I can only imagine what it feels like to get lost in one. I know what you mean about your kids growing up so fast. My oldest is 43, and yes, I think it was just yesterday.Hugs, my friend.
Thanks, Michelle, and yes, it was dense and tall 🙂 so I’ll just avoid getting lost in any forests! Even though our children are adults now, they’ll always be our kids. 🙂 Many hugs to you, too, my friend…
We have a hedge maze close by to where we live but have never heard of a corn maze before. I could probably get lost in any kind of maze. 🙂 Nice pictures!
Well if you find one for this time of year, Ian, you should try it, lots of fun, and thank you for the photo complement! I’ll also catch up with your story this week; I haven’t forgotten!
Looks as though you were lucky enough to have fine weather.
The weather was beautiful, Ben, but for us, it could have been just a little cooler. I think we’re tired of the heat, and our state is in dire need of the rain. 🙂 But, not to complain, it was great for taking photos!
how cool is that. I’ve never even been in a maze. looks like a fun day Lauren. Hugs, G
It was pretty cool, Geraldine, and this was a first for me, too, but now we can start a tradition for years to come (and compete with our time). 🙂 Big hugs to you, too, my friend…
Perfect fall post! I’ve never been in a corn maze. Now if they had chocolate mazes. . .everyone would just eat their way otut.
Thanks, Binky, and this was my first time, too. And, oh my gosh, you made me laugh! I can’t imagine a chocolate maze, but it would be heavenly. 🙂
That sounds like so much fun! I’ve never wandered through a corn maze but I’ll have to try to find one now. Never heard of peanut pumpkins either. I’m glad you stopped and enjoyed with a kiss.
I hope you find one, Sheila, because it was worth the time. We’ll probably make this a tradition now for Halloween day. I guess I’m not the only one who’s never seen peanut pumpkins, either. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and I hope all is well with you! ♥
I have never heard of a corn maze, what a great idea and experience for the Children, seems to cover a large area. Reminds me of an old movie, Children of the Cornfields, at least your experience was not as spooky as the one in my movie.
Great enjoyable post.
Stolen kisses are sweeter.Aren’t they Lauren? Wonderful walk through the Corn Maze field and lovely your photos with the autumn colours!The peanut pumpkins have such a strange texture.I have never seen them before.Glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves near nature,dear friend!Have a nice,sunny day 🙂 xxx
They are, Doda! 😉 Thanks so much, my friend, and those peanut pumpkins are unusual, aren’t they? I hope you have a wonderful evening and tomorrow! Hugs! xo
Indeed,they are so unusual ,dear Lauren!Thanks for enriching my knowledge.Have a brilliant tomorrow! Hugs 🙂 xxx
This reminds me of a time as a teacher when we took all the grade 4s to a corn maze and we kept losing students. They didn’t want to leave!!
Wonderful memories! This was truly fun, and last weekend we went to the wine country and came upon another maze, smaller and not corn, at a winery. We went through it and made it out. 🙂 It must be the maze year for us!
There is where the fun is, Lauren! 🙂 Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
love and hug across the pond.
Thanks, my friend! This was definite fun! 😉 We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and hubby and I have today off, which is nice. Sending you love and hugs across the creek, too! ♥
38 minutes? Hey you’re supposed to find a spot to steal a few kisses with your sweetheart at a corn maze. Let the silly jocks run through.
Well, we were determined to beat the time it took our kids, to prove that we’re not too old, but we still managed to steal a few kisses. 😉
That sounds like a lot of fun!! 😀 We don’t generally have corn growing in fields in the UK, but there are a few varieties now that survive our cooler climate, so I have occasionally seen a field with with those recognizable plants growing. I do love to eat sweetcorn!! I’ve never been in a maze – any kind at all. I’m sure if I did I’d have to stick close to someone because I’d be terrified to do it on my own – nightmare!! 😯 I’m very glad you stole a kiss, it’s the perfect place! 😉
I’ve not seen pumpkins like that either, they’re very warty!! 😀
