Sadly I haven't been able to blog much this week due to tons of midterms. Happily they're finally over and I can sort of move on with my life...until finals. Woo! Yesterday I had the opportunity of tagging along with my family to Diana's Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze which was a pretty good time. I've never been to Canon City, Colorado or to a pumpkin patch in general so I was excited to experience something new.
The pumpkin field was enormous with so many varieties of pumpkins. I'm not a pumpkin fan at all so of course I picked such an itty bitty pumpkin that was a just the perfect size to prop on my desk as "decor".
I had a pretty great time in the corn maze. I thought it was interesting that the maze was literally made out of the corn field and the theme apparently changes every year. It was well constructed and we actually circled some spots a couple of times but it was still fun! I can't remember how long we were in there but sadly we didn't complete it.
It was nice and shady in the field which was great because here in Colorado the weather can be very confusing. I probably would have enjoyed myself a little more if the temperature was just slightly lower and not in the 80's like it was all day yesterday. Maybe next time I'll be able to complete the maze.
Overall it was sweet to see some fresh corn still on the corn stalks. I was just imagining what they would taste like after being on a grill. Yum! I had a pretty great time and it was nice to not be on my college campus doing the usual. Now of course I'm back on campus and am prepping for tomorrow for classes. I still will enjoy what's left of my weekend and I hope you guys do too!
