Fall in northern Indiana

Yesterday was my niece Gabby's fifth birthday. She wanted to do something with Bethany and her family, so we met them at a farm about an hour northwest of here. The main feature of this particular farm is the corn maze. As we started walking through the maze my sister-in-law asked if any of us get claustrophobic.

Uh, yeah. Me. And by the way, I hate cornfields. Well, I love looking at them. I just don't like being in them.

Really, though, it wasn't bad. We were led around by a five year old and all had a good time throwing corn at each other, which we discovered later was against the rules. I even hid in the corn.

So "Field of Dreams" might really get to you, eh?

I didn't like the people coming out of the corn in Field of Dreams. Creepy.

(Cute kiddos!)

I think Children of the Corn is where it started.... Or maybe it was just my dad jumping out of the cornfield behind our house to scare me. =:o

My nieces and nephews are adorable.

We just did the corn maze thing this past weekend, too. Great minds, I guess. ;^)

It was a beautiful day for it, walking out in the field, and then taking the hayride out to the pumpkin patch. The kids enjoyed it, so it was all good (even though, like you, I'm not a huge fan myself...).
