Corn Maze

It’s a beautiful weekend here in the Pacific Northwest…sunny and crisp, great weather for being outside. This afternoon Jeff and I continued our tradition of visiting a corn maze each fall. This was a great maze, there was some flattened corn from the high winds we had here a week ago, but for the most part the corn was tall and dense, and we definitely needed the map they gave us! Thankfully Jeff is an excellent navigator and we found our way through. Then we wandered around the farm a bit, and discovered (much to Jeff’s great delight) that the farm does “punkin chunkin”….they have two pumpkin cannons to launch your pumpkin into the field. A really good launch will send the pumpkin into the creek. It was a great way to spend a fall afternoon!

I would like to add a disclaimer to the above photo: I do not normally wear my jeans that way, I had them folded up because the maze was quite muddy.

It’s a turnip!

Okay, so it’s not really a turnip…but our baby is now the size of a turnip, according to Babycenter. They send me an email every week detailing what’s going on with the baby’s development and they always helpfully compare it to some food item. Last week it was an avocado, as of today, a turnip! Also in today’s email: the baby’s skeleton is now becoming harder and not so rubbery, and it weighs about 5 ounces.

I’m definitely expanding a bit. From this:
