Lost in the Corn Maze

On Tuesday, despite my cold, Jason and I bundled up to face the rain and explore a corn maze.   (Hey, it was on the calendar)

We've been to several corn mazes around the state.  You could say we're corn maze officiandos... actually, no you couldn't say that.  It sounds a little douchey.

Anyway, we've been to a few corn mazes around the area.  A lot of them are located outside of the city-- a 30-45 minute drive from our house.  But after a bit of research, we found out there was a little farm in Boring that had a corn maze.

Liepold Farms is in Boring.  There's a pumpkin patch, corn maze, hay maze, hay ride, and an apple catapult.  I was pouring down rain at the farm when we arrived, so we decided the only thing we wanted to do was the maze... and launch a few apples, of course.

The maze was small, and had a circus theme.  Plus, they let dogs walk through the maze.  As you can see from the photo below, Khloe loves corn mazes.

Now, you'll notice that miss Khloe is not on a leash.  Technically, she's supposed to be on a leash-- but since no one was around, we let her run around.  Thankfully, she's trained well enough that she didn't weave through the corn or crush anything.  Plus, she got to run in the mud and get the car all dirty.  Score one Khloe!

The maze took us about 30 minutes to get through, and while the displays were a little cheesy, it was incredibly fun.  And worth the exhausted feeling I had when we were finished.

Jason launched a few apples, and we got a small bag of caramel corn to eat on our way home.  It was a cute little farm, and the family who runs it was incredibly nice.  We'll have to go back again, when the sun is shining-- and explore some of the other features.

Do you have a favorite farm you visit in the fall?  Have you ever been to a corn maze?  Where, and was it carved in a cool pattern?  Leave your feedback in the comments section below, I'd love to hear from you.
