Corn Maze Kids

October is my favorite month of the year – my birthday month, Halloween, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and cooler weather. Unfortunately, California doesn’t quite agree with me. But seriously? How are we nearing the end of the year and still living in summer weather?

Anyways, I’ve always wanted to visit a pumpkin patch and corn maze and I finally made it happen! This past Monday, Chris and I visited Forneris Farms, a local seasonal farm market. They’ve hosted a pumpkin patch and corn maze since 1966. Entrance to the pumpkin patch was free but the corn maze cost $10 per person.

Unfortunately, the pumpkin patch was running low on pumpkins – it is late October now so I totally understand. It was fun seeing all the parents bringing in their little kids and struggling to take their photos. Do it for the ‘gram, ya know?

By 1PM, the corn maze finally opened up! I’ve always been fascinated with corn mazes – the result of growing up enjoying horror movies, I guess?

The owner said the maze would take approximately an hour to finish. Chris happens to be really good at reading maps that we managed to do the entire maze in thirty minutes. They offered CORNundrums to make the maze more interesting but we got took earlier turns and twists, and actually missed several of them – maybe next time. We had a fun time! Until next year’s corn mazes and hopefully cooler weather!

    Agreed! October is the best. I”m waiting for NM to get on board with fall weather too. Way to go on checking off pumpkin patch off the bucket list

    This is my third fall season here in the US, and I’ve never been! There’s a pumpkin patch close to where we live, but it doesn’t look as fun. Haha! There’s another one that’s right by I-5 (Carlsbad) that also has a corn maze, but it’s open with no shade, so it may not be as fun in this summer-ish weather! If I miss these this year, I’ll make damn sure we go next year for the sake of experience!

    I’ve never done a corn maze before! I didn’t know that they gave maps, but I guess there would be too many casualties without maps haha. Wow VERY impressive map reading! Maybe next time you need to take detours on purpose ;P -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    The corn maze is so cool! When do they harvest?

    Hope it cools down in California soon!

    Wow! I have never been in a pumpkin patch, in Spain, we don’t celebrate Halloween like in EEUU but it looks so funny. By the way, I live in Andalusia, and I am still wearing T-shirts, that October is too warm I have a lot of new sweathers waiting on my wardrobe.

    I used to visit pumpkin patches and corn mazes every October as a kid so this post made me feel very nostalgic! x

    You Americans do Halloween so well! I think I would probably panic in that cornmaze, but I have visited many a corn field during childhood and quite recently for ~the aesthetic~ Glad you had a fun time being spoopy’

    I agree, the high-90s temperature in AZ doesn’t make it feel like late October. That’s pretty awesome navigating skills – it probably would’ve taken me 2 hours with my sense of direction 🙂

    A corn maze sounds like so much fun! I love the photos your took, especially the obligatory ‘leading the way’ shot 😀

    This is so cool and what a fab idea to celebrate fall with this adventure. Fall is my favorite season too. This would be fun for my kids! I need to go check if they have one close by us. Thanks for letting me know. xoxo, Christine

    Corn mazes totally freak me out! Chalk that one up to watching Children of the Corn too young haha. But I think maybe I’d feel differently if it was during the day. With lots of people around. And pepper spray. :). You guys are super adorable. Pumpkin patches are the best, it completely puts you in the holiday mood! If you want some fall weather, come on down to CO! Actually… It’s snowing right now. I guess we skipped right to winter (but summer will be back on Sunday with 70 degrees!).
    Happy pumpkin picking!

    Aww this looks so fun! I wish I went to a pumpkin patch when I was there few weeks ago. Your photos are really good, seems like you had a great time.

    lucky you! the temps here are dropping and while i love sweater weather, i hate freezing my toes off when it comes time to go to bed, haha. anything horror absolutely scares me, but i don’t think a corn maze in broad daylight would be too bad. glad you two had a lot of fun!

    Ooh, there’s a pumpkin patch near me that I see every year but I’ve never been! I’m not sure they have a full blown corn maze (haven’t looked that closely) but I think they have other things to do there, which is really nice for the kids. Ah, infinitely better to do when it actually feels like October though. Thankfully it’s cooling down!

    What a cool adventure! Thanks for stopping by my blog! It’s nice that you live nearby too =)

    YASSSSS sounds like a lot of lit things happening this month except we just had a heat wave so what up with that, So Cal??????? Glad you and Chris got to visit a pumpkin patch and corn maze! You guys went far out there for some fun. October flew by too quickly for me so I probably missed out on all of the fun (and the heat probably ruined a bunch of pumpkins D:).

    OMGgGGgg You and Chris are so adorbs! I love how you are each other’s photographers. You guys were bossing considering how it took you less the time to get out XD. Hope next year will be a better year for some more corn maze conquering XD.

    Pumpkin patches seem so surreal to me, they are unheard of (at least to me) in the UK I think. Whenever I see my friends from the states with their pumpkin patches etc. I’m literally like !! omg !! it’s a real thing!!! xD

    Looks like you and Chris had a blast as always! October is a great month! I don’t really celebrate halloween, I just wait excitedly for Christmas. Yes, I’m already listening to Xmas songs. Sorry not sorry.

    Omg I’m so happy that you finally got to do a corn maze! I think it’s funny that you associate them with horror hahah. Since I don’t watch horror movies, I associate corn mazes as an activity for kids. Hope you had a blast! We didn’t get to go this year yet.

    Oh I just watched stranger things with the pumpkins and I just had to click on this post.
    I kind of wish I was in the US to pick my own pumpkin for halloween. We have them here in the supermarkets for the first time this year I am pretty sure.
    You guys love this time of year. Great pictures!!

    How fun! And I agree the weather in california has had different plans! But it should cool down this week so I can finally take out my favorite sweaters to wear =o)

    Sounds like you guys had a great time! I always love visiting pumpkin patches and running through the maze! It makes you feel like a little kid again. 🙂

    This looks so adorable you guys!! I wish we had a place like this near where we lived!! Cute photos!

    This is so lovely! We also went to a pumpkin patch and a corn maze this year to celebrate the Autumn and it was so fun! I need to put up my corn photos come to think of it… looks like you had a great day 🙂
