It's Corn Maze Time!

The fact that I've had my windows open nearly all day the past two days means one thing: it's almost corn maze time! (Technically I guess it means a bunch of things, but go with me here.)

I visited the Kelley Farms Corn Maze in Lexington for the first time last year and shared my experience here. I joked that I wanted to go in order to test out my new riding boots, but really, I wanted to say I walked among corn shaped like Coach Calipari's head.

Not only can you get lost in the corn maze (is it just me or does the 2012 design look a little harder? What if I get lost in the arm pit?) but you can play corn hole, pick pumpkins, have a funnel cake, hot cocoa, feed goats, and take a hayride. If that doesn't personify fall in Kentucky, I'm not sure what else does (except the Keeneland fall meet). The maze is fun for families, couples, or friends. Just make sure that if you get easily frustrated when lost like I do, that you have a companion that can calm you down so you can soothe your ragged emotions with a funnel cake.

Opens September 21. For days, times, and weather updates, visit them on Facebook or on their website for the most recent updates.

Calipari Corn Maze

Y'all know how (most of) us Kentuckians are all about basketball, right? This past weekend, I got inside Coach John Calipari's head.

Hubs and I ventured out to the Lexington Corn Maze at Kelley Farms. It was a beautiful fall day, and since we never have a weekend off together, we got out of the house for a few hours.

The corn maze is about 10 acres, and once you're in it, you wonder if you'll find your way out! Thankfully, my husband was paying attention to the map and led us through the beginner and advanced mazes without incident. In addition to the awesome maze, the insanely delicious aroma of funnel cakes and kettle corn were in the air. There was a pumpkin patch, corn hole, and duck races (little rubber duckies you try to race by pumping water behind them- I totally beat my hubs). I also experienced my first hayride ever, which was quite enjoyable. Also- goats! They were so cute. I also got to try to lasso a fake steer. I failed miserably - apparently I'm not cowgirl material.

If you're near Lexington, I encourage you to go check out the maze. We had a great time, and agreed it was the perfect way to spend a fall Kentucky day. They're open Wednesday-Saturday until October 29. Check out their website or Facebook page for more information.

Have you ever gone through a corn maze?
