Corn Maze Weekend

Monday, October 17, 2011

I'm so excited for this weekend. It is the annual Sever's Corn Maze/Lasagna Weekend. My whole family comes up for the corn maze and I always make my awesome lasagna. I look forward tho this weekend every year. It is so much fun. The shelled corn pit is my favorite. It is such a fun sensation sinking in corn. I reminds me of the farm.

This fall has been so great. The weather has been amazing. It was in the 80's a few weeks back. The last two have been very nice too. We haven't had anything going on for the last 3 weekends. I love being done with school and having my weekends back. I never realized it until now how much going to school on weekends sucked.

Volleyball started again. It is so much fun to play again. I really missed it last year. Well nothing else is new.

80’s in October?

What a gorgeous weekend! The weather was sunny and warm and it was so nice to be outside with no bugs and no humidity.

Saturday and Sunday we had the windows open to let the fresh air in. Sunday we went for a drive with Greg and Celeste to see the fall colors on the county roads along the Minnesota River Valley. It was beautiful. We stopped at Emma Krumbee’s for some apples and pumpkins. Evelyn loves pumpkins. She was picking the little pumpkins and putting them in the cart. It was so cute. We had a fun time.

Fall is one my favorite seasons, spring is the other. Fall is great because the temperatures are cooler (except for this past weekend) and the leaves are so colorful and awesome. It means apples are in season and taste wonderful. I eat at least one a day and up to three a day on weekends. We made 2 apple orchard runs this year already and I think we will probably go again. I love how the house smell while I back apple crisp. Pumpkins are all around. I love pumpkins. And college football is on every Saturday. What a great time of year!

The only downfall to fall (ha ha it’s a pun, get it?) is that winter is around the corner. Now I love snow and cooler temps but it means my sandals have to be packed away and socks have to be worn again. But that’s ok because fall also means the start of volleyball season. We skipped last year and it was heartbreaking for me. So I’m ubber excited we are playing this year. We start in a week. I can’t wait!!
