And we're off...

This year honors the 75th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz...So, follow...

We have a 'quiz' sheet with 8 questions so we have to...

Larry's on the hunt...

The rows are long & plentiful!

Are you coming??? Nope, he's lost!

Plenty of corn still around...Hard kernels though

Our 8th & final question & sign after two hours...We got 7...

It was fun, hope to do it again sometime!


Today we drove outside of town to 'do' a corn maize. This was a first for both of us and we had a ball! This corn field has been doing maize's for the past 10 years with a different theme each year. This year they did the Wizard of Oz due to this year being it's 75th anniversary.

After paying our entrance fee we were given a quiz sheet with 8 lines for answers. We were instructed to try & locate the 8 posts/signs located throughout the maize in random order. At the end we turned our sheet in for grading & we got 7 out of 8 correct! Not bad, it's been awhile since we've seen the Wizard of Oz. Of course, when I was much younger I loved that movie!!!! Sort of felt like a treasure hunt :)

The weather was perfect with just a slight breeze & best of all, no bugs! Of course I was covered in insect repellant just in case. Being near the water so much lately has made us realize that water sites include mosquitoes! And they love biting on me :(
