Corn maze with Ashley and Peter

Today was a full day. We started off at the library where Lydia and Mary can go to the same story time! I chatted with Ashley and Peter while the girls did that together. Then we all headed over to Vineyard’s pumpkin patch. It was my very first time walking through a corn maze.

Had Ashley and I not both been pregnant, getting lost in the maze would have been nothing short of sublime. The weather was gorgeous, the corn was tall and talkative, and the sky was a beautiful shade of blue. Also, I can not imagine a more lovely friend to share the experience with. Ashley is one of those people who basically glows with goodness. But as beautiful as the setting and company was, we were both physically taxed by the experience. By the end, I was very grateful to find our way out.

Lydia, Mary, and Peter in Tomato Alley. Mary doesn't like tomatoes, so she gave away all of hers. Up until I had Mary, I profoundly distrusted people who didn't like tomatoes. I guess God wants me to know that people who don't like tomatoes can actually be very lovely people too. (Before Mary, I never took the time to figure that out...)

I really like how you can see the blue sky and corn in this picture. I should have taken more pictures of that thrilling combination, but this is the best I have.

After that, we rushed over to ballet.
