Mesilla Valley Maze

First things first...

The Boston Red Sox are going to the World Series!! :)


What a game last night!

Ok I'm really excited, so just had to get that out of the way!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We had a pretty nice day at the corn maze yesterday; it was much cooler than it had been the last couple years. A little windy, but that was ok. Here are the pictures from when we went last year

Growth check
2005:


2006:


2007:


Her legs still aren't long enough to reach the pedals on the trikes they have; so Jennifer pushed her around the obstacle course and she loved it!


Kayla is wearing, appropriately enough, her Boston Red Sox cap :)


I'm actually out from behind the camera!


Shucking corn in the maze:


Once Kayla saw it actually was corn-on-the-cob underneath she tried to take a bite! Which didn't really surprise me because she likes eating it :)


She looks like she is wondering if Katelyn's piece is any more edible!


She would clear the path for us by throwing the corn back into the stalks:


She loved the hay ride out to the pumpkins. Here she is waving and yelling bye to a group of people heading back on their tractor/hay ride to the main area:


After this series of pictures she was pretty much done with the camera. I tried to take a few more of her with the pumpkins and she told me in no uncertain terms "no pictures!" She wouldn't even take one with me in the pumpkin patch like we have the last couple years!


I did manage to get this one of her taking a break in the rocking chair before we left though:

It looks like Kayla had a great time! I, too, enjoyed the pictures from past years. And, the last one (taking a break) is so sweet.

Beck said...

She's such a big girl now! And she looks like she had so much fun - you're such a good mama for taking her on all these adventures.

As soon as I read online that The Red Sox pulled off a comeback to be in the series I hurried up to see if you had blogged about your excitement... I sent you an e-mail about that already, so I wanted to just say how cute Kayla looks. I love seeing the growth check pics and I was cracking up when I saw the pic of her trying to eat yummy corn on the cob. That was so cute! You look great. Come out from behind the camera more often, will ya??

~Melissa~ said...

That looks like a fantastic time!

Deb said...

Sweet pictures of your little cutie! The corn maze looks like it's a blast, wish we had one here. :o)

Miranda said...

O wow, she has grown! Looks like a fun day, she's too cute!! Shaylee would have taken a bite out of the corn too, she loves corn on the cob!!

Sgt and Mrs Hub said...

Whoo Hoo! for the Sox... there are some happy people up here for sure! I have to admit I was wondering if it was going to happen the other night when they still had to win the next three games.

Love the pictures, especially the ones that show how much she has grown. I don't think she could be any cuter! Glad it was a good time and not too hot for you.

Tara said...

Wow-I can't believe how much she's grown!! That's really neat to show the different pics from the past years....makes me realize how fast they grow up. She's beautiful - it looks like you all had a great eim.

Glo said...

I always enjoy seeing all the pictures you take. Can't believe how much Kayla has grown. The part about "no more pictures" was cute.My kid do that to me sometimes.I'm always the one behind the camera. I don't like my pic taken. Memories are what its all about.

Glad the Red Sox won...

Karen said...

This Maze looks like a great place for children (and parents), good to see how much Kayla has grown too - what fun! Were you cheering loudly for the Red Sox? Can imagine you bouncing up and down on your couch!

Wow! Kayla is really growing! She is just too cute!

How have you been? I've been thinking about and praying for you, even though I haven't visited very often.

Hugs,
Eden

DeAnna said...

What a difference a year makes! Looks like alot of fun. We watched the game last night -- ok, not until the end because in the 8th inning it was pretty obvious they were going to win and it was already after 11pm. I knew you'd be pretty excited and Kayla looks cute sporting her hat. :)

ChupieandJ'smama said...

Very cute pictures!! Both girls are adorable and they look like they had a blast.
Oh and by the way....BOO BOSTON :(

Jen said...

I love pumpkin patches.

Sniz said...

I can't believe you've taken a picture of Kayla at that measuring thing every year at the same time, and it's not even at your home! You rawk, girl!!! These are awesome pictures!

Kacey Bode said...

Such a beautiful girl Miss Kayla is!!! I especially love the last picture, of her in the rocking chair!! How are you doing??? Hope all is well!!

That looks like so much fun - the twins love corn too. Great photoes - I love all the pumpkins.

Dori (Aviva's mommy) said...

Looks like the girls had tons of fun. She certainly has grown.

Was thinking of you last night when the Sox won.

Who doesn't love fresh corn! Yum! OK, I cannot believe the growth spurt over the last two years! That is wonderful!!! (And you look great too!) I love your blog!

Shannon **Gabi's Mom** said...

How fun to see her growing on that chart! Our church hosts a corn maze and our kids have the best time there. Looks as though you guys did, too.
