Corn Maze Days



To kick off fall we ventured to a nearby town to their corn maze.  We've been going for years and years, see picture below.  It's become one of our favorite fall family traditions and although the kids are less enthused they never fight going and always enjoy it.  What I am finding now as a mom of a tween and teen is that they also kind of like to cling to a few family traditions and rituals even though they are growing their independence and separating from their childhood.  I hope to one day be able to witness them becoming parents and carrying on some of these little traditions into their own families.  


The Rosthern Youth Corn Maze is our favorite by far because it grows with the family.  There is endless stuff to do, including two corn mazes, children's and an adult one, a bouncy area, wall climbing, a pumpkin patch area for pictures and to buy pumpkins, various games and activities, a wagon & train ride, food and drinks, and our favorite a petting zoo.  It's a great way to support a local organization and enjoy a full afternoon of fun.  We grown to enjoy and indulge in their mini-donuts and either a warm coffee/hot chocolate or this year slushies because it was so warm.  






I wore this totally casual button up.  I am actually loving button up shirt this year and I've add a couple to my closet.  This one was purchased at Belong Lifestyle here in town but guess what?!?  They ship all over Canada and even have a location in the states Belong Lifestyle USA.  The ladies focus on celebrating and empowering women of all shapes and sizes.  I absolutely love their inclusivity and their dedication to uplifting women.  I decided to give it a little twist by tying a knot in the front and adding my floppy hat for the afternoon.  It wasn't too breezy so my hat actually stayed put, which is one of the main reasons I don't wear it as often as I should.   I actually really want to add a felt fedora hat in tan for fall 2021 and I think I am going to order it from Ten Tree, see link below.







What are some of your favorite fall rituals or traditions?

  2. Cute outfit! My boys complain about our activities but they always enjoy them once we arrive at our destination. We will keep on with our traditions till they move out!

    1. Hahaha. It's nice to hear others struggle with these types of things as well. Sometimes we get wrapped up and only see the smiling photos and think it must be just us over here having a hard time.

  4. Aren't you cute?! Love that outfit and it is perfect for a corn maze! I love the floppy hat. Oh, I know what you mean as a mom of a tween (she'll be a TEEN next month!) and a teen... it is harder to find things to do with them and some family traditions they don't seem as enthusiastic about at the start, but then they usually have a lot of fun by the time we get there and do it! Lovely photo of them together!

    1. It's nice to hear that others have these struggles too! Sometimes I feel like we have a group of moms to uplift each other when we are in the weeds of lack of sleep, feedings, baby teething, tantrums, etc. but there is some hard stuff with teens too. One for sure being letting go and finding a new balance. Anyway, it's always nice to enjoy a few hours of family fun.

  9. Had no idea the Belong gals had opened here in the U.S. Maybe in the Pacific Northwest up where Lana lives? Need to investigate. That button up shirt reminds me of one I bought at Loft years ago. Have worn the tail off of it!!

    What fun the corn maze was. We are going on Sunday. Can't wait. Hope we can get some family photos, too. Your daughters are such pretty girls. And you and your husband are a darling couple. I am wanting a hat and have been pinning them but really want to try some on. Just love yours!!
