Guthrie Pumpkin Farm and Corn Maze

Saturday we spent the afternoon at Guthrie Pumpkin Farm and Corn Maze (there's a cute little video about the farm and what it takes to "raise" pumpkins if you click that link :-) ).

First we went through the maze. The kids took turns leading us and McKayla is actually the one that led us out of the maze. WTG McKayla!

After the Corn Maze, we headed over to the petting "zoo". They had the CUTEST little critters in there and McKayla and Chris even got to bottle feed the calves! You could also feed the other critters if you put a quarter in the machine. :-)

Then we headed over to the obstacle course. The kids took off running through them and McKayla "won" but only b/c she didn't go through the poles or jump over the hay bales. LOL

Right beside the obstacle course was the "Hippity Hop Track". What I wished I'd gotten on film was John demonstrating to McKayla what you were supposed to do when he promptly fell backwards. Haha! McKayla got a kick outta seeing Daddy fall and proceeded to "fall" all over the place. :-)

Next on the "agenda" was the hay ride and pumpkin picking.

Originally, I was really upset with the kids for not cooperating for the picture below....I had this certain idea in my head and they wouldn't work with me. However, when I got home and saw this, I had to smile as it turned out pretty good. I LOVE the look McKayla is giving her brother and the look on his face too. This screw-up actually turned out better than what I had envisioned. <3

Here, I'll zoom in for you :-)

The Corn Maze

Lastly, it was time for sliding, tire climbing and steer roping.

It was a great day spent with the family.
Hardly any arguing or yelling between siblings, all smiles and laughter. Couldn't have asked for a better day. :-)


  1. Those calves are adorable! My goodness... the big, liquidy eyes. I melt.

    1. Oh I know it Dom! Those eyes get me every time! I could've spent ALL day with them but the kids were anxious to go LOL

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK.

Pedigrees of FAWN or BRINDLED Danes should not carry HARLEQUIN, BLACK or BLUE upon them -------------------------------------------…
