Fiddlesticks Farms!

Good days with friends harbor in the soul of memories. I am blessed to have spent the afternoon with two amazing friends & a squirt of a girl with a 10+ personality! We headed out east on Hwy 158 to Fiddlesticks Farms to take part in none other than their outstanding "cornfield maize." ha ha. The farm provides family fun with generous supplies of funnel cake, corn & pumpkin cannons & a hay ride around the farm.
We were greeted at the entrance of the maze by a baby rattle snake. At that point I tried to turn to leave. I was cheered forward into the depths of the 1,000+ cornstalks grown in the shape of an armadillo & rider (see photo lower down). Kathleen was pumped about getting to the Super Slide, while Audrie & I whined about 3/4 of the way through the maze about funnel cake. Maribel lead us through the maze with great confidence as we attempted to avoid dead ends--ohhh, there were MANY. With the aid of a "Corn Cop," Kathleen soldiered us onto victory! Maribel proudly clanged the black finish-line bell to announced our survial! After the maze, there were funnel cake intros (Kathleen's 1st fried-treat experience) , goat observations, a little rain & lots of pictures.

All in all it was a great afternoon & a completely fantastic way to spend time with friends I love dearly. I am so thankful for really awesome, entertaining friends & sisters in God.
