I thought corn was corn no matter where you live...

Well, this weekend I learned a hard lesson...Florida corn is not the same as Louisiana corn, or Georgia corn, or Illinois corn for that matter.

Let me explain...

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I was craving a trip to the corn maze. So you can imagine my delight when I discovered that there was a corn maze less than an hour away. The website sounded fabulous and included an aerial photo of the maze, which looked pretty amazing. Hubby agreed to go with me to the maze on Saturday, so I was beyond excited. I could just imagine the rows of thick plush corn creating an intricate maze that would be tons of fun to navigate with my man.

So you can imagine my dismay when we discovered that Florida corn is actually short and looks more like weeds.


Hubby and I inside the weed maze (no Children of the Corn here!)



As you can see, there is nothing in this maze that even resembles corn.



Once upon a time, I think this was a sunflower.



No chance of getting lost in this maze!




I think the expression on hubby's face explains it all!




The website advertised a huge pumpkin patch...not so much, eh?



Determined to have a good time, I made hubby pose for silly pictures.



At least this little guy didn't have to do worry about keeping any critters away from the "corn".



We were famished after making our way through the weeds, so hubby took me to another little town for lunch. The San Ann Market was just the right spot.


One of the best parts of the day was this Italian sandwich...sooooo yummy!



Even though the maze was a disappointment, I got to spend time with hubby, so it was actually a perfect day. And I'm sure we'll still be laughing about the crappy maze for many years to come!

Looks like a fun time! Love the picture of you guys as corn!

Sommer said...

ooo bummer! at least you looked cute whilst navigating the weed maze.

Laura said...

Whell...looks like another disappointment to go with your never ending "Only in Florida" post that I read over the weekend.

Look at it this way! At least you found your way out of the "corn maze." That's why I never do those things! So scared I won't be able to find my way out!!

Tasha said...

Too bad that the corn maze wasn't too great but it looks like you guys had a fun day anyway! The pic of you two with your heads in the corn cartoon is so cute!

Imjustagirl said...

Kristin said...

Halloween here is definitely the same us up North that is for sure. You look fabulous btw. Super cute outfit!

Jules said...

I'm sorry the maze wasn't very fun. I had no idea that corn varies from place to place. The sandwich you got afterwards looks delicious!

Lace said...

LOL, that is some crappy corn, man! I love corn mazes too :) I won't take the good ones around Louisiana for granted after seeing this post! At least you got some quality hubs time in!

The sandwich definitely looks like it was great! That corn is hilarious - I'm in Nebraska, so I see my fair share of corn. Children of the Corn was filmed here - eeee! I know you haven't been blogging lately (me neither, sigh!) but I still wanted to say hello!!
