Tagged: Lyman Orchards

I hadn’t been apple picking since high school, and Darek had never been, so apple picking was a major priority on our trip. We went to Lyman Orchards, just like in the old days when my family lived in Connecticut. The weather was amazing and the apples were like magic.

For the past several years I’ve been wanting to take a road trip up to New England in the Fall to see the foliage and visit all of our amazingly wonderful friends that still live up there. I spent the first 7 years of my life in Massachusetts and lived in Connecticut for most of my high school years and I hadn’t seen a New England Autumn since 1996. Since fall is a busy time for my photography business, I just haven’t been able to make the trip even though I desperately wanted to. But this year we said “screw it; we’re going.”

And we did.

It was a whirlwind trip because Darek ended up starting a new job right before our trip and he couldn’t take off as much time as we had planned. So instead of driving, we flew, which I hate, and we only had a couple of days up there. But, we did go, and it was totally awesome.

We visited my friend Jaime and her son Michael in Connecticut first. One thing I really wanted to do was go apple picking, so we all went to Lyman Orchards, where we used to go when I was in high school. But first we went through the corn maze there.

Proof that we bought tickets:

CORN! Just to warn you, I may have gotten a little carried away with photos of the corn…

But it looked so cool!

Jaime & Michael:

Close up!

Darek loves to have his photo taken. Just don’t get your hopes up for a “normal” smile or anything:

A rare photo of the two of us:

Jaime and Slouchy Stacie…geez:

Corn with foliage in the background! And check out that blue sky:

Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the corn…groan, how corny is that? HA HA HA:

Yes, I’m a city girl. I find corn exciting:

And strangely beautiful:

We tried to explain this to Michael, but no one really knew where to begin:

Trying to find our way out of the maze:

We did it!

We survived the maze:

Darek takes a minute to mourn those who did not:

In the pumpkin patch:

Seriously, life just doesn’t get much more exciting that corn mazes, amiright?
