Having only lived here four short weeks, if there is one thing I can say about northern Louisiana, it is beautiful!
On Monday we had a “Family Home Evening” outing with our church at DixieMaze Farms in Shreveport. It was a BLAST!!! I’ve never been to a place quite like it. I had a terrible cold that day and seriously debated not going, but in the end decided that the boys would have fun and would be sad to miss out.
First the boys took a couple rides on the Cow Train. Both my 5 year old and two year old thought this was pretty awesome!
Then they decided to get down and dirty (and I mean REALLY dirty) in the Corn Bin. When you can’t make snow angels what do ya make? Yep, CORN ANGELS!
After that we headed to the Corn Maze. It was pretty muddy so we stuck to the front of the maze and Big Brother had us out in just a few minutes flat. Here is an aerial view of the maze from the DixieMaze Site…
And here is our triumphant “Conquering the Maze!” picture…
After we ate dinner it was beginning to get dark and we only had time for one last adventure. Brave Big Brother decided he wanted to go on the Barn Swing. It was dark so I really couldn’t get any pictures of him swinging, but here is a picture to illustrate just how high this swing goes. Big Brother is up there in a seat harness contraption. After getting all strapped in the attendant just kind of threw him off the ledge. LOL.
He thought it was amazing–almost had a meltdown when I told him he couldn’t go again!
Here are a few other fun pictures I snapped while we were there…
All in all it was a very fun evening and I’d highly recommend it to any family in the area!
DixieMaze Farms has several more attractions that we didn’t even have time to visit. You can check those out on their website. You can also find admission and attraction prices.
DixieMaze Farms is open year round, but from September 29th – October 31 they have their Fall Festival complete with Corn Maze, Haunted Maze, and Pumpkin Patch!
