Day In The Life: Lyman Orchards

My daughter Auden turned 3 last Thursday and to celebrate, I had a couple fun activities planned to do earlier in the week. One of the ones I was really looking forward to was a sunflower maze at Lyman Orchards!

Lyman Orchards started back in 1741 when a 37 acre parcel of land was purchased by John and Hope Lyman. Over the last 276 years, it has grown to cover more than 1,100 acres and is now home to an array of fruits, vegetables and  flowers – not to mention delicious pastries and local farm fresh goodness. Each summer they create a sunflower maze and a corn maze in the Fall.

The maze itself was really interactive – they offered a 10 question, age appropriate quiz that, upon answering correctly, let you know which way to turn next. I was really proud of Auden for her stamina during the majority of the 2 mile winding walk and Joona even took a nap while on my back in the Ergo carrier. Wins all around. We ended our fun with a little picnic in back of our car. Auden let me know that it was “The most fun flower day EVER!” I would call that a success :).

Obviously very stoked

There were so many varieties of sunflower! So pretty.
We made it to the end!
Thumbs up for finishing the maze!
