There's no place like home.

This post is long overdue, but as I suggested yesterday, life was sort of busy this week and my posts suffered as a result. Better late then never I always say.

Last weekend, my friends and I ventured to my hometown for a little fall fun! (Sadly for Amanda and I, our fun was limited to 3 hours as homework consumed our lives. Same story, different day) Going home this time of year is always perfect. The streets are covered in leaves that rustle under your feet. The potato fields are turned over and a nice contrast to the fall colours in the hills. The air is crisp and smells different then the city air I've come accustomed to over the last 5 years. I love my home.

(Isn't it just a beautiful landscape!)

My friends and I made our way to a local farm market that has a huge corn maze, fun farm and pig races! Things that really shout COUNTRY living, and I love it! 

 Saying hi to this cute little guy! (Who happened to get stuck in the fencing)

Good thing Amanda was there to help him out!

 Here we are making our way through the intense maze. 

Our awesome corn maze team! 

After our a-maze-ing adventure (yes, that just happened), we went on a hayride and watched an intense pig race featuring Kevin Bacon (my personal favourite!), Lindsay Loham, and Shania Swine -- love pig puns! 

Kevin Bacon was the clear winner! 

And just as the pig races ended, the skies opened up and it began to rain. It was a perfect way to spend an afternoon at home. It's kind of funny how I had never done any of these things before (minus the corn maze) and I only live a matter of minutes away from the farm. I'm glad I got to share these experiences with my wonderful university friends. Thanks for a great day, ladies! 

There truly is no place like home.
