Experiencing O-H-I-O: Corn Maze + Picking Apples

ApplesThis past weekend was my last free weekend before classes start and to mark the day I decided to enjoy a bit of O-H-I-O by visiting a corn maze and by picking apples at Lynd Fruit Farm in Pataskala, OH.  My husband and our little brother and little sister from Big Brothers Big Sisters also joined me in this countryside adventure.

From what I understand, Lynd Fruit Farm is well known for its fresh and locally grown produce and also for being a great place for picking your own apples from several different varieties of the fruit.  This time of the year,  families can also enjoy going through their 4.5-mile corn maze which takes an average human being 30 minutes to get through – that is if you manage to find the exit without getting lost like we did.  This year’s theme is “Persian Nights” and the organizers created lots of little tasks to be completed (if you wish) while going through the maze.

Below is some contact info on Lynd Fruit Farm if you’d like to check it out – I’d highly recommend it especially if you have children or teenagers around.  For young adults, check out the maze at night (they are open until 10PM) and you can try to conquer the maze with flashlights – very spooky!!

O-H-I-O – My first OSU experience…

Thanks to a couple good friends (thanks Mel and Sue!) who provided me with tickets to the OSU vs. Navy game I was able to attend my first OSU sports game AND my first football match ever.  While I enjoyed every minute of it (alumni band, Ohio script, OSU band, etc…), I must confess that I could hardly understand the rules of the game.

OSU_GAMEBack in my home country (Brazil) we watch soccer and, let me tell you, the rules for soccer are so much easier. Watching the Bucks was almost like trying to understand Calculus for the first time and I failed miserably!!  Hopefully I will be able to get the game down by next year when I am able to get student tickets – something new I learned way too late this year…

In the meantime – GO BUCKS!!!
