BABIES IN A MAZE!!
Just outside of New York City, there is a corn farm that is carved into a challenging maze in the fall.....
There is lots of crazy love at the maze for mamas and babies.....
O'Neil checks out the maze...
Look Elliott, It's a goat!
What's a goat?

But the brave mamas are determined to face the maze! Those flags behind them are all that remains of those who went before them.......
Hey Elliott, these are turkeys.....
What are turkeys?????
And Elliott, these are flowers.....
What are flowers?????
Is he for real?
The group is ready to challenge the Maze....
First there are directions and safety tips.....
Daddy is venturing in......
BACK TO THE CITY, I SAY!! FORGET THE MAZE!!!
But they ventured in--and were only visible as another flag.....
We SURVIVED the maze!
Yeah! Treats!
What are treats?
He's kidding, right?
And a good time was had by all!

DIXON STUDIO TOUR


The first stop was one where we had to park at a distance and walk through an orchard and up a hill to a very old, very interesting home......(This photo looks like the cover of OF MICE AND MEN.)
