Kick Off Fall with Hubb's "Corn" Maze



Kick Off Fall with Hubb’s “Corn” Maze
Written By Renee Arbia

Having a baby in the summer time was actually a slight plan for us. We intended to try to have a baby born in the summer months when it is too hot to go outside for very long. Imogen was born in July and our “nesting with newborn” time was during the very hot south weather and we were fortunate enough to enjoy it in the air conditioning.

With Imogen two months old and the weather cooling off we are excited to show her our favorite time of year. Xavier loves the fall just as much as Nick and I. September, October and November are our big season of fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving fun. This is when we try to soak up as much of fall as we possibly can. Although we will be much more relaxed in “soaking up” with a newborn this year; we are excited to show Imogen around this world that we love during our favorite time of year.



Last weekend our friends won some tickets to Hubb’s CornMaze in Clinton, NC. They invited us along with them. It was our first time going. Clinton, NC is about an hour and a half away from where we live. Imogen did really well on her first car ride. Right away we were very impressed with Hubb’s Corn Maze. They had easy and free parking. Their pricing options for the farm are a little complicated to figure out, but it makes it easier for you to pick a package to fit your family’s individual needs and they are very knowledgeable and friendly. Xavier found what he loved best right away. He loved the gigantic sand box with nothing but huge construction trucks. What is not to love about that?



Next it was onto the giant tube slides. I loved that they also accommodated Dada along for the ride.






Hubb’s did not just have “bouncy houses” they had two giant bounce pads to jump and play on. One was so big Xavier was a scared of it. However, the other one was one of his favorite things.




When we were ready for some sit down fun we had fun watching Xavier on the barrel train and anyone can ride the big train around the farm. They even have Cranky the Combine giving rides. The family hay ride was lots of fun, it even accommodated Imogen’s stroller.







I was extremely impressed with the facilities of Hubb’s Corn Maze. They have extra large outhouse bathrooms that are very clean, which you definitely appreciate after the long ride to the farm. Imogen is still nursing and will not take a bottle. I first nursed her on the bench watching the animatronics chicken show. (Yes, you read that correctly) However, it was hot outside and nursing in the heat is not something easily done for us. We luckily found a building called “Baby Hubb’s” which is a changing station and has two rocking chairs, curtains and a fan. It was an actual blissful stop of the day when I took Imogen to change her diaper and nurse her in front of the fan in the rocking chair.











We enjoyed the simple fun playground and giant lawn games and seeing the animals. Best of all we enjoyed the Corn Maze. I have no idea why I thought I would be good at a corn maze. I mean I’m good at the ones on paper, but you can easily see your way out. You have three choices of corn maze, hard, medium, and easy. We chose easy, because being stuck in a large corn maze with a two month old and a four year old is not my idea of fun. You are provided a map. However, I could not figure out the map. All you are surrounded by is actual corn taller than you. I was waiting for an alien to appear out of the corn while they are making a crop circle. Luckily, our friends are corn maze masters and got us out. If you have older kids they will love this part of the farm and it is beautiful walking through it.



It was great to spend the whole day at Hubb’s Corn Maze. It was beautiful outside, we got to relax and the kid’s had a fun day. It was the perfect start to our favorite time of year.
