The MAiZe at the Pumpkin Patch - Portland, Oregon Sauvie Island Deal


US Family Guide provided me with this promotional information to share with my readers. I am getting something for free in return for posting this information.

Portland's original cornfield maze celebrates its 16th season at The Pumpkin Patch on beautiful Sauvie Island in Portland, Oregon. Sixteen years ago, Craig Easterly, founder of the original corn maze, brought his weird idea to Sauvie Island's famous Pumpkin Patch and it soon became a fall tradition. The MAiZE attracts 30,000 eager explorers annually to the giant labyrinth of field corn, located just fifteen minutes from downtown Portland. Portland's premier agri-tainment attraction, The Maize and The Pumpkin Patch, have combined the local food movement with down home fun on the farm.

The MAiZE theme this year is "Dream Big" and depicts a happy child thrilled to find one of The Pumpkin Patch's giant pumpkins in the field. The MAiZE encourages visitors to come out and enjoy the rest of this fantastic summer we have all been enjoying as they lose themselves in the two miles of twist and turns in the five acre cornfield.

October:

Back to School with Wild Dill

wild dill free shipping offer

Back to School season is upon us. There is a lot to do to get ready for school to start. If you homeschool like me you are probably getting your curriculum and homeschool room ready and new school supplies bought. If you do public school you are probably buying a new ensemble and supplies for your school age children.

There is no reason that baby, toddler, and mom can't be fashionable too for the new school year. Wild Dill has great clothing, footware, and accessories for baby and toddler that are organic, fair trade, and natural. They have beautiful jewelry and bags for mom as well to spruce up her wardrobe.



Not only do they have clothing and accessories, they have educational toys that will help your little one's mind grow. These toys teach wonderful learning concepts that should be taught before littles get to school age. What better way to teach these concepts than with fun toys at home!



You can find other organic, fair trade and natural essentials for baby and toddler at Wild Dill as well. They also have bedding, feeding essentials, bath products, nursery decor & furniture. Their products are made in the USA, are European made, or handmade. I love all of their gorgeous products. Wild Dill is a fantastic online store with a wonderful selection of products at reasonable prices that can't be missed!

Free Entry to All National Parks to Celebrate the National Park Service’s 99th Birthday on 8/25


On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Organic Act creating the National Park Service (NPS), a new federal bureau in the Department of the Interior responsible for protecting the 35 national parks and monuments then managed by the department and those yet to be established (now there are 408 national parks!).

I am surrounded by Oregon and Washington state where I live. Oregon, the gorgeous state where I reside, has a total of 6 national parks, 10 national natural landmarks, and 17 national historic landmarks so far. Crater Lake National Park is by far the most famous of our national parks with its beautiful lake and scenery. Washington state has 14 national parks, 18 national natural landmarks, and 24 national historic landmarks so far. Mount Rainier National Park is one of the national parks in Washington with its gorgeous mountain and surrounding forests.

To celebrate the upcoming centennial of NPS in 2016, the National Park Foundation (NPF) launched their Find Your Park campaign to encourage everyone to get up, get out there and #FindYourPark - no matter your interest.
