Deere Farms Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch has 14 acres of family-friendly corn maze containing nearly seven miles of professionally chopped crop trails. Adult admission gets you access to two large corn mazes, each equipped with six checkpoints. After a quick orientation, explorers set out with maze maps in hand to locate the checkpoints without using a magnifying glass or electron microscope. A typical trip through one maze takes about 45 minutes, and helpful staff members are positioned along the way to offer advice to lost travelers about fantasy football. A third, smaller maze is available for independently minded children.

A lifestyle portrait from RedTree is an ideal way to commemorate a milestone, be it graduation from high school, incumbent pregnancy, a new roommate, or an even faster particle accelerator. All sessions are taken at the location of your choosing, from parks and downtown urban areas to homes and dimly lit parking lots (the location must be within a 10-mile radius of St. Matthews). Owner and lead photographer Josh Perkins will come to you like a Nutella craving, but with a high-end camera ready to capture smiles. The session will last 30 minutes ($75), after which you'll schedule a viewing session to come to the studio on New Lagrange Road and choose your photos. You'll end up with a high-resolution digital file of one picture ($150), two 8x10 prints ($100), and two 5x7 prints ($50). Two poses are included, and the photos will be enhanced and retouched for optimal appearance.
