Maple Marshwiggles

We had a trip to the sugarbush recently. Although it was too cold to see sap in the buckets, we did see sap ice - which was fun to poke with your mitten if you were a small person. It was Pip's first meaningful visit to the sugarbush! I think he enjoyed it! After we walked on a trail admiring the sap buckets, and then the hoses, we saw how early pioneers and native people would have made maple syrup from the sap.
We also enjoyed pancakes with maple syrup, and baked beans with syrup. Granny wore a special hat so she would look good in the pictures, so I have to show you it. Pip seemed to like it too:
