Sugaring Off

We enjoyed a time in the sugar bush recently, and here are some pictures to prove it!

We had a wagon ride out to the sugar bush. Adding to our enjoyment was being with some of our friends!

Then we toured the bush and saw how maple sap is gathered.

We learned about pioneer methods for making syrup before touring the modern evaporator.

We also enjoyed some pancakes! Grandma came too which was an extra blessing for us!
