How Sweet It Is

After a long winter of hibernation, we’re finally starting to venture from the house every now and then (Cakes hates the cold as much as I do). Last Sunday, the three of us hooked up with k-girl and her lovely family for a day at Bronte Creek Park.

The kids were thrilled with the tractor ride.

We learned how maple syrup is made (Cakes was actually interested, but I just wanted to hurry up and go get pancakes and bacon already!)

The girls burnt off so much energy that Cakes passed out in the car after five minutes—the sure sign of a great day.

What? I thought Canadians came out of the womb already knowing how to make maple syrup!

Love the last photo. Too cute.

We did that too and it was way more fun than I thought it could be. We didn't have bacon though. :(

Good fun, eh? Our kids also passed out right away - love what the fresh air does to maple sugar-buzzing rugrats!

wow, nice foreign spam above...

Misterpie's class went to a sugar bush last week and he took pumpkinpie, but I couldn't go because the stroller wouldn't work in the forest and The Bun is too damn heavy for a carrier! I was so depressed, becuase it looks like an awesome time... Plus, I'm really curious about what the sap tastes like before reducing.

I happen to know everything there is to know about maple syrup! I love maple syrup. I love maple syrup on pancakes. I love it on pizza. And I even take maple syrup and put a little bit in my hair when I've had a rough week.

BTW- what's with all the Chinese comments? It's the mention of bacon, right?
