A Saturday Morning at the Sugar Bush

 
This weekend Willen and I spent some time together, just the two of us.
 
We spent the first Spring-like day of the year wandering through the forest at our local sugar bush, Agape Valley.
 
We enjoyed a hayride down to the sugar bush and toured the sugar shacks that were busy boiling down freshly gathered sap into beautiful maple syrup. We tromped through the mud and thawing snow, and peered into buckets slowly filling with sap, one drip at a time, and even watched a demonstration on how the Native American's and Pioneers purified their sap.
 
In the afternoon, we made our way back up the the Pancake House for fluffy pancakes smothered in pure maple syrup.
 
It was a beautiful day and there wasn't a better way to spend it than outside, soaking up every bit of sun. Not to mention getting a little muddy along the way.
