More Maple Goodness

Another year gone, and the Williams County Maple Syrup day is over. We ate more pancakes, sausage and real fresh from the tree maple syrup. I’m still not sure when we started doing this, but as ia family we’ve been doing it for years. Another ride out to the sugar shack, where they make the syrup and tap the trees. The family seemed to enjoy themselves.

This year additional family friends showed up. My children went off on there own to be with their friends. I had many pancakes, sausages and cups of coffee. Yum. Of course I purchased some syrup to have the rest of the year and some maple sugar candy to have a bit later.

This day of course reminds me of days gone by. We spent many days like this with family and friends. It was a time to celebrate good food, good friends and good family. These days, from maple syrup days to days at the fair, were days to bask in our lives together. The family we had, the friends we made were the good things in life.

And who says there is nothing going on in the boondocks. 😉

  1. Glad you had a good time. I’ve thought about attending the maple syrup day in years past, but it’s ALWAYS on the same day as the Easter hunt – can’t pass that up!!

    I had the opportunity to come w/ everyone but, couldn’t get myself or my better half out of bed that early – maybe next year. 🙂

  3. ah! I miss that! My family back in Quebec has a “cabanne a sucre” but I haven’t have the chance to go in years… but I convinced my family to send me some maple sugar… ah can’t wait 🙂

  4. Down in the boondocks. Down in the boondocks. People put me down ’cause that’s the part of town I was born in.

    Sounds like fun though!

  5. Kloe, just east of Cleveland, Burton Ohio used to have a maple syrup festival. Ohio is the 5th largest producer of maple syrup in the U.S. and most of that comes from the area east of Cleveland.
