Making Maple Syrup

Cayden's Grandpa undertook a maple syrup project this winter, and we've been patiently waiting for a nice day to take Cayden to the bush to see the process.  He maybe doesn't quite understand why he was back there today, but he had a lot of fun exploring regardless.  We took the ATV back, because the trails are so muddy right now.  Once we were back there, it was easy to walk around and check out the pails.  The maple syrup crew had been boiling since first thing in the morning, and the trees were just starting to drip by late morning.  We have already tasted a bit of the home made syrup, and that has Cayden asking for pancakes ("tan-takes") all the time!
