Family Day at the Sugarbush

A family sugarbush weekend at the river.  Friends let me tag along, and I'm so glad they did.  It was overcast, but warm.  An annual get together with many family and friends laughing, sharing, and working together.  It made me think about my childhood........gathering at Grammie and Grampies to boil in the big cauldron.  Everything on the farm, back then, seemed like a big family party.

This gang was set for a weekend of fun, and maybe a bit of work, that didn't really seem like work.  All for the fun of it all, and to make that sweet maple syrup for the coming year.  I only wish I would have spent the day......for the taffy on the snow!!  ;-)

Thanks Watson family for letting me hang out with you for a couple of hours.

  Chaga tea.  Surprisingly sweet.

  Everybody lends a hand.  Quite a process.
