Our particular brand of parental insanity drove us out into the frigid snow and gusting arctic winds this past weekend to eat maple candy and pet cows during the first Sugar Bush weekend at King’s Landing Historical Settlement.
What? That sounds perfectly normal to you? Wholesome, even?
Consider this: before Amelia, Gary and I would happily hibernate all winter, emerging only long enough to rush to the airport for a week (or two!) on a warm tropical beach.
Now I own snowpants.
Sure, the maple Sugar Bush event looks wholesome, and delightful, and yes, Amelia loved every second of it. In fact, we’ll probably go back in 2015.
Because from what I hear, the temporary parental insanity lasts for years.
Sugar Bush weekend is the maple syrup festival, and it lasts for two weekends this year. So if you missed it, you can still catch it next weekend!
And bring your appetite, because for $9 (which goes to support search and rescue efforts), you get this:
(Although it looks like the second weekend will have warmer weather!)
