It's maple syrup time!

A couple weekends ago we went back to Drumlin Farm for pancakes, maple syrup, and baby animals. We ate the pancakes and syrup, and we looked at the babies.

After breakfast we went outside in the icy snow. The first place we stopped was to look at some lambs and baby goats that had been born just that week.

After seeing the lambs and goats, we saw some baby cows, but they weren't so cute, so I haven't posted any pictures of them.

Then we went to see how maple syrup gets made. The syrup maker showed us how they have to boil and boil it off so that it thickens up. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup!

I had a great time at the farm!

Later that day we went to Aunty Karna's for breakfast #2. I was still full from breakfast #1 but I liked walking around her place. Look at what I found!
