Maple Syruping in Connecticut

We took a little field trip one Saturday afternoon with some friends to a maple syrup farm.  The event was free and very simple but it was cool to show the children how maple syrup is made and how much work goes into the process.  We were absolutely FREEZING and were very thankful for our …
