Soccer was canceled this weekend due to swamped fields from a recent rain, so we decided to brave the Maple Syrup Festival at a local park. We only waited in line about an hour for buttermilk pancakes, buckwheat pancakes, sausage and juice. The kids were really excited because they had seen the white buckets near several trees in the park for the last month and they knew that the buckets were collecting the sap for maple syrup. So here are some pictures of the kids enjoying their pancakes with local syrup.
The extended Jerome family also pulled off a surprise 75th birthday party for Darrell's dad. Seventy-one people showed up! We had the nicest day of the spring so far and everyone had a good time! Happy Birthday Pap!
