Perfect weather for the Maple Syrup Festival this year! We stood in line for about an hour to get our hands on the Buttermilk pancakes, Buckwheat pancakes, sausages, and Pennsylvania Maple Syrup....most of which was tapped and made right here in (almost) our backyard.
The kids favored the buttermilk pancakes, while the adults went for more buckwheat. Final count, an average of 5 pancakes per Jerome family member over the age of 8; and an average of 3 pancakes for the smallest two Jeromes (and the pancakes were not small - more like plate-sized).
Festivals always bring an interesting mix of people, sights, sounds, smells.....a delight for all senses. I was impressed that the children were fascinated by the man making bobbins and the women making lace. The above wonderful man also let Alec shuffle through his assortment of handmade bobbins....Alec was trying to find two that matched, but was unable to. We had a wonderful Sunday afternoon!
