Maine Maple Weekend

We had double the reason to celebrate this weekend. We finally have Brian back Saturdays and it's spring! Okay it might still be snowing but it's officially spring. I am putting all my positive spring loving vibes in the universe in the hopes that it will melt some of the snow. 

To kick off spring we went to a local farm to enjoy Maine's maple weekend. All the farms open up for the year and open up their doors to enjoy some fresh from the tree (sorta) pure maple syrup. They also sell maple flavored everything with maple syrup on top. While I was walking around it reminded me of Elf:

Emily: You sure like sugar, huh?
Buddy: Is there sugar in syrup?
Emily: Yes.
Buddy: Then YES! We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup. 

Let's get to the pictures. They showed us the syrup making process and poured some fresh warm syrup on the spot. It was so pure and incredibly sweet. One little cup was plenty. 
Since we were on a farm they also opened up the barn so we could visit all the animals. Amelia was on cloud nine. 
They opened up the gate to pet the horse and her little life was made. She has no fear and immediately asked if she could ride him. 
Amelia indulged in a little face painting. She asked for a horse and then sat extremely still and was very serious. 
Life made. 
I had some maple cotton candy and Brian had a maple donut.
 Look at all that snow behind me...
Such a fun way to kick off the new season. We are so happy to be coming out of hibernation. 

Happy Spring!
