Yesterday we – E, Baby A, Daddy, Grammie, Papa, Uncle Ben and I – trekked to Westfield Heritage Village for a “Sweet Taste of Spring.” We weren’t the only ones – it was packed, and the atmosphere was festive.
We went last year at maple syrup time, too, but the temperature was in the 20s (Celsius) so it felt like summer and was altogether incongruous. This year, the weather was PERFECT: cool and comfortable in sweaters and boots, sunny, totally refreshing. We ate pancakes at a picnic table outside, and had enough time to be leisurely and visit the historical houses as well as the sugar bush elements.
I loved being there. It’s all about good wholesome fun: learning, nature, heritage, fresh air, family… and a little sugar.
