Maple Syrup Weekend 2015

The title says it all, really. It was a gorgeous weekend in mid Indiana at my uncle's cabin. Plenty of mud and muck to be found but so much fun. Boiling sap, hikes in the woods, gun shooting, and piles of delicious food. It really doesn't get much better than that. Our day of labor netted us 1 3/4 gallons of maple syrup; just enough for every family to take home a pint or so.

This was our third year attending and it was the warmest by far. It was in the 60s both days and by Sunday afternoon the sun was so hot that I stripped down to a sleeveless shirt. Frankly, the whole weekend was just basically perfection. But then I've thought that about the last two years too. What can I say? I love Maple Syrup Weekend :-)
