Gary's a Chef!

This was today's project!  A Joanne Fabric flyer came in the mail and he saw this.  
It seemed simple enough to copy-- so.... he got it!

A new project!

Here's a chair that made it into my hands....
My sister-in-law was given it, and she didn't need it any more so....!

I love love love the fabric I chose!

It was my first time attempting a re-upholstering project, but I loved it!
I can't wait to do some more things!

The Sugar Bush

The three big boys starting out with our guide.  We had a big group, but the boys liked being front and center!
checking out one of the sap buckets
so full!  and still dripping like crazy!
Ben's about to taste sap!  We all had a chance to taste the sap right from the tree.  sweet! (literally!)
Listening with a stethoscope to hear the sap running in the tree
We all got a turn to listen
Nathan tasting the sap
getting ready to bring the sap back to the fire to cook
Hunter was the first one (of course!) to get a turn to carry the sap buckets
he had a blast!
Nathan's turn
I had to help Zephy with his turn...

Ben got to carry it most of the way
 At this point, though, my camera ran out of battery, so I didn't get pictures of the boiling sap pot, or tasting maple syrup etc.  But we all had such a great time, and it was such a beautiful day!  Certainly a fun, family activity!
