What a day so far!
Nick and I got to his parent’s house around 8:30 last night, ate some dinner, sat around and then went to sleep. The dogs are all having a blast (or, really, the other two are tolerating Maggie and her puppy ways), and it’s been fun seeing everybody.
We got up this morning, ate some sourdough biscuits and fruit and coffee and then got on the road.
An hour an a half later, we found what we were looking for.
The maple syrup festival!
It was actually held in a few really small towns in Highland County, VA, so there wasn’t too much going on but we did try:
- maple donuts (YUM!)
- maple ice cream (double yum)
- kettle corn
- maple bbq chicken
- maple pecan fudge
Glad we went, but the drive took up most of the trip there and back.
I did buy a new wooden spoon – handmade out of cherry wood, so that’ll be nice to have for my sourdough. Plus, I can finally get rid of the one I chipped in the blender ;)
We’re back at the house with the dogs and will be going to an Italian place to celebrate Nick’s dad’s birthday. I hear they have good pizza – I’m also hoping for some salad after all the sugar this afternoon. I slept most of the way back!
If you’re reading – Hi Dad! :)
