Why the picture of a tractor you ask?! Because I rode on it! My sister, brother-in-law, some friends, and I made a little road trip out to Elmira, Ontario for their maple syrup festival (which is apparently the largest in North America!). We had to park waaayyy outside of the town center and take a tractor ride into the festival site.

|This was the best shot I could get :(. We were too far away and there were polls in my way. And all my zoomed in shots of the puppies were blurry. :(|
|IT WAS SO EXCITING!|
|Festival wear: Vintage sunglasses, funny vintage sweater-jacket, generic white T, United Colors of Benetton skirt, little flats.|
The one thing I was the most excited about was trying maple taffy. Maple syrup is boiled over a hot fire and then poured onto snow in little shapes. The snow hardens the maple into a sticky, tasty taffy.

|Eating taffy! It was sooo delicious.|
|One candy apple for me and one for the Man (he had to work, so he couldn't come), a little jar of amazing maple butter, and this really cute antique double broach!|
