We had fun. One of her girls wasn't feeling well so we decided to go back to her place for lunch rather than eating out. The children had fun playing together as well.
Canada produces about 90% of the world's maple syrup. Of that 90%, 80% comes from Quebec - they have a longer sap run and bigger wood lots. Pans are made in such a way that the denser the sap gets the more it moves in the flat pans until it is ready to be poured out and filtered.
This bush produces enough syrup to supply their pancake house.
