March isn't complete without a visit to the sugar bush! This morning we visited our favourite one, Fulton's, which I have been visiting every spring since I was a baby. It was wonderful to share the experience with my own children, and the activities never disappoint. We got there around 11:30am, and waiting in line for our food. There is typically a line out the door, but it moves fairly quickly. The menu consists of platters of pancakes, sausages, baked beans, and beverages. But the thing that makes everyone excited, is the maple syrup. The pancakes are plain, the sausages are pretty good, and the beans are great. There are 2 kids options: pancakes with beans or sausages. They also get a cookie and a drink. The restaurant itself is a seat yourself lodge. There were plenty of high chairs. There are kids everywhere, it's far from quiet, and you share a table with strangers. But for this family, that was great. We brought along Toast Grandma, Toast Grandpa, Toast Great-Grandma, and Toast Great-Grandpa (who is 91 years old!). Toast Grandpa mingled with his new friends at the table, Toast Girl enjoyed running around with her Toast Grandma, and Toast boy was snuggled in asleep in the toddler Tula. After we were done, we went outside to play. Toast Girl got her face painted.. She asked for a Peacock! They did a really great job, with that one! We all piled onto the horse and sleigh ride around the woods, we learned how maple syrup was made, and enjoyed some maple taffy. The kids had a blast in the playgrounds. There are plenty of child friendly hiking trails, sliding hills, and room to run around for the kids. We had a ball! Everything is reasonably priced at about $2 per person, and it is all cash only so make sure to take it out before you head over.

Food Quality/Taste: (The food is bulk cafeteria style, but the maple syrup gets a 5!)
