Our morning started off with old-fashioned pancakes, a first for T&Q. Surprisingly, T wasn't that into her pancakes with real maple syrup. Miss Q on the other hand, hoovered a pancake that had to have been 10cm (4in) in diameter. She loved dipping the pieces in her maple syrup and then sucking it all off. We are pretty sure that her meltdown on the ride home was the crash of her sugar high.
I was most excited for the petting zoo. Upon arriving, I saw the sign that stated "hands must be kept outside of the fence." The petting zoo turned out to be more of a looking zoo. The girls didn't seem to mind. I was disappointed.

Maple syrup fast facts!
- Canada produces 85% of the world's maple syrup
- It takes 40L of sap to make just 1L of maple syrup
- Sap is only 3% sugar when it comes from the tree but after it has been processed it is 66% sugar
We actually managed to get a rare family photo. It has been virtually impossible to get two toddlers to sit still these days. It has been unexpectedly cold in Toronto for the month of March. Perhaps the two little punks were frozen to our lap!
