Sugar Shacking

Or should I say Suga Shacking. Last weekend was NH big Sugar Shack weekend. Hundreds ventured out and visited different Shacks all over the state. Of course most of these people went on Saturday when it was actually nice out. Well not us, Saturdays are still filled with Soccer and by the time we are done with Soccer there is no time for anything else. So we went out on Sunday, it was wet and cold but we had a blast!!! I was a little (okay a lot) unsure of what to expect. Ben was beyond excited to hit the road and the kids just wanted food. Before we even hit the 1st Shack we soon realised this was going to be a GREAT family day and we were all excited!!!! We had so much fun looking and exploring the shacks and tasting the different syrups they had. The kids thought it was the coolest thing ever to just be able to drink maple syrup. We had a great time.

After we ended up at a local smoke house that Ben has been wanting to try. We went, we tried, we cried. It was awful....no seriously it was bad. But we still left with huge smiles knowing that Dad was still the best BBQ'er ever! Another reason we feel he should open his own smoke house. I mean with the prices they charge how could we go wrong?

All in all it was a great weekend! Both boys won their games, both boys were stars on the field. They both came home with a few goals, some awesome goalie stops, and great assists. I got a girls night out (happy dance) family time and dinner with awesome friends. I was not ready for Monday morning to come
