This weekend (April 25th-27th) is the Vermont Maple Festival in St. Albans, Vermont. There are a lot of fun activities for the family, and we’re really hoping the nice weather holds out until Monday. Some of the nieces and nephews will be marching in the parade, and I’ll be there taking pictures! Some of the highlights:
