So great to spend a week in Winnipeg with Randy & Darlene
and helping my dad & mom.
We even did touristy things.
at the Mennonite Heritage village.
And sat in their hot tub ~
even though we had warm beautiful weather.
We ate dinners outside
Visited the Shelmerdine Garden Center
loved the greenhouse, the gift shop and the gelato!
And went out to the Mennonite Heritage village.
Their first homes on the prairies were similar to
the turf houses we saw in Iceland.
And Elwood & Randy loved seeing this 1949 chevy truck.
And Darlene and I loved seeing the old kitchen,
wood stove, oil cloth, enamel bowl.
And the old Rogers syrup tin from our youth.
And we had some good Mennonite food.
verniki, farmer sausage, cucumber salad and rhubarb torte.
Of course the guys loved the blacksmith shop
And great to spend time with mom & dad, 89 & 93
We had a lovely dinner at Kyle and Tiffany.
So fun to see them, their house and hear about their trip to Newfoundland!
Their lovely home
And fun to have Tara and the kids joins us for a good Swedish supper (thanks Ikea)
and good to have Jacko join us after work.
And Randy bought this bottle of wine.
Haha. The middle sister!!
Elwood helped them take out two huge global cedars.
30 years old.
Now Darlene has to figure out what to put in there.
Moved the flower pots for now. :)
A great week there.
So thankful we could fly and didn't have to drive. :)
