Winnipeg Trip: Part One

This summers trip to Winnipeg was very eventful! We arrived in Winnipeg and spent a day hanging out, playing at Grandma & Grandpa's and getting ready for our weekend getaway. On Friday, our whole Bollman family - Grandma & Grandpa, Scott, Marnie, Sophie & Henry and our family of 5 went to Hecla for 4 days. We had a great time away as a family. We were super busy and had so much fun! 
This post is really long and has a lot of pictures :)

On Friday when we arrived, after we checked into our hotel, we went to the driving range. The 3 oldest boys each hit a couple of balls, while Zack and I watched.

Family picture!

Then to the practice putting green.

After supper, we went to the water park in the hotel. This was quite the amazing water park! There was a 3 storey waterslide, a lazy river, an area to swim and an area for little kids to play. The boys loved it and we were in there everyday for a few hours each day.

On Saturday, while the Grandpa, Scott & Michael went golfing;

Grandma, Marnie and I went exploring with the kids. We played at the lake;

and all over the hotel grounds.

After lunch, it was back to the water park again!

That evening after supper, we made a fire, hung out and roasted marshmallows.

Sunday morning we took a nature walk. It was a nice walk along a trail, through bush, 

and by the lake, 

all the way to the light house on the point of the island.

All 11 of us!

When we got back to the hotel, we ordered lunch by the outdoor pool. It was a beautiful, hot day and we all enjoyed spending the afternoon in the outdoor pool!

Another family picture Sunday evening before dinner:

Monday morning it was back to the water park for a couple of hours while Grandpa and Michael golfed. After lunch we were on our way back home.

On the way home, we stopped at the beach in Gimli so the kids could play in the sand and on the playground for a bit.

We packed so many activities into each day that the kids fell into bed each night exhausted! It was a great family weekend together!!
