Winnipeg: Part Two

More fun from Winnipeg...

Friday it was raining again, so I met my friend Cher and her son Hurley at The Great Big Adventure indoor playground. The boys played all morning long.


My Winnipeg bestie!!!


Jake and Hurley:


Saturday it was still raining!! So we went with the whole family to the Children's Museum. This is one of the boys' favorite places, they love it here!

All 5 Bollman cousins - Levi, Sophie, Henry, Jakob & Zack:


There are several stations in the museum, all are interactive. The kids can play (and learn) at each one.


There is an old train in the middle that the kids can sit in and pretend to drive. It has a few cars attached to it too. Zack and Sophie loved pretending to drive the train!


A big play structure:


And other fun stations:


The kids played at the brick building area the longest. They probably would have stayed longer, if we let them :)



The big boys loved this area too!






Jake needed to get that last brick on, so he scaled the window, lol!




After the Children's Museum we walked around The Forks. Michael and I had one of our first dates here, it was fun to walk around and relive those great memories :)





Sunday it was raining (again!). We decided to go to the Manitoba Museum, Planetarium & Science Center. 
We walked through the whole Museum and then went out for brunch at Stella's Cafe (so yummy!), then in the afternoon we went to the Planetarium & Science Center.

Winnipeg: Part One

Every summer we do the 14 hour drive to Winnipeg and spend approximately 10 days with Michael's family. There are so many fun things to do in Winnipeg, so we pack as much as we can into each day that we are there! 
We arrived last Monday night and Tuesday & Wednesday were absolutely beautiful (hot!) days, so we went swimming both days.


The boys' cousin Sophie joined us at the pool. The kids played so well together and had so much fun!


The boys are fish and love swimming. (This picture makes me laugh!!)




Sophie joined right in and was part of the gang!



Triple decker!

Thursday it rained all day. So we went to the Royal Canadian Mint, it was a fantastic place to visit. Very educational and interesting.

A 23 lb brick of solid gold. It is much heavier than you would think! It is worth $500,000!!






Michael's weight is worth $3.3 million in gold:



After The Mint, we went to see a movie and then to the arcade for a bit:





The "boys" love the arcade :)


Thursday evening we went and visited our good friends Mark & Colleen. No pictures, but we had a great time visiting and the kids had a great time playing together!

August Paper Pumpkin

Augusts paper kit was so cute! Again I wanted to make a few cards using just the kits contents. Here is what I came up with!
