Winnipeg - Day 4,5 & 6 - Hecla

Day 4, 5 & 6 - off to Hecla Island!
On our way to Hecla we stopped at Winnipeg Beach for a bit. The kids had a great time playing in the sand and swimming in the lake:

 As soon as we got to the hotel in Hecla the boys wanted to go straight to the waterpark. They love swimming and the waterslide!

The next day, Grandpa, Michael and the boys played a round of golf:

and when they got back... straight to the pool!

After supper we went for a walk by the lake:

LOTS of rocks to skip!

Smores, a fire and soccer after our walk:

The next morning we started our day with a little more golf:

More exploring by the lake:

Levi found a little critter by the lake:

and of course, a photo with Mom :)

Back to Winnipeg for a birthday celebration for Jakob!

Another great Winnipeg trip!

Winnipeg - Day 2 - Manitoba Children's Museum & The Forks

Our second day in Winnipeg... Michael had to work so I took the boys to the Children's Museum and forks.

The Children's Museum is always a favorite for the boys!

They might be getting too big for some of the activities ... lol.

There are so many fun, science-y things that they love!

and Lego is always a favorite!

After the museum we walked around the forks.
When Michael and I were dating we took a picture at this exact spot 💗

Posing with the new Winnipeg sign:

Zack tried out his scooter at the skate park:

It was so crazy hot out, we couldn't wait to get back to the pool! Thanks to Mom & Dad's neighbours for letting us use their pool :)
