Manitoba Summer

I love Manitoba summers and was so happy to get a visit in back home this year.  In 100 words or less, here is a recap of the visit:

Family picnic at Assiniboine Park w/surprise concert of my fave Manitoba duo, “Keith and Renée”.  Swam the waves at Grand Beach.  Family BBQ with 4-year-old niece’s favorite: ribs!  Relaxed by the pool with mom.  Visited the Mennonite Heritage Village with dad.  Birthday celebrations with 6-year-old super party-planner.  Comedy show.  Movie night.  The Forks.  Visited with a friend I haven’t seen in 20 years!  Best cinnamon buns found with sister-in-law in Lac du Bonnet.  Lake time at my brother’s cottage.  Overeating with dad…did we really need the large sundae to top-it-off??  Learning to make perishke with mom…yes, my Ukrainian wifey-duties…

I could go on but I’m at my 100 words.  Here are some photos to top it off.  Hope to see you again soon Manitoba family & friends!

Piece of the Berlin Wall…who’da thought in Manitoba?!  Mennonite Heritage Village Steinbach, MB
Keith and Renée performing at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, MB.
Grand Beach – Look at that powdery sand and the endless water…yes, this is in Manitoba!
Enjoyed time at my brother’s cottage with paddle-boating and swimming off his pontoon boat.
Summer’s not summer without a campfire, and a big one at that!
