Portage la Prairie - May 2016

After planting our lawn at home, we took off to visit our Prarie family on May 5. We left at about 6:30 am, checked on our chickens at Jimmy's and headed up highway 20 to Colville. We are taking Kelly her birds-eye maple dresser and mirror as well as a tote of dolls etc.
We spent the night at Medicine Hat, AB Home Express( motel 6). We got to Kelly's at around 6 pm.
So great to see them! Sophia ran to Grandpa and gave him a big hug? Much to my surprise and delight Kate came to me with a big hug!
On Mother's Day Kelly gave me a pair of Stella & Dot sparkle earrings. Then it was off to the snake pits. 
There were hundreds of people there to see the garder snakes and babies come out of their dens after winter. Sophia had a great time holding babie snakes...Kate touched them a bit...but no holding. We stopped at Stonewall for a burger on the way home, and ice cream for the girls.
We shopped in Winnipeg, got my farm sink at IKEA, ate at the Indian Buffet, went to Costco..
On Saturday we went to the Art Show at Sophia's school...very cute!
Later we took the girls to Island Park to play. Ryan made his Greek  chicken dinner for us, it was delicious!
Sunday morning we took off for home at about 9am. We let Sophia open her birthday gift before we left....a Luke Skywalker light saber. She loved it!
