...and we enjoyed the fields of lilies in Neepawa.
Metal storage bins seem to have replaced the trademark grain elevators across the prairies...but I'm glad there are still a few of the original wooden structures left here and there.
My sister and brother-in-law (Jim and Kathy) live on a dairy farm...in potato country! The soil in their area is incredibly sandy and fertile...they are situated on an aquifer, so have no shortage of water...and it is the perfect spot for growing potatoes.
While we enjoyed family time on their yard, we watched the planes spraying the potato fields across the road.
We gathered at Jim and Kathy's for a few days before and after my niece's wedding...family from several states and provinces.
We even helped cook dinner one night...as the Manitoba sun was setting! It seems to stay light there forever...
...so you know these youngun's are up far too late...and pretty happy about it!
Emme and Spencer had a wonderful time with my Iowa nieces and nephews...they wondered why Megan always called Grandpa "Uncle Elmer" though!
...some of us even played in the water for awhile.
So if you are looking for the perfect spot for an outdoor wedding...you might want to consider a farm in southern Manitoba!
I know the perfect spot....not only do they host the wedding guests, but they entertain family from near and far for days before and after!
Enjoy the week that lies ahead...there is much to be done!
