End of an Era

In June, Arthur’s Aunt Erna passed away after a fulfilling life. She was an amazing woman who loved God and influenced many people in very positive ways. Arthur was able to join all of his cousins and many other relatives at the funeral in Winnipeg to celebrate a wonderful woman who will leave a big hole in the family.

Summer in Canada

First stop: Vancouver
6 hours!

The big highlight of the summer was going to Canada for Ian’s wedding. Arthur traveled on a week and a half ahead of the rest of the family because of Aunt Erna’s death. On their way to Winnipeg, Phyllis and the boys meet with Phyllis’ family for a few hours in Vancouver. We had lunch together and walked on the marina.

Final Destination: Manitoba
3 Weeks

Angela and Ian’s wedding in Winnipeg was a good time for all the cousins to get together.

Weekend on Lake of the Woods
Near Kenora

We spent a weekend with Arthur's extended family at the cabin on Lake of the Woods.

Fun with some of Uncle Gerald's toys!

We were also able to have good times with great friends
like Matthew (below)
who used to be our neighbor in Winnipeg!


One of the last things we did before we left to come back to Vientiane was to eat icecream with the newlyweds.
