Learning, exploring, having fun… what more could you ask for? The assiniboine park zoo has undergone massive renovations and is now open with their new exhibit - Journey to Churchill. We went last week with my dad, and he ever so generously bought us a family membership. On sunday we woke up and decided to go again - this time with Tyler. There are things to do for all ages, and the park really is stunning. I haven't seen the polar bears in the water yet though, which will definitely be a highlight.
Winnipeg sometimes has a bad reputation amongst cities and places to live, but in recent months (and years) it feels like it is on the up and up. Some of our other favourite fall things to do include:
- a maze in corn, we went last year
- stocking up on harvest veggies at the st. norbert farmers market
- the manitoba museum - great for kids! We like it even more than touch the universe, which is designed for kids. Soren loves the displays and learning about history.
- shelmerdines, especially when they start their fall 'halloween fun zone'. We went last year as one of our first outings as a family of four
- Kidspot at waverly church. If you are in Winnipeg this is a great (free) outing that is open five mornings a week. It's like a massive indoor playground - perfect when the air is too chilly to play outside
- picking pumpkins at Schwabe Pumpkins on henderson hwy. Super cute place! Here's some shots from last year
- fall suppers
- fort whyte - we haven't been for awhile, and it's so pretty in the fall
- pineridge hollow - I've heard great things about this place, but never been! The decor looks so pretty.
We are also excitedly awaiting the opening of the new Canadian Human Rights Museum, and I managed to get free preview tickets for this weekend. So there you have it, our fall 'bucket list', of sorts. If you have suggestions to add please let me know:)
