Wally & I, Art & Sandy drove out to Steinbach & enjoyed a delicious mennonite lunch of vareniki, schinka fleisch, kielki, farmer sausage & peach/saskatoon pie at MJ's Kafe. Brian & Janet met us at the Mennonite Heritage Village for a memorable time of browsing through the museum, with a short trip out to where Wally & Brian's grandpa Hiebert is buried as well.

The weather was stunningly gorgeous & we had a wonderful memory-making day together.
