Ray went to Winnipeg for 5 days to visit his dad, step mom, sister and brother (His mother went too....long story). Bless him he felt guilty for not running the Ottawa run with me so he ran a 10k in Winnipeg in the AIR FORCE RUN. It was a cause he believes a lot in so he was so excited when he called to tell me on Saturday that he would be running in it on Sunday morning. Here he is after his run
So for Monday he was flying in around 11 am so we planned a mini day date! First we went to THE DRAKE HOTEL We had never been before and sat on the patio (serves Breakfast and Lunch, there is a upstairs dining room as well). I liked how informal and unique it was before we even sat down.

HERE is the lunch menu
The Menu look pretty good, with some interesting things on it. I ordered a white sangria and ray got a coke in a glass bottle (he loves coke in a glass bottle for some reason).
The Sangria was pretty good....but it should be for $10 a glass! We ordered our food and enjoyed the sun and catching up since we hadn't seen each other in almost a week!

We then headed down to the DISTILLERY DISTRICT (We had no clue that is where we were going, I just wanted to go to a bakery that I had heard about and this is where we ended up!) It was a fantastic surprise to end up here!
It was quite the little hideaway in the middle of the city! There were cute art shops, sea food restaurants, bakery's and coffee shops! We walked around and did some window shopping while we looked for the bakery.
THE SWEET ESCAPE DISTILLERY and it was as cute as I thought it would be! They make all their own ice cream and I am sure you can imagine how please I was when I saw Red Velvet Ice Cream!!!! I ordered a small Red Velvet and Ray ordered a Small Root Beer Ice cream. We also got a sticky toffee pudding to go for later!!!!
|Our sweet treasures!|

|Ray was loving these pictures of city's all over the world. They were all over and we went into the gallery that they were from.|
THE BRICK STREET BAKERY was too many yummy things here!
BALZACS COFFEE it was such a adorable little place! There were too many choices! I love little coffee shops like this one!
