It was obvious that I was going to revisit Carberry someday considering I'd spent most of my last Canada trip there with Lucy! It had been 4 years since I left and in that time so much had changed it was so crazy. I planned to stay with Jenna in her new country home with her fiancé Dave and little Jordanna who I was dying to meet. I was so excited to see them and everyone else I had known there.
Jenna, Brittany and Jordie kindly drove to Winnipeg to pick me up which I was so grateful for. After a long awaited catch up we headed for supper and then wedding dress shopping. Can you guess the theme of my trip to Manitoba lol? Jenna was due to get married and I was so excited to help her chose the dress, which we successfully found! We headed on the long drive back to Carberry!
During the time there I met her lovely fiancé Dave, hung out with her mum Karen, her dead Jean, her brother Taylor and her grandparents. It was awesome to see everyone again and catch up after so long. We went on long walks in the countryside, went to the fireworks display, Jenna's dads huge backyard bonfire, The Carberry fair and I got to catch up Erin some friends.
I met up with my old buddy Gregg and we had some beers as we off roaded through the woods and headed to the new casino. We had some drinks, food and cocktails at the casino before heading back home. It was so awesome to catch up with him again and even though I only had 5 days there I managed to do a lot. We even set up Jordies 3rd birthday in the garage and had a huge gathering with a lot of familiar faces including Camrean and her new baby and my late friend Dales mom Loreta and his brother Dallas. It was a great evening of catch ups. The day before I left I got to hang out at my old home- Kim and Evans place, with Kim, Abbie and all grown up Hayden! It was amazing to see him so grown up having known him since he was born. They gave me the nicest card and pressy (a canada drinking flask) before I left too. We had down wine (not the kiddies obviously just me and Kim lol) and played with the newborn kittens while watching the kids on the trampoline. We talked about me coming back for harvest and I thought never say never. I had such a great time in 2010 so who knows. My time back in Carberry was short but certainly sweet and I couldn't thank Jenna enough for having no me to stay, showing me a great time, taking me to the airport and being one of my greatest friends no matter the distance.
Can't wait to see them all again. Thanks everybody for being awesome xx
