We are sitting in the Minneapolis/St Paul airport at 8:30 a.m. getting ready to head home. Didn’t get a chance to write a thing on this four-day turn around trip for Dad’s 100th birthday party as we were so busy we just didn’t sit down except when we fell into bed exhausted.
Lets get started with an over view our trip. Easy drive to the airport…comparatively…as LAX is always a mess. Fell asleep on the plane and arrived ready to roll. In the snow of course.
We stayed over night in Minneapolis and the headed hour on Saturday morning for Clara City, Minnesota 110 miles to get to Dad’s place. We arrived after picking up 10 bags of chips, 120 fresh baked buns, soft drinks for the party. Dad was ready to play cards as we entered the room but first hugging the great grand kids.
We ate dinner with Dad and then Libby and Risa headed to their room and I headed out with brother Dave and Kathy and slept overnight at their lake home.
Sunday: Party Day! Sister Connie and her family and Brother Roger and Debbie had the whole affair organized and by 2 p.m. in the afternoon, 100+ people where congratulating Dad(100 years old) and Aunt Ruthie(91 years old). It was a joyful occasion.
Its time to get on the plane heading back to LA. Great party. Congratulations Dad on your 100th and 91st Aunt Ruth.
