End of Easter Trip, Minnesota, March 2016

When everyone headed home to their families for their own Easter Dinner on Saturday evening, Libby and I stayed with with Dad on Easter Sunday and had Swedish Meat Balls at the dining room in the the Assisted Living.  Really good food. 

Easter evening Dad only wanted a piece of toast for dinner…at 98 your appetite isn’t as good as it was once.  Libby and I thought that at least one of the three restaurants would be open at 5 pm in Clara City but alas, every thing was locked up closed.  A 18 mile drive to a McDonald’s in Montevideo was our best choice and the place was full of hungry people.

We left Clara City at about 930 a.m. on Monday for Minneapolis and our flight home. A huge storm stretched from mid-South Dakota to Los Angeles and the full plane bounced all the way home.  Overall not bad at all.

Made it home near to 9 p.m. and the cats couldn’t wait to see us.  Great trip. Left Dad tired but happy.

Easter Party in Minnesota…March 26, 2016

The big group of the Grussing family descended on the Clara City Assisted Living Apartment of Fred Grussing…best guess 35 total and spend the day with Dad.  1 pm Dinner/lunch with home made sausage, ham, turkey and every side dish imaginable and of course desserts of all  kinds.  A Easter egg hunt and card games.  Great family get together.

Easter Trip to Visit Dad

We decided a couple months ago that it was time to visit Dad(98 years young) in Minnesota over the Easter Holiday.  With Dad now living in the Assisted Living Facility that we have not seen yet, we are looking forward to visiting him and all of the brothers and sister along with our nephews and nieces that are coming to the Easter lunch on Saturday.

We are flying out and renting a car.  Snow is on the way but they say it will miss West Central Minnesota.  Hope so, as I have lost my blizzard driving skills. 

We are about packed and getting excited.  More to come.
