We flew from Brunswick to Minneapolis today. We arrived about 5:00pm, picked up a rental car and headed to Aberdeen, SD. As we left the city, we changed plans and went directly to Pierre, SD. My oldest brother and his wife were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.
Friday, June 14
We had a “party bus” pick us up at our hotel, along with all my siblings and spouses. The bus had stopped at my brother’s to pick up his family and a couple relatives. We went to the Cattleman’s Club restaurant for dinner. We had amazing prime rib. We miss SD beef.
Then we all rode the bus to the Oahe Dam on the Missouri River. There we had a champagne toast and watched the sun set on the river.
Some of us continued the party at the American Legion which was on the Missouri River, but in town. Beautiful setting.

Today there was an open house at the Senior Center from 2-4 for Don and Linda’s 50th anniversary. Great to see some of our relatives, Linda’s relatives, and family friends. Then mostly family went to Don and Linda’s home for a catered BBQ dinner.
