Hey, guys. Well, it's once again my birthday and things have been busy. My folks, my brother, his girlfriend, and I headed to the Minnesota Zoo for the day, something none of us did in nearly 20 years. (Yesh!) We walked the entire park (although we took a carriage ride to the farm area) and got some lunch at Popeye's Louisiana-style restaurant. We tried to get into Coma Park afterwords, but the place was packed. (We left at 5:30 to get to the zoo at 10:00.) At least Megan got to see her giraffes.
So we stopped Eau Claire on the way back, did a little shopping (got a new fishing pole for a birthday present), and headed home. We were gonna stop at Norke Nook for a second time (we had breakfast in the one in Osseo (really good strawberry french toast.)) and get some pie, but we were all too tired.
Our Cocker Spaniel, Buddy, was a good boy and let my grandmother let him outside when he needed to. He's a good boy.
So now on my actual birthday, I'm just gonna rest up and see if I can get the next chapter of "Our Little Sister" up and running. I'm so close.
