cooperEarlier this week Patrick and I were invited to a brand new restaurant – Cooper. It’s one of Kieran’s restaurants and he invited us to a sneak preview.

The décor is pretty spectacular. Apparently most of it came from Ireland. Kieran said it’s meant to be like an Irish manor house and it is. The food was very good. The artichoke dip was a little spicy for me – but I’m pretty wimpy. I had the walleye sandwich and it was good. The French fries were excellent – though I was very strong and didn’t have too many. Which was good since then I had room for dessert. They had sneak peeks of apple crumble and some kind of chocolate molten cake – which was super, super yummy.

St Louis Park is pretty far for us to drive – but it was worth it.

Over the weekend the girls and I went to Nelson’s pumpkin patch in Litchfield. It’s our second annual trip. We love it.

Grandpa and I love the pumpkin chucker flinger thinger – a trebuchet they use to catapult pumpkins into the lake. I have included 2 video because it’s so much fun to watch.

The girls loved the baby kittens and the carts. We have a picture of the carts; they are kind of like soapbox cars. You ride them down the hill. They were fun.

We took a hay ride aroudn the fields. The girls got to swing in the hayloft, which looked like fun too. They fed animals, had hippity hop races, climed up hay stacks, participated in the farm olympics and more. It’s treally kind of amazing how many very simple thing they have at the farm and how much fun a kid can have. We thought we’d be there for 2 hours; we were there for 4.

On the way home we popped in to see the world’s largest ball of twine and the the girls’ greatgrandparents’ grave in Darwin.
