Going Green

After recovering from our experiences at the Danish American house, we set off for South Dakota.  However, we had no idea how incredibly boring Minnesota is.  I promptly fell asleep and was awoken a while later by the feeling of the car slowing down.  I dazedly looked around and found myself in Blue Earth, Minnesota.  What’s in the small town of Blue Earth that could send this road trip on a detour?  I think you’ll agree with me that it was well worth it to stop.

Weston looks so small compared to the Jolly Green Giant!

They stole his green bean!  (What’s a Westary blog post without a wildly inappropriate comment?)

I know sometimes it’s hard to justify stopping somewhere random when you have a destination and a schedule, but if you ever find yourself smack dab in the middle of Minnesota, definitely stop and visit the Jolly Green Giant!  It’s worth it!
