Green? Check. Giant? Check? Jolly? Hard to tell…

Stopped by the Blue Earth, Minnesota, statue of the Jolly Green Giant just a bit ago, on the way from Springfield (Minn.) to Springfield, Iowa.

It was probably the hopping-est place we’ve been yet, the pictures are below. Two carloads of fellow road-travelers piled out from their similarly mud-encrusted rides to stretch their legs and take pictures. Truth be told, it was probably more fun to shoe-skate on the large, flat sheets of ice around the Giant than to actually climb between his legs and find out that he’s, well, neither he nor she…

You can also see some great pictures of the two Springfields, too: sporting the Band of Parents banner in front of the Minnesota town’s sign, and smack in the center of Iowa’s.

Stop by Google Maps to check out Springfield, Iowa, and then head over to Network for Good to support neuroblastoma research.
