I want to visit Red Wing! Who knew that the boot company was named for a town? This turns into a family expedition. Mike and I are the only two who can’t find shoes/boots to fit. (There’s a buy-2-get-1-free deal.) It’s HOT and humid. Doh! We’re in central Minnesota in early July! (Google Map; the trip summary page)

It's Hot! So we find ice cream, of course. (Fat Elvis is vanilla with peanut butter and banana - it was quite good. iPhone)
