pumpkin patch



we took a family trip to the pumpkin patch today. or what is, apparently, a standard pumpkin patch around here- a field of pre-picked pumpkins lined up in rows. we've tried a new one every year and they're all equally lame. where can you find the real deal? where there are orchards and apple cider and pumpkins still on the vine and hay rides? i realize it's the desert, but come on! this is one less thing to hold up against las vegas*...oh, i haven't told you, have i? we're moving to las vegas! bevie accepted a clerkship starting in september, so we'll be packing up and heading to the real desert mid-summer. we're mostly excited, but dreading the actual move and selling the house and starting over.

*my sil just posted about their recent pumpkin patch trip and the sight of the dead fields made me cringe. i immediately thought, "this is what we'll be doing next year...ooh." until today when i realized utah isn't much better and there are no real pumpkin patches anymore.

Dugan and I lived in vegas for a little while. Let us know if you have any questions. Where to live gets a little tricky. Many neighborhoods go from ghetto to not ghetto in a few blocks. Vegas was a really good and fun experience for us. If you are the spontaneous type it is much better then SLC.
