From one desert to another

Even though Utah is technically considered "the desert," after living in Arizona for several years I personally consider Utah a lush, green oasis. The girls do, too. I mean, we actually have a backyard that they can *gasp* PLAY in! It's quite the novelty right now, and our particular backyard is actually the topic of a whole 'nother blog.

We do have a desert in our neighborhood though. Bria's elementary school is brand new this year and hasn't quite been finished. There's no grass, so of COURSE it is a desert. Every morning and afternoon while walking to school Chloe gets extremely excited and yells to the whole neighborhood, "There's the desert!!! I can SEE the DESERT!!!" And then, while we traipse across the dirt (aka "sand") she very carefully looks for scorpions. That's my Arizona girl.
