The grass is always greener...

...when you actually have grass!  When we found out we were moving to Santa Fe, we joyously got rid of our lawn mower.  Lawncare is definitely on the bottom of our list of how we want to spend our time.  Now we have a gravel yard, front and back.  Easy peasy to take care of.  On Friday Kyle and I wanted to go to the temple, so we took our kids to our friend's home in Albuquerque.  They have a grass yard, front and back.  The kids squealed with joy and went straight to the back yard to play, with one word escaping their lips: GRASS!!!

My poor kids.

(Albuquerque isn't very green by any means, but I think they have less restrictions on planting grass and they are allowed the real deal if they want it...lush and green and soft on the toes.  Lots more grass than you see here in Santa Fe.)
