Millions of Peaches…

Hey everyone.  Dan here, pinch-hitting for Beth in the blogging department.
Everyone knows that in large parts of the country peaches come from a can and they were put there by a man in a factory downtown.  However, Colorado is one of those states where you can get fresh peaches without having to ship them across state lines.  We’ve only been here for two years, but I already look forward to peach season in August, when Colorado peaches are harvested from the Grand Junction area and begin appearing in supermarkets around the state.  As soon as I see them on shelves, I start buying them by the armload.  Maybe I’ve bought into the marketing campaign, but for some reason, Colorado peaches seem to taste way better than their California counterparts, which fill the produce bin the rest of the summer.  

Sadly, now that fall is here, peach season is coming to an end, and I’ll have to wait almost a year for them to come back.  Before they completely disappeared from the store, though, I managed to buy one last batch.  Unfortunately, I had to share them with baby Keira, since Beth decided to take a box with her when she went to visit her sister.  Apparently, Keira loves peaches almost as much as I do.  I hope she appreciates the sacrifice I made so that she could have some delicious Colorado peaches.  Sharing is hard.  In conclusion, if I had my little way, I’d eat peaches every day. I’m thinking about movin’ to the country.
