California=no pumpkin pies?!

We arrived in sunny California on Saturday afternoon, welcomed by Dave and Sarah Anderson (nicest people ever) who helped us unload the truck and reminded us that Southern California really IS the best place to live. Our apartment is still in shambles (boxes everywhere) but I have big goals to unpack and organize everything by the end of the day, so we'll see.

Now sit back and relax and read this story cuz this involves all of you--->

Aaron and I discovered McDonalds pumpkin pies last winter, and have really come to love those little things. We had some in St. George on Friday night on our way down, but apparently that was going to be our last time because McDonalds in California don't even have them. (?????) Like this is seriously tragic. We went out last night to get some and the first McDonalds we went to said they didn't carry any pumpkin pies, but for some reason we thought it was just that one store. So we went through the drive-thru last night at another one and the girl over the speaker laughed at Aaron when he asked for 2 pumpkin pies and she said, "You must be looking for Jack In The Box." Secretly our response was, "Uhh, no way lady, we want pumpkin pies and we want them now!" We weren't about to go to another McDonalds just to be rejected again, so we concluded that McDonalds in California don't know what pumpkin pies are and drove home in shock.

So now I'm dying to know.....are pumpkin pies only in Utah or something??? Check your local McD's and leave me a comment! After I got home last night I couldn't help but do some Google research and apparently McDonalds has, or used to have, Banana Pies. Uhh, gross?? Anyways, the pumpkin pies are crazy good and deserve to be in every McDonalds...at least in the continental U.S.

Other than the fact that we won't be having pumpkin pies on a regular basis anymore, we're loving California so far and are taking advantage of this beautiful, beautiful, beautiful weather.
