Thanksgiving Point vs. Keukenhof

The three of us ventured down to Utah County on Friday night for the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point. Traci wanted to see the flowers, I went because she said there was going to be Dutch food there.

Though it was no Keukenhof (the royal tulip gardens in Holland), the gardens at Thanksgiving Point were quite nice. The weather was perfect and it was good to just be outside. When we finally reached the Dutch concession stand, I did however feel like I was back in Holland. I paid $2 for the tiniest bottle of lukewarm Cassis (black currant flavored soda). After I finished it, I walked over to a vending machine at bought a Sprite that was about three times as large for $1.50. We Americans sure are a thirsty bunch.
