Strawberry season is here!

Sydney has been mentioning since last April..."I've got an idea!  Let's go pick strawberries!"
Each time I've had to break it to her that strawberry picking season is over.  Sometimes she took it well other times...well...I'm sure you can imagine her reaction.

Yesterday it began and today we were there, buckets in hand, ready to fill them to the top!

Well maybe ALL of us weren't ready.  Scott suffered a very minor cut to his elbow at school today and apparently it was very painful and his arm needed to be elevated and held at a specific height.  So between the whimpers and Sydney holding up and yelling at the top of her lungs, "The best strawberry in the world!!" after she picked each and everyone of her strawberries, I'm sure we were quite a sight.

At some point he couldn't resist yelling like Sydney (and I think his arm was tired of holding up the other one :o)) 

This week's haul gave us 9.6 pounds of sweetness...let's eat!
