Strawberry Pickin’

So apparently Elli had never been strawberry picking.  So Scott & Julie promised to take her sometime this year.  So Scott arranged for us to go picking…on one of the hottest days of the year at a time when the shade on the patch was gone!  Then he ended up not going b/c he got a tow job to Massillon.

So Mom, Rhett & I took Elli and Emmy Jo to the garden so they could pick for the very first time.  Elli said she liked it.  She didn’t like getting a hold of the mushy ones.

I didn’t think Emmy would pick any, but she ended up getting a couple.  This is her first one:

Memorial Day ‘11

This year Memorial Day was so hot!  The day began with our first strawberry harvest of the season (actually, ever).  Mom, Scott & I picked three buckets of berries.

We had a really nice cookout for lunch. Then we all hit the pool for the first time this summer.  Emmy loved it.
