Strawberry fields forever...

Abby and Maddy had their first "taste" of berry picking. Frankly, I
think they were surprised to see how much effort it really took to
get fruit. After a while, Maddy just plopped herself in the middle of
one of the plants and just crammed strawberries into her mouth in the
arms-length radius around her. She's the toddler equivalent of a
clear cutter. With a red stained seat to boot. Our efforts were
further hindered by Abby insisting on showing me every single
strawberry she picked for "redness approval." This really kept the
overall harvest down, but once we were done, there were two very
satisfied little girls. And one very satisfied husband when the
strawberry cake showed up later.
