It's strawberry season in Nashville!

This might be the first year that some berries got in the bucket and not just in the mouth

Fun at the berry patch climbing "Bear Mountain"

We missed you, F & Q!  


Little pizza chefs

Mmmm...strawberry yogurt stars.  I knew we'd get some goodies from all that hard work at the patch.

What a great season, Cubs!  Let's hope the real Chicago Cubs can do as well this season.

Ice cream cones for breakfast?  What a treat!

Final baseball game of the season!

Cooling down at the water table.  Nashville is hotter than Florida.
