I bought a priceless memory today for $17.50. I took mom strawberry picking. She always enjoys the 20 minute drive north. Everything is beautiful, the trees, the river, how the clouds ice the mountains.

 It took us less than an hour to pick the 14lb you can see in "being mom" in the photo album. After lunch we washed, hulled, and put them in the freezer. Now every time we have these strawberries in the coming months Mom will remember the enjoyment of going to pick strawberries. We can never have enough pleasant memories.
