Dream House and Strawberries

Dream House
For my Friday, I photographed a YMCA sponsored "Dream Home" being finished up this weekend.  This house is built each year by volunteers who donate their time and materials to build a new home for a needy family.  This is essentially a local "Extreme Home Makeover" in Northeast, OH.  Today, the house was being furnished and the designers were putting the final touches up in the house.  The house is being completed this weekend will have an open house next week.  At the end of the summer, the house will go to a lucky needy person with the key to the front door.

Strawberry Shortcake Eating Contest
This wasn't assigned to me but I decided I really wanted to go out and make some pictures anyways of the event.  As the title says, people gather and eat a ton of strawberry shortcake in two minutes.
