Birthday Crawfish Boil

Last weekend, we threw a huge crawfish boil and birthday bash to celebrate our birthdays.

Crawfish festivals and parties are huge around here, so most people will eat these mud bugs several times in the Spring. John and H's best friend Mark wait anxiously for the first round of crawfish to come out of the boiler.

My Gram was there double- fisting it, even it if it was Coke.

Matt was there with his girlfriend, even if I managed to take an awful photo of them with her half in the shade and half in the sun. I'd promised to take a better picture, but totally forgot.H cooked up some dogs and burgers for those (like me and all the kiddos) not inclined to eat crawfish.

H's mom was nice enough to host it at her house and help out with all the food preparation. She however wouldn't pose for a picture with us!

Our favorite cousins were there too- at least 4 out of 5 (one got in trouble that morning and couldn't come at punishment).

They had so much fun running around in the backyard and playing hide & seek or catch with the tennis ball.

Until too much rough-housing when they broke the glasses of one of the boys. H to the rescue before their grandma found out and we were all in trouble!

And our other-mother Dana made us some fabulous pastries as dessert- including this beautiful red Velvet cake that was devoured in a few minutes.


This stuff (and the night time one) is saving my life right now!
