Crawfish Day

Today we had our annual extended family crawfish boil.  Some even had new outfits to recognize such an important event.  There was plenty of help with the washing and purging of the main dish.

Two boys, a water hose, and a tub of live crawfish.  Makes for great entertainment.

Everyone seemed to have a great time while consuming all the crawfish, potato’s, corn, and sausage they could.  The birthday girl seemed to enjoy the day also.

We caught up with our friends at Ameristar RV park in Vicksburg, MS for the night.  We’re to Arkansas tomorrow…..jc


  1. What I'd give to try that...never ever had a crawlfish. Darling birthday girl! Happy trails to Arkansas...

  2. I think you have to grow up eating crawfish to appreciate them. Obviously, I did not grow up with them. :(

  3. I have tried to develop a liking for those little critters.... but it did not happen. Must be what Judy and Emma said, must grow up with it.

    Looks like you are on the road....can't wait to hear about it.

  4. What a great family event....thanks for sharing...Horst
