"Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!"

Don't be too impressed. . .I have absolutely no idea how to pronounce that! But I DO know that it means "Let the Good Times Roll" in Louisiana-speak. (Okay, it's really French, but that's WAY outside my comfort zone.)


Our super cool neighbors, Dameian and Jerry, host a crawfish boil every spring. This is the first time we've ever been able to go, so we had to start with a little lesson. . .

Rip needed NO assistance with the nasty little buggers. He knew precisely the strategy. . .

The kiddos were more fascinated with the live crawfish than the cooked ones. . .they loved getting sticks and trying to get the crawfish to grab on with their claws. Well, all the kids but Mason. Look at the horror on his little face. . .

Admittedly, tearing the heads off crawfish isn't exactly my thing. I have a phobia of any meat "on the bone," and the full skeleton of a crawfish definitely falls into that category. So I stayed close to the table with chips, cookies, and hot dogs. Me and The Boo.

We had a great afternoon hanging out with our neighborhood friends and letting the kids run wild. I may not have loved the main course, but I absolutely loved the party!

  1. Thank goodness you don't know how to pronounce it, b/c when I read the title I thought you got all "French as a second language" on me! Ha! Looks like such an awesome time with your neighbors. I'm soooo with you on the main dish though. I would have set them free on told them to run for the Texas hills before they were boiled (?)! Poor things! Cookies, cake, chips, junk, junk and more junk...ABSOLUTELY! And girlie, I'm loving your darker hair! Lovely! The boys are darling...Brody is getting so much hair! Love it! Hope you are doing well! Love ya!
