Down here in South Louisiana we celebrate Mother's Day a little differently ; ) We had a crawfish boil. My Mom and Dad came over for the day and we boiled mud bugs. The girls had a good time taking pictures, there were over 190 taken on my camera.
We had 60 pounds of crawfish total, and this little ziploc bag was all that was left! Yeah, we are some pigs. I know Austin ate 10 - 15 pounds by himself. This is the sort of thing I eat until I am sick. We only eat it 3 or 4 times a year, they aren't cheap, so you have to get your fill when you get the chance lol
We also boiled potatoes, corn, onions, mushrooms, sausage and garlic. I ate half a head of garlic myself. Chad said I finally smell normal this morning : D lololol
My mom had also made two banana puddings for dessert. Let's just say I didn't bother eating dinner that night. I probably ate enough to last me the week. The kids had fun swimming and the guys watched golf. It was a very nice and relaxing Mother's Day.
The crawfish were HUGE, here is Savannah holding a couple up for the camera.
