Mother's Day in Cajun Country

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.

Looks like a lovely day. And I LOVE the guilt-free eating that comes with pregnancy. I hope you enjoyed.

Take care,

Can I send my boys to your house - they would have loved all of that fun!

What?!? Austin can really eat that much crawfish? The most I can eat by myself now is 3-4 pounds and I'm stuffed! Must be because he's a teenage guy. That looks like my kind of Mother's Day...Jake is from Cali and does not eat crawfish and thinks it's disgusting, he just doesn't know what he's missing out on!

Happy Mother's Day!

Holy Cow! That is a lot of food. I have never had crawfish before.

Looks like you guys had an amazing time!

I love the crawfish kissy face :)

I just found your blog from Stop Staring... My family just had a huge crawfish boil when we were visiting Lafayette. Looks delish! I wish Utah had the same kind of food that Louisiana has!!!

I'm so grateful in seeing families that are still happy. They are very rare now.
