crawfish

Last weekend we had a crawfish boil with our family.  It was a lot of fun!  In the past we’ve just bought them already boiled, but this year we did it ourselves.  By “we” I mean Brent and Johnny, and they did a great job.  I just took the photos as usual. The kids loved checking them out.

Everyone enjoyed eating them.  They were spicy and delicious and we had a lot of them.  You can’t take photos and peel crawfish at the same time so I had to put my camera down for a while.

Here’s a pic I scanned in of Johnny showing Mason how to eat crawfish ten years ago when he was three.

So I made sure to get a photo of Mason and his Uncle Johnny with their crawfish again.

easter egg hunt with cousins

We had a really fun weekend and I took lots and lots of photos.  Here are just a handful of the littlest cousins.  This Easter egg hunt made me happy because it was held during some really pretty light!

i heart faces: pets

Don’t ask me how I got Maisy to sit still long enough for a photo.  It’s rare, but every now and then she does calm down.  You just have to be ready when the moment is right!

scavenger hunt: apr 24

Happy Easter to everyone!  I’ve taken a ton of photos this weekend from a crawfish boil, an egg hunt, and a photo shoot with my two year old niece, but I’ve barely had time to even go through them all.  I’m going to be very busy this week.  Here’s this week’s hunt photos:

1. reflections – This one’s from the archives and I know I’ve shared it before, but I love Mason’s look of excitement when I asked if he could stick his head out the window while we were going 60 mph down the highway.  By the way, I wasn’t driving!

2. guess what this is – I know not everyone enjoys boiled crawfish like we do in Louisiana so you may not have seen them like this before.  Is there anyone else out there who loves them?

3. what’s inside – Brinkley’s looking to see if there’s anything inside this patch of flowers that she might be looking for.

4. playtime – The cousins played a lot of baseball yesterday.

5. lawn and garden – Here’s something that I found growing in my lawn.

easter

Happy Easter to everyone!  For the Easter theme at Live Every Moment and Photo Feature Friday, I chose the beautiful cross that is in my mother in law’s yard.

It’s been the nicest spring I can remember.  I hope it stays around a while longer.  I’m so not ready for those hot and humid days.
