Crawfish Festival

A few weekends ago, we headed down to the river for the annual Ragin’ Cajun Crawfish Festival. It’s always a good time! This year we decided to take the kiddos along, and they seemed to really enjoy it!

The crawfish coming straight off the truck, dumped into the cooker, and then right into the buckets to serve! DELISH!! The kiddos got a big kick out of watching the process.

Surprisingly, the mudbugs were GINORMOUS!! And absolutely yummy! Just the right amount of spiciness!

Ethan decided that he wanted to give it a try. So, Chris taught him “Crawfish 101”.

This little guy was scampering across the concrete as far away from the cooker as possible!

MEMPHIS!

After we hung around a while and indulged in some crawfish, we walked down to the Peabody so that LK could see the ducks. She loves the ducks.

Gray had never seen the ducks.. and probably had never seen a fountain either. He was amazed!

He loved getting to see the ducks! LK always loves visiting the Peabody! I think Daddy better start saving up for her future wedding! I see the Peabody and an Elvis impersonator in our future!! ;)

After we got home, everyone was beyond tired!! I couldn’t resist keeping Gray up for a few pics though!

We had such a great time at the Crawfish Festival! Now that we know that the kids like it, we’ll definitely take them from now on!! I LOVE crawfish season! Makes me remember all the crawfish boils that we had for sorority functions at Ole Miss! Always fun!
