Crawfishing For Memorial Day

P1011265

This weekend was full of festivals in The Big Easy. We went to St. Aug’s Crawfish Festival and lawd we ate so much stuff that, I get full just thinking about it!   The turnout was huge and the food was great…mud bugs were well-seasoned and as long as my dear hubby peeled them for me, I kept eating away ( I love crawfish…just hate to peel the boogers.)

That line of folks there were waiting for snoballs and when I saw them, I thought of S23 and how she misses snoballs so this one’s for you chick,

P1011279It wasn’t all that great though, it turned into mush…don’t they know you’re suppose to use really fine ice for a great snoball?   This one baby was soooo cute eating his though that, I just had to take his pic..P1011281Look at that mouth!!!! He is loving it!!

Naturally, the brass band came out and that started a second line….some of the band seniors at the school have a brass band and they came out and played for us….that was really cool because, they had about 100 bikers that came to the festival and many were from Ohio and California who had never seen anything like that so, they were able to witness some NOLA flava!  

 Every one of these young men received musical scholarships to college.  The young man to the right playing trumpet graduated Valedictorian of his class and received numerous scholarships…he’s going to Yale. You go boys!!!P1011278P1011275

 After we left, we passed along the bayou to see what The Bayou Boogaloo Festival  was like but, it was waaay too crowded so, we headed home.  The Greek Festival was this weekend also but, I went two years ago and spent most of my time waiting in line for food so, I don’t hit that one anymore. 

All in all, this weekend was really nice, we got to hang out together as a family (which was great because you know, teenagers always want to go by their friends house..*sigh*)  I still haven’t seen Star Trek yet though..I’m going, I’m going Dereck.

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!

  1. I don’t care if the snowball was mushy, I would have ate it! I just would have had to make a run and get some condensed milk to throw on top of it. I’m wondering if Tyler has had a snowball ever????? Maybe I can buy a machine somewhere and make us some in the summer. I just have to have that cream. LOL! And I like crawfish too. Seems like my old jobs in La alway had crawfish boils in the spring as the family picnic. I miss those!
