Parkers First Crawfish Boil

Get ready for picture overload...Saturday we went over to the McCallon's (Adam's second family, Kari's inlaws, my friends, Matt's family) House for a crawfish boil. Megan came in from New Orleans and Heather, Shane and Hannah came in from Austin. It was so much fun to be able to spend time with them and catch up. Because of this, I give you Pictures from Parker's First Crawfish Boil...Shane and Hannah enjoying her "animals". They were snails and rolliepollies!Doesn't that look good? The first batch was weak for Shane...They spiced up the next batch for me!It took forever for the water to boil. However, it is an 80 quart (I think) pot. So obviously it would take a while.Yay! It's boiling!Aunt Squirt and Parker enjoying the sun. Notice Parker's cute sandals that I finally have a picture of!Heather is expecting a little boy in August and just loved Parker. But of course....who doesn't.Megan enjoying a cookie! They were good. I dunno who made them, but when I walked in and saw them, I cheated and ate 2. Shhh don't tell.Parker likes chewing on his hands and fists.Uncle Matt cheesin it for the camera and patiently awaiting crawfish!Here is the group. Matt off on the side, Adam, Kari and Parker, Megan, Heather, and the back of Caleb.
Megan and Heather - I get such great poses of Megan don't you think.And great poses of Aunt Squirt!
Caleb, Adam and ShaneHere's Adam...

We loved being outside for a few hours enjoying good food and friends and family. I got a little sunburnt on my cheeks and nose and I know Shane got burnt, but I dunno if anyone else did. Thanks goodness Parker didn't! I didn't think to pack sunscreen and it was pretty overcast. Bad Mommy.....However, Thanks McCallons for being Adam's second family. I love getting invited to family parties such as these!


This is just a quick video of Parker talking. Sorry for all the talking in the background and for the videoing quality. I was not so good at it the other night.

When I served in Silsbee, I went to a crawfish boil and got pressured into sucking the head of a crawfish. I did it but I wasn't too happy about it. I know it's not a big deal to y'all but for a Westerner, that was big-time bravery!

Love Parker's noise. Too cute!

Shane said...
