Last Saturday was our big annual crawfish boil. We have been doing this for 9 straight years, and it’s always so much fun. Plus, it brings so many people together who wouldn’t normally see each other. Old friends somehow always manage to show up year after year, and this boil is the only time we see some of them.
As has been typical in many past years, we were worried about the weather leading up to boil day. However, as always seems to happen, the rain didn’t affect us at all. It ended up being a really nice day. The boys had so much fun, even before anyone got here.
People started arriving just after 11 and Kenny had the first batch out on the tables about an hour and a half later. He boiled a total of 191 pounds in five and a half batches. He also got some help in running his cleaning station; the kids loved it, and he was more than happy to let them do it!
We had about 60 people show up. Scott and Jacque even came with Colin, who turned 9 weeks on boil day. He took a little nap in my arms while Jacque opened the gift we got him. So sweet!
Many thanks to all of those who were able to make it. We really do look forward to hosting this event every year and hope to continue it for many more years to come!
