Happy Father's Day to our Dad!!
(This is a pic of our dad from his birthday a couple years ago or maybe this is just a regular Saturday night....not sure)

Dad we love you so much! You are totally the coolest Dad (that goes without saying) and absolutely hilarious! But more then that you have help raised Kristen and I to be such strong, smart and independent women. Thank you for ALL that you have done and for being such a wonderful father to us. We love you SO very much!!

And in honor of both Father's Day & Mother's Day, mom and dad came into town for the weekend. Saturday mom, K, and I went to the Spa to enjoy just a little pampering and girl time. After that we baked a peach pie and then got ready for a crawfish boil!! For those who are not familiar a crawfish boil is LOADS of fun. Our family LOVES New Orleans and cajun/creole food. So, after cooking everything in a bunch of spices we throw everything on a table covered with newspaper. The feast includes crawfish, shrimp, sausage, potatoes, and corn on the cob. Then you just dig in with your hands, drink alcohol and have fun! (it isn't for everyone, K's bf got to see that first hand...he was SUCH a good sport!)

Our parents ordered crawfish straight from New Orleans and had them delivered Saturday. Below are a few pics from Saturday, but once we started eating I stopped taking I only have PRE-crawfish boil. Oh well - it was delicious!!

We made a peach pie for the weekend! I may not like pie, but I do like baking them with my mom and sis.

We had the table for the crawfish boil all set up out in the garage.

The beverage station, we made Bahama Mama's...yum!

I had place settings with a napkin, crawfish boil bib (the girls wore them, the men didn't want to), and Mardi Gras beads!

The crawfish!! I know, not appetizing to everyone, but it is seriously delicious.

What a great weekend!
