Annual Crawfish Boil

Today was our annual crawfish boil.  We love spending the day cooking up mudbugs and visiting with friends old and new.  Every year our only regret is that there just doesn't seem to be enough time to fully catch up with everyone.  

We've enjoyed looking back at our boils over the years-- first as a dating couple, then as a married couple, then as an expecting couple, then as new parents, and now as a bit more seasoned parents.  We announced our engagement at a crawfish boil.  We revealed we were expecting Alyssa at a crawfish boil.  We celebrated Matthew's first birthday at a crawfish boil.  It is our way of celebrating the goodness of life, year after year.  

And this year, we had a lot to celebrate-- life is so good!  We missed those that couldn't make it, and are so thankful that those that could joined us to celebrate the goodness!

In lieu of a bounce house this year, we had tball.
It was great fun, but caused one kid to go for 3 stitches.
