On Easter weekend here in the south, I think just about every family in the bayou has crawfish. After church we visited with Mr. Cowboy's Grandmother and Aunt. Then we came home and went next door to eat crawfish with the in laws. Mr. Cowboy can down crawfish faster than anyone I have ever met. He can eat 10 lbs in no time. Grandma Touchet sat next to Mr. Cowboy, she is too funny. I think Cowpokette looked like her. What do you think? Similar? I think so. The kids always find ways to entertain themselves while the adults eat the spicy crawfish. Their is the trash can where all the eaten crawfish bodies are tossed! That posses for hours of fun. There are Louisiana mud puddles. Those are a guaranteed fun!! Nothing like mud between your toes. Then there are the big boy toys. The four wheeler rides! The kids love to ride with Paw Paw on the four wheelers. He is their favorite. The only two words you can really understand Cowpokette say are "Momma" and "Paw Paw". It's funny. And when Paw Paw is done giving rides, Cowpokette has no trouble getting her Dad to take her for a spin. What is it with men dressed in camo riding four wheelers that is so hot? And then you through in his daughter and sigh........it just melts me. And if the crawfish weren't enough for ya, and the entertainment wasn't good enough for ya, then you can always just stick your fingers in your ears and scream. Well, at least that is what Little Cowpoke did. Goof Ball. He was running around saying, "I can't hear you!" He got a small group of followers too. Monkey see Monkey do. It was too much fun, I tell ya. I think that we should do that more often. And if you don't feel like screaming, then you can just make funny faces. That works too. See, fun for the entire family! Gotta love southern crawfish boils. Then when all the food is gone and we run out of gas in the four wheelers, we just hang out and shoot the breeze. That is what I like. Adult conversation. A stay at home mom misses that from time to time. Can you tell that these two are related? Or this one? Or this one? I think they all have the same eyes and noses!! But that is just me. I guess that is what happens when you are family. You kinda look like each other. See I think Mr. Cowboy looks just like this next picture! Grumpy!! Whuahahahahahaaa! I crack myself up. Belle is much cuter than Mr. Cowboy. Oh dear, there I go again. Okay, I am sorry Mr. Cowboy. Not that he ever reads this. I have high speed Internet with slow speed husband. But we love him anyway. Here is Brodi dog doing his best Elvis impression. I love it when he does that. He has done that since he was little. And Mr. Cowboy took my camera from me and got a picture of me. I think I only have a handful of pictures of myself. I am normally behind the camera. I surely don't mind sharing the spotlight with my Cowpokette. Oh I could just squish her everyday. Well, I do, but not too much. But that is how it's done down here. Well, the crawfish boil and family stuff that is.
