Crawfish & Beads (everywhere)

This weekend we called a bunch of friends over for a good ole fashioned crawfish boil. The weather was perfect, and the kids played outside ALL day – they were all sleeping before 8:00pm.

The girls enjoyed helping Daddy wash the crawfish before their hot bath!

We sat outside all day and just enjoyed the company and the weather – the kids loved playing with the leftover beads from last weeks parade.

With so many beads left over, we decided to have our own parade down our driveway. All the kids snatched some form of transportation and lined up at the end of pave. They hung beads from their bikes, wagons, tractors, scooters, etc. It was precious. They came down the driveway, and they were so proud to throw us their beads! They went back and lined up 3 more times to “do it again!”

We had beads EVERYWHERE – in the grass, on the porch, on the patio, down the driveway, and under the carport…but the kids had a blast, and that’s all that counts, right!?

These are some of my favorite days – just sitting at home surrounded by good company and enjoying life :)

Mardi Gras Mambo

We attended our first parade of the season this weekend! This was Easton’s very first parade (last year we left him at home with a cough). He just stared at everything going on around him, and he loved to watch the floats, bands, and excitement.

The girls had a blast playing with their friends, eating too much cotton candy, and dancing to the music in the street!

This was the first year Kennedy did not ask to be held during the parade to get closer to the floatĀ – my big girl wanted to stay standing with her friends and catch beads and throws on her own. When did she grow up :(
