In Honor of The Super Bowl

We lived in Lafayette Louisiana for about a year and 1/2. We were about 2 hours from New Orleans. So, in honor of the Saints making it to the Superbowl for the first time ever, I thought I'd share some pictures of my kids first ever Craw fish Boil, and some shots in The Big Easy. Enjoy. And Geaux Saints!

Craw Fish Boil:

I just knew my little girls, who love all animals, would never eat Craw fish
after seeing them alive, then watching them get boiled.

But Kyle, and the girls Loved them!
(I'm thinking either Zach wasn't with us that day,
or didn't like it too much. He was my pickiest eater.)

Real Southern eating!

New Orleans:
Me with John's sister Pat, who came for a visit,
on the Trolley!
Brother & Sister in the Big Easy!

With our friend Suzy, from Michigan.
Having fun in the City.

Lexi and Erica!
Beautiful Girls in a Beautiful City!!

I took this one of John and our kids, pictured with Suzy,
on Bourbon Street! In the French Quarter.

The girls showing off their Balloon hats a local vendor made for them
on the streets downtown!

Are You Ready for Some Football:

The Super Dome where the Saints go Marching in!

Kyle was a Saint for Halloween that year!
(The only time he could be considered a Saint!) :)
One of the girls getting in on the act!
Who Dat?!

Thank you, Starry, for sharing these memories with us! :)

And, I think I would like some real Southern eating! ;-)

Great pics! I went to a crawfish boil, but could not bring myself to eat any, and I love southern cooking ... catfish, yes; crawfish, just can't do it.
