Not everyone's typical Mother's Day

So, for Mother's Day weekend, we went to Fayetteville for a Crawfish Boil. Its kind of a yearly tradition for my sister and her brother-in-law in celebration of their birthdays. And its fun. I adopted Angie's in-laws years ago as super cool people to know, and when I met Rob, he gladly adopted them as well. They live in the boondocks, like you have to cross a creek in your car to get there (poor little Honda) and there are chickens and cows, pigs and a flamingo? It was fabulous weather for sitting outside all day and partaking in an hourly dumping of crawfish, corn, potatoes and garlic all boiled together in perfect harmony with cajun spices.

I think it might have been the best day of his life
The next morning, Angie hosted a brunch with fabulous Amish casserole and other yummies and we gave our Mama/Grammy a Sephora gift certificate. Sephora gift certificates are the best present. Always a crowd pleaser.

A side note: my pregnant self wasn't entirely up for mounds of crawfish, I had a couple, but mostly corn and garlic smeared on a cracker. The past two Crawfish boils I've made it to I've been pregnant. I promise to stay fetus free for the next one so that I can really do a Crawfish Boil right.
