Family Alive

Brian, Kristine, Analise, and Josiah Toone


24th May 2007

Another fun part of last weekend was our friend, Darryl’s crawfish boil.  Now, I spent a year and a half in Louisiana when I was in elementary school, so I know about crawfish.  And I used to eat them.  But Brian had never experienced this.  And of course, neither had Analise or Josiah. 

Analise loves seeing lobsters in tanks at the grocery store, so seeing big tubs of crawfish squirming around was really exciting.  There was another little girl about her age who had absolutely no fear, and she kept reaching in and bringing them out.  They don’t bite hard enough to hurt, and Analise was so excited to see them up close and personal.  Sadly, we didn’t get a picture of that.  Maybe next year!

Then they got boiled with potatoes, corn, sausage and cajun seasoning. 

I tasted one crawfish, and it was too fishy for my taste.  Brian didn’t end up tasting them.  But I pulled the meat out for Analise, and she loved them.  She loves shrimp, so I think these were just as tasty.  In the end, she probably ate 15 crawfish or so!  My girl must be part crawfish!  The last picture is of the crawfish remains, all eaten by Analise.  Crazy cajun girl!
