LSU Alumni Crawfish Boil 2014

This past Saturday was the annual LSU Alumni Carolinas Crawfish Boil.
It's held every May and it's an event that Brad, even being a Hokie, looks forward to as much as I do.
Nothing better than hot boiled crawfish, sausage, corn, potatoes and an Abita beer to get your party started.
This was Shelby's 2nd crawfish boil, but her first time to actually eat one.
She loved them!
She actually loved it all!
 My brother and niece sent her the cute little Tiger dress for Christmas.
It was perfect for a sunny day in the high 80's where we spent the entire time outside.
 Our alumni group has had a group out of Georgia cater it for the last several years but this year we went with Emeril LaGasse's local restaurant E2.
 All you could eat.
We could have literally taken crawfish home if we wanted.
Local, non-LSU friends, joined us again this year.
Josh and Katie.
 Neighbors Shannan and Bryan.
 A little Cajun music was in store too.
Shelby enjoyed that too.
Check it out.

 They had some great raffle prizes on hand again this year.
I would have loved to have won this wine glass but instead walked away with nothing.
 Even so, I walked away having had a GREAT time, despite a little rain shower that moved us inside for a brief moment.
 And Brad walked away having participated in an egg toss for the first time in years and years..
 And, he lost.
Everyone claims it's because he refused to put his beer down but he says Josh was the one to drop the egg.

Another crawfish boil in the books!
It was a blast!
