Memorial Day

ok. so i'm slightly behind posting about our Memorial Day. oh well. better late than never. that seems to be a motto way too popular with me lately!

we had a super fun Memorial Day. we had lunch with Ben's parents. his brother, Tripp & his fiancee, Cris & her 2 boys cooked out with us too. it was really yummy & a lot of fun. after lunch, we headed home to pick up a few things & then we headed straight to my parents house. my dad boiled crawfish with corn & potatoes. and my brother-in-law, Ryan, grilled up some deer meat. i am NOT a fan or crawfish or deer meat. so i brought along my trusty ole Alabama BBQ chicken & Ryan grilled it up for me. it was delish. we spent the evening relaxing & enjoying our family.

somehow, i only got pictures at my parent's house. i didn't take a single one at Ben's parents. probably b/c our camera is completely broken & so i've only been able to take pictures with my iphone for the past 2 months. not fun. but money is ridiculously tight right now. so the iphone is the best i can do for now. i'm trying to take as many pics as i can with it, but 1/2 of them don't turn out super great. whatever. hopefully, we'll be able to get a new camera before the end of the summer.

we had a really fun & really relaxing Memorial Day. holidays with family are the best. we look forward to them!

here a few pics from our day:

the crawfish. if you ask me, this could not look more disgusting!

the sausage, corn & potatoes that my dad boiled with the crawfish. corn & potatoes=yumm. sausage=not yumm. not a fan of sausage, in any form.

the men. doing some grilling. of some deer meat. of which i am also, not a fan!! i promise i'm not picky!! (ok, so the deer meat wasn't so bad!)

Katie ate up some crawfish. i am ashamed to say that both my sisters have gone to the dark side.

Lindsay sucking that crawfish right out of the shell. gross.
