Crawfish Festival

Our next stop on the trek back to North Carolina from Texas was at a Crawfish Festival! We have never taken the kids to any type of fair so it was a "first" for all of us :)  We generally don't like carnie rides or spending ridiculous amounts of money to eat crappy unhealthy food. But after the week we had had, it seemed like a good idea, so we did!  lots of tickets were spent for a couple hours of a good time...

Chris and i are both terrified of Ferris Wheels but it was the only thing that everyone could do together so we got on it. and it really wasn't fun because we spent most of the time threatening the kids lives if they made the carriage move or shake. I'm pretty sure we passed our fear right on to the 5 little people that were with us!

everybody needs to drive cars and motorcycles at the fair…right?

well except cadence, who passed right on from driving to bull riding!!

and you can't go to a crawfish festival without eating crawfish! 
So. We. Did. 

and this picture was taken from the top of the Gulf of Mexico. So, i can officially say I've seen it from all sides and the Sarasota/Bradenton side is the most beautiful…at least in my opinion :)

Oh my word. I could NOT have eaten those crawfish. Ugh. Makes me shudder to look at them. I almost can't believe you fed them to your children. ;-)

And Cadence's faces on that bull ride. Those belong in frames. I can hear her laughing when I look at them. They make my heart so happy. I love that girl.

I just looked at Shae in those pictures again. That second one... that hair... that face. It's like looking at "baby Cadence" in a big girl's body. She melts my heart.

Liz, you're so right. She does look like a much younger Cadence in those pics. We all tried the crawfish but they weren't delicious.
