Memorial Weekend

We started Memorial Day weekend out with a crawfish boil on Travis' brand new boiler. Minus the mosquitoes eating us alive, it was a great night.

Saturday began the Bayou Country Superfest. Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Kellie Pickler, Gloriana, Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Jake Owen, Brooks & Dunn, and Kenny Chesney.... whew. Two days and nearly 7 hours each, but it was AMAZING. And Keith Urban definitely got me a little weak in the knees when he was singing nearly an arms reach away. Saturday it rained for the first part but the fact that you could drink beer on the field in Death Valley made up for it, even if they were $7 a pop. No doubt we will be in attendance at the 2nd Annual Bayou Country Superfest.... Carrie Underwood and Tim McGraw anyone??

{Brooks & Dunn - you don't get much closer than that!}

After three wild days we spent Monday recovering and getting ready for our arrival: Chickens! Hopefully next week sometime, so we (Travis and Nick, to jump start their new 300 workout for May 13, 2011) prepped by building a coop. I counteracted their workout by making them crawfish scrambled eggs and bacon. Whoops.

We finished off the weekend with a bowl of salsa straight from our garden: tomatoes, jalapeno pepper and cilantro. Can't beat that. Now if only I could get the birds to stop pulling my sunflower sprouts out of the ground and nipping off my blueberries before I get to them.

Glad to hear & see that you had a great weekend! Our seats for Keith Urban at the Paso Fair won't be as close, so I don't think I'll be getting weak in the knees, darn!(Mom). Love your blog updates! We miss you!
