800..n'Some Odd...Crawdads???

From The M&M Kemp Family
Yes, eight hundred and some odd crawdads were caught that day! And we ate nearly all! For a fun family get away with the Kemps we ran out to Strawberry Lake...and had a blast catching crawdads! They are some of the creepiest looking things...but they sure are suckers for a drumstick on a string! Here are some random pictures of the day!

We all seemed to get a kick when the crawdads would clamp their claws down on the brims of our hats...Mike wasn't quite so amused... :)

Emery...she's going to hate me for posting this...I just couldn't resist!


Dale, Mikes dad...he just makes me laugh...most will find him in either a shirt and tie...some kind of collared shirt and slacks...or this outfit below...his superman shorts...his favorite pair!!! Brody also loves them! That morning I heard him holler to Elaine..."Elaine, have you seen my superman shorts...I can't find them?" It made me giggle...and I told him that sounded like something I'd hear Brody yell..."Mom, have you seen my spiderman shirt?" We both got a good laugh! ...but you can bet...if we're going playing...Dale will be in his superman shorts!!! Love it!

Mmmm...doesn't he just look yummy!!!

Yes, Mike is shirtless...that is his farmers tan...not a t-shirt!

I giggled a little out loud when you talked about Mike's farmers tan not being a shirt. You funny girl, I miss talkin' with you. It is fun to read your posts. I can hear your voice and the expressions you would make as I read it!

That looks like so much fun! We also would catch crawdads in the river by our house when we were little. Give 'em a little hot dog, put 'em in a milk jug with some water and see how many we could catch. Never ate any, we would send them on their merry way after we caught them! Good pics!

Jess said...

That is a whole lot of crawdads! Isn't it amazing how you can just keep catching them. Looks like a fun day!
