Brushing his tooth-top

I can't get a picture of his tooth yet (its about 1/4 the way out), but I got him his own toothbrush (because he likes to chew on our electric one). So I got him his own electric toothbrush.

USS Alabama

Today while in Mobile, AL we went to see the USS Alabama.
We got to go inside and walk all around. This was a GREAT time to have a carrier for london since some areas were tight squeezes.

We even found the Brig....
More to come later this week....

We have a climber

I made the mistake of thinking I could go to the bathroom and just leave him on the floor by the door. When I came out I found that he had climbed the stairs!!! He never even tried this once before!

Crawfish Boil take two---New Orelans style

So after lastnights spicy, more difficult style we thought we would have the locals show us there way. MUCH bigger pots was the main difference, and outside so we could breathe.

Crawfish Boil---Yankee style

I should start of by explain what Yankee style means. Well all of us from "up North" have never tried to do a crawfish boil before. This is normally done outside in a 10 gallon container......we now know thats for good reason! We did it inside with two 1.5 gallon containers! Why do they do it outside---because the spices are so strong they make you cough and eyes burn (yes even us who have been in India already were surprised by that!
So you get the crawfish live so they taste better-----well some can apparently get out of the bag even before you get them home...And someone at Troy's work said you needed 10lbs per PERSON (since you only eat the tails that sound fine to us). But the place we went to go get them at sold only 27 or 45 lb bags. So we got the 27lb one.... (we ended up eating MAYBE 1/3 this bag!)Even after we get them up to the room we had some fighters in the group! (never leave your crawling infant on the floor with the fighting crawfish!)This is what the boil looks like in little pots.
So you pull the tail off the crawfish, suck the head juice out, then peel the tail for the meat. So here is Ben and I sucking the heads...

March Madness

Its that time of the year again. Time to fill out those March Madness NCAA basketball brackets to claim your winner. Oh and its time for the boys to think they can play basketball also! LOL

Also I got my first "flat" tire while driving tonight. More like a blow out if you ask me! It happened during rush hour ON the interstate right outside the city! So it was me and london and the idiot drivers in a rush----I was NOT a happy camper. Once I got the car back to the National Rental car location they did let me pick any car on the lot---- and I got a PRIUS!!!!!! I'm so excited to give it a test drive this month! I will get pictures of it later :)
