Crawfish Boil '09

This post is about a month late, but on Memorial Day we went over to our friend Cody's house for a crawfish boil. Cody is my cycling coach/trainer extraordinaire. He lives just a few blocks from us, so after getting back from the Mutt Strutt with Emma, we headed over to eat some crawfish.

Cody, our friends Justin and Charis, and Chad and myself are all from Louisiana, so it was nice to be able to enjoy a Louisiana tradition all the way up in Kentucky. We all pitched in a little bit and Cody had 40 pounds of crawfish shipped in from

These pictures have been posted on Facebook and on Chad's Flickr account, but I figured I would round up a few of them to post here!

I'm not sure that James Coney Island is even still open? Will check it out.

PS I am loving Chad's hat.

Oh yes - he loves that hat! He is also has one that says "Damn I'm good" and another that says "If I'm missing I'm fishing." He got them from a truck stop in New Orleans!
