Shrimp. Boil.

A social event where shrimp is boiled
in a large pot with other foods
 (generally sausage, potatoes, corn, etc)
and then poured out over picnic tables.
Particularly popular in Louisiana.

Josh organized a nice
get together for his dad's birthday.
 Because Duane and Kristi
were married on Duane's birthday,
they rarely celebrate their dad's birthday as a family.

Josh served his mission in Louisiana and Jordan served in Texas--but Jordan spent the last few weeks of his mission in Louisiana.
Together, they were able to pull off a pretty impressive boil...

The huge pot used
 to boil all of the food

They seasoned the food with this:

The food was just the right amount of spicy.

Nothing Bundt Cake flavor: red velvet.

Originally the candles read: "35ish"

This cake was glorious.

Birthday Boy

Me, Josh, and Kristi

The shrimp boil was a success
We plan to have another one soon

Happy Birthday Duane


Happy Anniversary
Kristi and Duane
(August 16th)
Here's to 24 years of marriage
