Cajun fun

We made a fast trip back to western Nebraska and picked up our 9 year old grandson, Reid.  He will stay a few weeks with us.  Already we have had several adventures and created new memories.  I told him that it would be fun to go to Louisiana but since we couldn't do that we would bring it to us.  He made fish from construction paper and hung them under the roof that covers the deck (didn't get them in the picture).  We covered the table with freezer paper.  Finger bowls with water, plastic bibs, melted butter in individual bowls and cajun music playing set the mood.  I made a big pot of shrimp boil; shrimp,  new potatoes, onion, chunks of smoked sausage, small chunks of corn on the cob....all cooked in cajun spice.  Then I just dumped it on the table and you dig silverware!!  lolol  We tapped our feet to Cajun Bayou by Buckwheat Zydeco, laughed and dripped butter all over our bibs!
