Surf & Turf

June 23rd, 2008

Though we have been pretty casual about crabbing the last four summers of living here, this summer, Casey has decided that we are going to feast on the bounty of the Bay.   He has been diligently manning the traps, feeding the daily catches and transferring them to a holding tank, and driving far out of the way for the best bait.   And we are reaping the rewards!   In fact, we have been letting anything go that’s not a large or a jumbo  (for those of you reading who  don’t live in Maryland, that’s really big!!), and we finally had so many in the holding tank (a little over 3 dozen), we decided that we couldn’t keep up.   So last night we invited my sister and her family and some other good friends of our over and we ate steamed crabs until we could eat no more.

Here are the kids in front of the bucket of soon-to-be steamed blue crabs…

Kenny was in heaven with his cousins, and our friends’ three daughters presence almost pushed him over the edge of happiness.   They swam:

Even Casey got into the party-mode…


Now all we need is to have this baby!   My ultra-sound is tomorrow, so I am hoping to find out a little more then about the baby’s size, whether or not a c-section is in the cards, and when in the world this little bean might make an appearance!

Stay tuned…
