Picking Crabs

Whew, Monday already!  As I mentioned last week, I had to be in Maryland for a work meeting so I got to stay with my parents.  Of course we had to go pick crabs as the crabhouse had just opened the week before for the season!

This is all the goodness they bring out prior to the crabs.  Lots of fried stuff!  Typically they also serve corn but obviously that isn't in season yet.  Fried clams, shrimp, hushpuppies, chicken.  Totally healthy.

Crabs actually looked pretty good for this time of year!  This is my Dad and a big ole one!

Picking crabs is one of my favorite things to do when I go home!  People not from there don't understand it!  It's part of the culture!!!

This is the aftermath. We did some damage and I'm not going to ever eat again haha!!!
Good ole fashion Eastern Shore of Maryland visit.  Nothing better!

I flew back to Charlotte on Saturday morning and got some spring cleaning done around my place.  Kevin and I went out to dinner with his parents and brother that night at Cantina 1511 in Ballantyne.  Yesterday, we did some errands and I cleaned some more.  It was nice to get my closet switched from winter to spring/summer clothes.  It is so much brighter now with all the fun prints for summer!

Hope yall had a nice weekend!

Those crabs look delicious! Glad you had a nice visit with your folks. And you are one step ahead of me. I'm still wearing my winter stuff with this snow and cold weather. I do want to start changing out my closet. I'm getting tired of that winter stuff and can't wait to wear my Lilly. Have a wonderful week. Love & blessings from NC!
