EMERGENCY DELAYS CRAWFISH

This was to be the weekend of fun and crawfish at the Cupit estate. It was fun and the family did have crawfish...eventually.

In typical Saturday morning fashion, Brad and Laurel and Brant were engaged in horseplay. It lasted quite a while. Brad was in the process of telling Laurel to get herself ready for the day when she came running into what she assumed were his outstretched arms waiting to whisk her up like a princess. In reality, his outreach was shooing her into her room to get out of her pajamas. At least, this is how those involved remember the scenario. What they know for sure is that Laurel jumped up and knocked her head into Brad's open mouth. The hit was hard enough to move his tooth out of position. Her head is fine. The slight abrasion is hidden at her hair line. Brad, on the other hand, spent a good portion of the day with an emergency dentist. He'll find out tomorrow the real prognosis, but for now, the tooth is back in position and wirebound to his other teeth.

Luckily, everyone was still able to eat at the family crawfish boil. It became more of an early dinner rather than a lunch, but it was still a lot of fun. Brant and Laurel loved playing with the live mudbugs, and they even ate a few!



You can tell who the braver sibling is. Laurel loved to pick them up and play with them. Brant would only touch the ones without pinchers. The rest he preferred to see from an arm's length.
