Blue Crab Festival..in Palatka Florida

Well we started off our Memorial Day weekend off
by going to the
Blue Crab Festival in a near by town..


Look at all that Crab...
Yummo !!!!


Ok ,, they had camel rides..
I had to do it..
For a lot of years,,, I would just
look at people having a good time
but from a far..
Now over the past couple
of years , I have decided to
Live Life...
So I rode a Camel..lol


Isnt my camel cute ?
For a camel , anyway..

I thought this sign was so cute..
It was about 92* today..
So shade was very much welcomed
and Free is good...lol


I dont know this kids..but boy was they having fun..
Love the hats..


Here is my handsome youngest son..
He is head set on going into the Air Force
against his mothers wishes..
but he wanted to ride the
helicopter...
So he and I rode the helicopter..
Live Life...


And Off we Go....



He was very excited..
ok,, you cant tell it in the picture..lol
but he waited in line in the hot hot sun
for over an hour to ride it.. 

A view from up in the air...

Tyler tried his first bite of Alligator... 


It was a great day...
And it was best because we got to spend time together..
 
On our way home we stopped by my husbands office
and I got a picture of us..
He isnt much of a picture person..
Not like me.. I live and breath pictures..

Yea I know.. that is not a surprise..lol

I hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend as well

I've been running around like a chicken w/ her head cut off the past few weeks and was hankerin' for good glass of sweet tea, so I stopped by! =) Loved seeing the pics of your family visit ~ I know you must miss them so, even if they aren't TOO far away!
Also loving seeing your pics of he crab festival & reading of another blogger's adventures not too far away from where I am! Despite the heat & humidity, I ♥ love living the Florida lifestyle....for now! ;)

Blessings to you,
