For Greg and Sara it was the crabs we bought in Kemah that afternoon. Melissa and I had a burrito from Freebirds World Burrito.

  1. Love Sara’s expressions! (Clearly, crab eating is a very serious business πŸ˜€ )

    • It must be! πŸ™‚ I was impressed that she could take those crabs apart almost all by herself, with little help from daddy.

    That’s so awesome that your kid(s?) will eat crab. Mine are ultra picky. Will they eat lobster next summer?

    The first photo looks like the crabs are on the moon with the galaxy in the background. lol

    • Only Sara will eat crabs, Melissa says they’re creepy because they “stare at her” πŸ™‚
      They’ve both had lobster (I think?? I know Melissa has for sure), so they probably will eat it.
      The first photo is the pot being filled.

  4. Great pics! That’s awesome how she’ll pick it apart herself. I like crab but I’ve never eaten them like that. Is there much meat in one crab?

    • Thanks, Karen. I wouldn’t know about the amount of meat, I don’t eat crab either. Only seafood I eat is fish.

  5. I had no idea crabs were so colorful… where have i been, under a rock?? Rules for eating crab.. #1 stick one’s tongue out just a little bit. It really helps, just like it does when you’re doing anything “challenging”! πŸ™‚

    • That’s right, the sticking the tongue out a little always helps πŸ™‚
      Those ARE “blue crabs”, I don’t think all crabs are this colorful?

    the problem w/ eating crabs is all the work for such little meat. and those crabs don’t look that big. good for Sara for having the patience. Love the last pic w/ her tongue sticking out…..that always makes the work easier πŸ˜‰

    • Doreen, apparently it’s not the size that matters (is it ever? LOL), it’s how heavy they are. But I agree with you.. seems like and awful lot of work.

  7. Love that first shot, looks like crabs on another planet, with a starry background.

  8. Great series of photos! The look you captured on Sara’s face in the last photo is fantastic. It’s a real “in the moment” look, where she looks so intent on what she’s doing.
