One of the activities at Family Camp is "creek stomping." This amounts to wading through the cool waters of the creek that winds its way through camp property. All sorts of fun creatures can be found in the creek, but crawdads seem to be the most fun to catch. These critters were put back in the creek and didn't end up on our dinner plates, but incidentally my Parents' Night Out date-night entree at Buzzard Billy's in LaCrosse was--
Crawfish tails sautéed in garlic and spices in a creamy Cajun brown sauce and ladled over a juicy blackened chicken breast. Served with rice and vegetables."
It was delicious. (Yes, crawfish and crawdads are the same thing--freshwater crustaceans. Sharon, if you are ever with us for Parent's Night Out, we'll avoid Buzzard Billy's!)
This year for the first time Village Creek had pottery wheels. Hope and Sydney got to try out throwing some clay on the wheel. An experienced instructor guided them through the process and they each succeeded in creating a small little dish.
