Yep, very expensive this year, due to the abnormal cold. Running around $7.00/lb.

Doesn't slow us down....traditionally DH and I have mudbugs every Friday night for the entire season.

I met/married a Yankee while living in FL, dragged him back here and turned him into a country guy and I'll be danged if he can't eat 5X as many mudbugs as me!

LOL, even Johnny's Pizza (very popular pizzeria in NELA) has a mudbug pizza called "Sweep The Swamp".

Texas or Louisiana in June would not be something that I would want to do. I live in SE Texas about 40 miles NNE of Houston and it is to hot even in June. Many of us go north anytime from mid-May thru September. I don't know were you are from but if you are landlocked and want the beach, the best Texas has to offer is South Padre Island. There is a very nice KOA right on the water and some very good seafood close by. Next week South Parde Island will be full of spring breakers but after that it should be good, make reservations and have a great trip.

Thank you.
Take a look at Sandpiper RV Resort, literally right on the beach on Galveston Island, Texas. Fairly small resort, so might want to see about reservations if you are interested. Lots to see and do on the island, for all of your kids, including the beach.

Where are you coming from? From the OK/Tx border to South Padre is a 12 hr drive. South Padre is very nice, but if you do not want to burn a lot of time in travel, Galveston Island (State Park) is very nice too.

I was gonna mention Cajun palms also. Too rowdy for me with all the drinking, noise and crowds, but their pool area is huge and kids can stay in it all day. Check out their website.

Another two places in Galveston are Jamaica Beach RV, across from beach and bay on other side, putt putt golf and movie nites, and Dellanera Rv on the beach. Down the island from the Sandpiper which is small but nice, Jamaica Beach will be the largest. Lots for kids to do in Galveston.

Thank you for the info. We have talked about south padre...it's about 13 hours away. It may be the ending location for the kids.

Good idea. I will check that out. We talked about Galveston...DW is a little comprehensive about the beach being dirty...or as she was told.

If you go to Galveston, eat at Fisherman's Wharf and get an order of Wharf Mix, that has shrimp, crawfish and squid in a seasoned rice. It is great!
