2016 a Year in St. Louis Dad Photos

NewYear-2017-STLdad

Looking back at 2016 I would have to say that our family rocked it. We made a lot of fun memories and had a great time in the process. We had a lot of fun going to different events, spending time together with only our little family and also all of the times we spent with our much larger extended family. There were a lot of laughs and many tears, but all in all the Williams family rocked St. Louis this year and we plan on continuing rocking it for 2017.

So as I was going through my photos from the past year and I thought it would be nice to share these 15 favorite Instagram pictures from 2016. Enjoy!

This past year we had many opportunities to check out several Disney shows in downtown St. Louis. It was so awesome seeing our kids faces light up when the shows began!

2016 was also the first year that I have presented at a couple major conferences. It was so cool being able to share my knowledge with others within the education and technology fields.

The Cottleville St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a yearly favorite event to check out. This year it was rainy, much like the year before but we still had a lot of fun.

 And right after St. Patty’s Day there’s Easter! Going to Eckert’s this year for their egg-hunt was a rainy day blast. The kids had so much fun that day.

Can’t wait to do some egg hunting with these two kiddos. #egghunt #easter

One of the very few dates my wife and I actually had in 2016. The day together was made even better by spending it with my beautiful wife.

A float trip without kids? That was definitely a highlight of the year. Except the storm that followed, that was a little intense.

Had a blast floating this weekend with some awesome people! #floating #blackriver #gopro

Tigger is still a popular sidekick. Even though she thought about putting him away, he was back the next day in her arms!

Dad’s a Halloween hot dog! The kids said that I made them too hungry and can’t wear this costume anymore.

Trick or treat! Smell our feet! #halloween #extrastinky #hotdog #supergirl #candy #parenttax

We will take any picture we can get, even if it’s ruined by a tongue. 

Happy Thanksgiving from the Williams family!

This past year has been amazing. My kids are growing up with two parents that love them beyond words can describe and I myself have never been so lucky to have three incredible people in my life. Our new family tradition is posted below, going to Waffle House Christmas morning. There was a bit of a wait but it didn’t take too much time before we were shoveling hash browns and waffles down our gullets.

Thank you for sticking around this past year reading St. Louis Dad. Here’s to 2017 and all the memories it will bring with it!

Richie

My name is Richie and I am a 34 year old father of two. My daughter is seven years old and my son is four. I am married to a beautiful woman named Destiny. She is the foundation of our family, and without her, none of this would be possible. During the day I work as a network administrator for a local school district. At night I can be found illustrating books, working on websites, or creating music, but more than likely though I am spending time with my kids.
