Happy St. Patrick’s Day from St. Louis Dad

lucky you

This past weekend we went to the Cottleville St. Patrick’s Day parade. It was raining a little but nothing to keep us away from the fun. There were thousands of people there and it was so cool seeing everyone having a good time just enjoying the raining weather watching the parade.

I got some GoPro footage (thanks Michelle!) but I just have not had the time to cut anything together. This year we had a much better position for the kids to catch beads and other little trinkets, but if your curious here is a video from last year that I put together.

After the parade we marched back to Mamaw and Pawpaw’s house and ate a delicious lunch in celebration of my wife’s 30th birthday. My father-in-law is a great cook and his menu never disappoints. A few fajitas and a slice of birthday cake later it was about time to head home. Once home we set ourselves up to relax for a bit while the kids napped. I may have slipped in a few minutes of rest but nothing spectacular.

My name is Richie and I am a 39 year old father of two, a daughter and son. 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 security 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.
