Having Fun on Island 521

eric-textI got a text from my brother asking if I wanted to bring the family out with him and his crew on the Mississippi river. I checked with my wife to make sure our schedule was clear. It was, so I shot a text back letting him know we will be there. Friday morning we packed up the cooler with some lunch and drinks and headed out. We loaded up and after a boat ride we pulled up onto Island 521. There were not many people out as early as we were, but as the day went on the Island filled up with a good amount of boats. Of course I brought the GoPro and let my niece take control.

We didn’t get to stay out as late as we would have like too. However, we had baby Alex with us and he was gettingĀ done with the day. So my brother took us back in. It was a beautiful day that my wife and I enjoyed. Next time we will try to get a sitter for Alex. If we can’t, no worries, we still had a blast.

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.
