"Redneck Island"

Well, we went to our little piece of paradise...that I jokingly call "Redneck Island."

This is very typical of all of our truck rides.....him on the phone....me...playing....:)

we arrive....

there is a lot of barge traffic

And other boats...


This one was a long way from home....

I grabbed a baby....I can't resist....plus it was a good excuse not to take my shirt off and get in the water.

these cuties were digging tunnels....

My boys showed up.....feel very blessed that they still want to hang out with us...:)

these kids made the day even more fun...

of course we took the dogs...

It was a great day....

How fun! And know what? Life is too short and we are too old to worry about what we look like in a bathing suit. Throw caution to the wind and let it blow your skirt up.

I can just tell you are a sweetie pie and lots of FUN! I adore the pic of all the kids lined up on the bank of the shore. Kids make us young, don't they?

What fun! We live about 3 miles from the Meramec River just outside of St Louis and have have a jon boat with a pump (because the river is about 2 inches deep in parts). We and the neighbors load up kids, chairs, awnings, etc. and take off for a sandy beach. Lots of fun. Looks like you all had a great time too.
