Bribie Island Parkrun

Bribie Island Parkrun

Parkrun today was at the relatively new Bribie Island parkrun, the S.S. Koopa Trail Parkrun. Coincidentally, it is Belinda’s 333rd and my 111th parkrun. It wasn’t an early start for a change, as we were camping at Bongaree for the long weekend with the Macqueens and Nicolles. The run itself was nice. We ran 2 laps of up and back along the boardwalk. It was a little windy, but the overall temperature was perfect for running. I set a new…

Even though a few of Belinda’s friends unfortunately couldn’t attend, it was a fun night out. The kids enjoyed playing and running around. We pretty much had the whole place to…

Halloween 2019

Halloween 2019

We decided to meet up with Kate & Grant and take the kids ‘trick or treating’. Halloween isn’t something we have traditionally put a lot of effort into and we didn’t really know what to expect. Belinda and Kate knew a few of the people’s houses we would be visiting, so that slightly eased the pressure of walking up to a total stranger’s house and politely threatening them into giving our children lollies or we would trick them (not that…
