Took my parents to Tamborine Mountain today. It’s about an hour drive from our house. We did the rainforest skywalk. I was not very keen about walking on the bridge with a see-through floor, that was 50 feet off the ground. I won’t even climb the tower out at Mahoney State Park, because of the see-through floor! I managed to do it, but it took me awhile. Every time the kids got close to the edge my knees would go weak and I felt like I was going to pass out. Bella kept asking……”What’s wrong with mom?”

We took our car over on a ferry to Stradbroke Island
Our view from our villa
The P’s arrived Friday the 20th at 6:30 am. They actually did pretty well with the time change. I took them out to see where Bryce works and then to a cafe for some brekky. They managed to stay up til 5:00pm!!! Saturday was much easier on them. My mom and I went shopping and Bryce and my dad took the kids to the park. Today we got up and caught the ferry to Stradbroke Island. We will be here until Christmas Eve!!! Much needed holiday for this mama!
Made it to my fifth Kid Rock concert. Best part it was here in Australia! A big thanks to Bryce for pulling it off.
Today is Bella’s last day of school! Her teacher said she is doing great for coming in half way through the year. Here are a couple pics of her graduation from prep (kindergarten). She will start first grade January 28th!!
My parents will be here next Friday!!! So excited! Bryce and I planned a little outing to Stradbroke Island when they get here. It’s a 45 min drive from our house to the pier, then another 45 min boat ride to the island. Pure paradise awaits! I still can’t believe I live here! Some people in Brisbane will do Stradbroke Island “Straddie” just as a day trip because it’s so close…..but I booked us for 2 nights. This mama is ready for a vaca. The part I’m not keen on is I just got done watching shark week. The largest great white (24 ft) was spotted off Stradbroke Island. REALLY…..really…….Of course. I will conquer my fear and still snorkel. I may not enjoy it because I will be looking around me instead of the marine wildlife, but whatev’s, mark that shit off the bucket list! I posted a couple pics below that I pulled off the internet of Straddie.
