Container park trip

For some time rubbish gathered in our garage. Time for a trip to the container park. Since the weather was nice we’ve changed this job into a family trip. Our load included wood, plastics, cover of the washing machine, grease, sandbox, highchair, wheel set and the worn out system for the garden hose. The nice view was a free bonus.

Bike transporter

On the plus side: you meet like-minded people, see the seasons change, enjoy a beautiful sunset,… Why is it that some people still start their engines to buy bread two blocks away? And why is it that these motorists have to be such aggressive towards pedestrians and cyclists? As far as I know they don’t harm the environment or anything else…

Cycling to the sport hall the boxes contained toys and of course enough foods and drinks to keep the young crowed going. On the way home the boxes were filled with our own toys and way to many presents…
