Next I   got the soccer ball. Then my brothers and sisters and I played soccer with my cousin. While we played soccer my parents talked with my uncle and aunty.  Later it was time to eat so I went and told all of the adults to come and eat.  Then they all came inside to eat and my aunty said that we needed to wash our hands first.  Before we ate we said our prayer and then we ate our food.

After lunch we went to the the large room and watched cartoons on TV. My cousins and I felt very tired so we went inside my room and had a sleep. My holiday was a lot of fun.

My auntie, and all of her family, came to pick up my family and I to take us to Rainbows End.  But when she arrived my family and I were still dressing.  My auntie waited for us to finish dressing. 

First, after we had gotten into my auntie’s car, we put on our seat belts.  Then my auntie drove us to Rainbows End.

When we got to Rainbows End I went to get the tickets.
The first thing I went on was the Racing Cars.  When I pressed the red key, and then the car went.  My sister and I raced each other and I beat her.  Everyone watching us knew that I was being a good driver. 

Next we went to the lady who had given us our tickets.  We said goodbye to her and we wished her a good holiday.  Then she said to me that I was good at driving.  I said, “Thank you”.  Then she gave me a necklace.  It sparkled like diamonds. 

After that we were both tired so we went to have a little rest.  Then it was time to go home.  We all had a happy family day having fun at Rainbows End.

During the holidays my mum and I went to Sylvia Park.  First we went to the movies and bought our tickets so that we could watch a movie later on.

After that we went to the mini golf place.  It is outside.  It has a fence, but it does not have any windows to the outside or a roof.  We got our golf sticks and our balls from the lady.

Then we played mini golf together.    We had to shoot the ball over the water and I got it in the window.   Then it was mum’s turn.  Mum hit her ball and it landed in the water.  Then I got it in the hole.  It was fun for my mum and I.

After we had finished playing mini golf we went to the bouncy thing.  I jumped really high on the bouncy thing.  Mum tried to get me to do a back flip.  I tried but I couldn’t do it that time.  It was cool as.

Next we went to the movies.  We watched Pan.  Pan is cool.  Blackbeard is cool.  Pan could fly.  Blackbeard said, “Look at Pan”.  Pan flew and landed safely.  When he woke up he was in Blackbeard’s ship.  Peter Pan was the special one.  Blackbeard said, “Do you want some chocolate”.  Pan said, “Yes”.  It was an exciting movie.  Mum and I liked it.

After that I asked my mum, “Where are we going?”  My mum said “It’s a surprise!”  When we got to our destination my sister and I were surprised.  Then we shouted, “Bounce and Beyond!”  Then we all went inside while my mum paid.

At Bounce and Beyond you have to wear socks at all times.  Bounce means that everything inside is bouncy, and it is fun.  There is a climbing wall and a wreaking ball.  They are two of my favourites.  There is also a little Island.  The Island is next to the café.  There is a queen chair.  It is bouncy and there is a crown on top. 

Finally it was time to go home.  I had so much fun at Bounce and Beyond.  I hope to go there another time.

At my nana’s house I fed the goldfish.  The goldfish live in a glass fish tank with their mum and dad. They have a house which is brown and red.  They all love it!  They have lots of green plants to make their home into an undersea world. 

In the evening I felt a little earthquake.  It scared me.  After that the earthquake stopped shaking our house.  Christopher said, “Who’s making our house shake?”  “It was an earthquake”, said mum.  It was an exciting visit to nana’s house.

In the holidays my mum, my little sister and I went to Kelly Tarlton’s.  Kelly Tarlton’s is a sea aquarium and it is built under the ground and near the sea.

At Kelly Tarlton’s we saw some old things from a long time ago.  I think they were from the 1930’s.  We saw old beds and old gear.  There was also a music box.  It was already playing when we got there.  We all liked listening to it. 

Next we saw the penguins.  They were swimming and playing together.  One of the penguins was clapping backwards with its flippers.  After that we saw some fish. 

In the first room we saw dolphins and some big fish.  We also saw some stingrays.  Two of the stingrays were in the shape of a stone and the other one was swimming around.  It looked like it was flying. Their tails had been cut off so that they didn’t bang them on the glass.

Then we had a play and a drink. In the other room there were some sharks.  There were some big sharks.  They didn’t eat the fish.  It was cool to see a shark.   There was also a scorpion fish.  It was red and white.  I learnt lots of interesting things at Kelly Tarltons.

Big Hero Six Movie

On the weekend I watched a movie.  It was called Big Hero Six.  This is a story of good versus evil.  In this movie there are good robots and bad robots.  After much fighting between the opposing sides, as usual, the good robots won. 

One of the main characters in the story is a boy who has a good brain and can make things.  He can make robots.  Another main character in the movie is Big Hero six.  He is a robot.  There was also a bad guy.  The bad guy could control microbots.  The microbots will do anything that you tell them. 

The movie was funny.  For example when Big Hero Six was trying to get through a window he was too big so he had to let out some air.  Big hero was trying to let out air quietly but he made lots of noise!!

During the movie I ate an ice cream and some cookies.  Then I brushed my teeth.  I said goodnight to my mum and dad and I went to bed.

The movie was about a boy who went to school, and some pirates.  The pirates took the children to Neverland.  Then the pirates pushed the boy onto the plank and the boy fell off the ship.  Instead of falling into the sea the boy flew.  Everyone called him Peter Pan because he had the Pan necklace.  At the end of the movie Peter Pan got the children out of bed and took them to his friend on the pirate ship.  It was a good movie. 

Rainbows End

On Saturday I went to Rainbows End with my family.  We went in Phil’s car. 

First we went on the dodgems.  I banged my cousin’s dad.  I banged into Rob.  We all banged into each other.  Nana screamed because poppa wouldn’t stop banging into us and Caleb bumped us.  We went back and forwards.  When you bump into each other you go forwards and backwards.  We all had fun. 

Next we got on the family kart but you are not allowed to bump into each other. The family karts have no bumpers so it’s not safe to bump into each other.   

After that my nana, aunty, Rob and Phil went on the fear fall.  Phil was really scared.  As the fear fall slowly went up everyone was quiet but when the fear fall raced down everyone screamed, only Rob was brave.

Then we got candy floss.  My mum and my cousin’s dad couldn’t stop eating mine and Caleb’s candy floss.

Later we went home. My feet were sore and I had a shower.  Then we had dinner.  After that I read a book and Theo and I went to bed.
