One Wet Day


Last week on Tuesday it was pouring with rain. It was very sad because kids and other people picking up there children had to try and walk home. Some people were lucky because they got to get in a car. But some got soaking wet. I really felt sad for them and some had to wait for the rain to stop before they could make their journey home. It rained for a long time. Were you soaked when there was a down pour of rain? Well I was, sort of. We were screaming and there were LOTS of people who were waiting for the rain to stop. It was like flooding hard out, and I could hear my own shoes squelching as I walked.

Trip to Rangitoto Island



We got there and the view was breath taking. Have you travelled on a ferry? Well today I am travelling to Rangitoto. When we got on the boat I was full of excitement. We were sitting on the 3rd level which is on top of the ferry. When we got there we got to sit in seats while the tractor towed us around on a tour of Rangitoto. The driver stopped near some stairs and said “The summit is all the way up there”. “Three hundred and sixty five steps” he said. But I didn’t hear I was too busy walking up the stairs, it was a long way having to walk all the way. Then we had to go back to our seats. We had another stop near these piles of volcanic rocks. It was all kinds of shapes. Then I could feel something wet touch my face. Oh no! It’s raining, we all had to get back into our seats. But it eventually stopped and we got to go to the beach. I wrote my name in the sand. Finally we had lunch and got on the boat and went home.

Jungle World Mini Golf


Click on the picture above to find out more about this place.

Do you like playing golf? Well I don’t because I have to roll around everywhere. My job is to try and get in the hole by the golfer. He hits me and Im suppose to go in to the hole. When I get to the difficult holes, I really hate it because it takes long. Plus you have to roll around too much. When me and my golfer got to the 18th hole I hopped off the course and landed in the pond and drowned. From this day on, I am still waiting for someone to come and grab me out of there. Here's my movie.

Shout Easter Weekend


Do you go to church? I went to our church conference called Shout. It was held at the Aotea Centre during the long weekend. When I went to the kids programme, I wanted to play pool with the other boys. But the next day, I finally got to play because that was my first time. At the Shout conference we had this preacher called Reggie Dabbs. He travels the world and tells lots of people about God and his Son Jesus. It was funny because he used lots of jokes and he was good at playing the saxophone too. The songs he played on his saxophone were very cool. I liked Reggie Dabbs, he’s a cool guy. This is a short clip of him playing the saxophone.

Rainbows End Part 1

Two weeks ago, I went to Rainbows End it was great. Have you been there? The first ride that I went on was the Gold Rush. It was ok I guess. The only problem I have with it, is that it's not that long. The next ride I went on was the Log Flume. I liked it because it gets you all wet. I sort of got tired from walking one ride to the next. It was very tiring. Here is my first part of my trip, watch this space for the next one.
