Wet ‘N’ Wild

As soon as we get to the super fun water park Wet’n’Wild on a super hot summers day, we get into the 30 meter long wave pool we stay in it for about ten minutes,  we got out and went to the slow but fun mammoth falls because the wave pool was to crowded.

  Next we go to the aqua races on that you get a board go up a lot of stairs and you choose one of the five lanes you wait for the green light and you let go you go so fast on it, but not as fast as this other slide we went on the speed way you go so fast then you hit the water at the bottom hard and you make a huge splash.

 Then we make our whey over to the kamakazy  its like huge wet skate board ramp and you go down and up and down and up and down until you stop at the bottom instead of a skate board you go down in a blow up ring that holds two people.

Then we crossed a bridge and under it was a really cool bearded lizard sun bathing on a rock.  Soon we are at the black hole it is so long and dark but so worth going up all the stairs.

Then we go onto the tornado you go on a blow up tube that holds four people so my mum dad my brother and I went on it my sister waited for us at the bottom on her towel,  its like a huge funnel that you go down I think it was the second best slide just after the kamakazy.

Finally we do it all again and we relax in the sun.

The one and only thing I did not like was all the stairs, I probably ran 400 stairs that day I wonder how many I exactly went up probably a big number.

The Best Birthday Ever!

The first one there was Jordan, one minute late. While we are waiting, we play on my twin brothers and my IPod touch.  Soon every one is here so we open the presents Andrew forgot his present so he gave it to us at school on Monday.  We all go onto the tramp.


Next, we all walk down to the river with our giant slingshot and shoot rocks into the river being careful not to hit ducks  we also  skim stones too.  When we were walking back home we flung horse poo at our friends that were walking slowly behind but we missed unfortunately they then returned fire with a lemon and we kept throwing it back and forth until there was no longer a lemon to throw.


Then when we are back, we take all the mattresses to the tent and all our other stuff we need too sleep with.  Soon the pizza guy is here and we ordered one too many pizzas but we had it for breakfast the next day.  Then we watch the rugby France Tonga it was a great game the ninth best team beating the forth .  Soon it’s 9.00pm so Josephs dad comes to pick him up but they watched the rest of the rugby with us.


After the rugby is over we light the bomb fire and we roast marsh mallows over it and Dino tells funny but scary stories.  When we go to bed, we play Chinese whispers for one hour soon after that we are all asleep.


In the morning, we have a huge breakfast scrambled eggs, bacon, left over pizza, sausages and more.  Next we take up the stuff from in the tent we thank everyone for the presents and then my mum takes them all home.

High In The Mountain

One day my mate Jimmy my dad Jim and I went on a hunting trip on a really tall mountain some where in theU.S.A.  I blow my deer call one calls back one calls back not to far away so we start going to where we herd it.  There it was a huge white tail stag a stag is a male deer it had huge antlers sixteen points. I take my shot, bang the killing shot echoes for ages I got it straight into its neck dead it falls straight away.  We go over to the deer and my dad picked it up and we start going to where we think our camp is but unfortunately we got lost looking for it and we left our cell phones at our camp.  Soon we come to a small creak and I slipped over when we were crossing it and I fell onto a sharp stick and got a deep cut in my leg so we were moving a lot slower then when we think it can’t get any worst, a huge bear came me and Jimmy didn’t see it but my dad did so he dropped the deer and shot it the shot gave Jimmy and I such a fright, I one of its inch and a half long teeth as a souvenir.  Soon we all felt hungry so we got some chips out of my bag some chips.  We see the tent where our camp is but it was on the top of a really tall cliff.  We remember that if your lost you fire off three shots into the air because it’s the signal for help but there was no reply.  Next we go around the huge cliff threw some razor sharp thorn bushes we get up to our camp with some scratches but they are not to bad.  As soon as we get there my dad dropped the deer and got his cell phone and called 911 a rescue helicopter comes and picks up all our camp gear and takes us the mountain and takes me to the hospital where I wake up with seven stitches in my leg and my family in the room I was in.  as soon as we get out of the hospital we some of the steaks off the deer we worked so hard to get.


My opinion is on our weather pattern over the past few days and the fun we have had while it has snowed.

  We have experienced snow in some parts of our country that havent seen snow for more than 50 years, eg. Wellington and Auckland Cities.

In Christchurch it has disrupted traffic by the roads having to be closed and some schools had to close also.  I only wish that it was the same for my school then we could have stayed home and made snowmen and had lots of snow fights.  It seemed really weird to see snow on a beach and someone was skiing on the beach while taking their dog for a walk.  While this may sound fun there can be some sad times because it is lambing season and lots of lambs may die due to the cold.  Older people need to be looked after too incase they get hypothermia.

H day

Copy of H Day 018Hi my name is Jimmy I lived in New York in a box.  Because there was more people so there was more money dropped and there was more nice people that gave me more money and food.  I got bankrupt because I stole stuff and I got sued for everything I had I stole a collection of rare objects worth over $200,000,00.  My favourite food is left over Mc Donald’s and left over KFC yum!!!  I was friends with Yanky the hobo that begs at Mc Donald’s sometimes I would beg with him the most I made in one day was $1.30 and I brought a half eaten Big Mac from a little boy but now I am at weka park Raumati  New Zealand with Hanky ,Yanky, Hinamin Hudges and Hudson hordeni .

My Favourite Food!

My favourite food would definatly be spare ribs covered in BBQ sauce.  There is only one bad thing about them and that bad thing is that you get really messy eating them.  We went to a resterant for dinner the other day for my friends bithday and almost everyone had them.  I love almost every kind of meat steak ,chops ,lamb rack ,sausages and much much more .

One reason I like is you don’t need to use a knife and fork I don’t know why but I don’t like to use them.  Another reason is I love the thick BBQ sauce.  A third reason is they are just delishous.

My Holiday

We got up at 6.00am, we took our bags into the car then we drive into Wellington.  It went so fast because I was so excited.  I don’t know why but we got to go in front of everyone and go straight onto the boat. 

You know how I said that the drive into Wellington went really fast the boat ride seemed like it would take forever, I got so bored because my Ipod went flat.  So I walked outside.  When we were going through all the small Islands I saw a pod of dolphins speeding through the waves.  

We finally got to Picton but we got lost looking for our friends, house.  It’s on a really long road and we went straight past it and went for ages past their road.  Finally we turned around and we found it as soon as we got there, we got into their pool.  When we are in the pool the kids arrive from school so they got in too.  We got bored with the pool so we got into the spar pool.  When the house owners son got back from work he showed us his paintball guns but sadly they needed more compressed air in them so that was off the list so he showed us his BB guns and we shot cans off a fence post.  Time went past so quickly.  So soon it was dark and he had some other awesome toys.  The next one we used was his night vision goggles they were so cool.  There was a 110 year old orange tree about 100 meters away and you could see every orange on it and it was pitch, black.  After that it was about 10:30 on Friday night so he decided to take us drifting through their vineyard in his car that he made into a convertible. He once had a girlfriend and she gave him her old car so he wanted to have some fun so he cut the roof off. We had about nine people in a five seated car.  When we got back he took our parents out.

  The 2nd day it was the food and wine festival so we got baby sat by a guy named Ameleo.  It was so fun, we played mini cricket inside, it’s when you play cricket with a small bat, ball and small wickets and you play it on your knees its just like cricket but a little bit smaller.  After that we went swimming and when we were in the pool our parents got back. 

 The 3rd day we found out that the guy with the convertible had two shot guns and a thing that shoots hardened clay disks, its called clay bird shooting it is so fun.  After that my brother my friend and I made a really awesome hut out of wooden crates.

The 4th day all of my family went out on a water taxi to a, Island called Lockamara Island.  First we had some lunch then we went on the kayaks they were another thing that was so fun.  Next we went to the dock and we found a bucket full of fish food so we threw some in the water and then all we could see was small fish.  So I jumped off the dock and Harry threw in some fish food so when I was swimming I would be kicking the fish.  Next we found a really big rope swing that went off a about six meter cliff and you would go flying into the water.  Then we needed to dry of and get changed because our boat was coming to pick us up soon.  And we had a nice smooth ride into Picton. When we got back we had some delicious fish and chips.

On the 5th day we had to leave but there was still one more awesome thing we did. They have a mule a mule is just like a quad bike but with a roof on it and we put a seat on the back and we would get towed on it and we were on a plastic sled and we were videoing it on ipod touch.

We left about three hours after we were on the sled.  I will really miss them and I can’t wait until we go back another time.
