Come and do the bunny hop with me! By Cheska

Have you ever been to a place where everything around you is fun?

During the holidays, my friends, her family and I went to the Easter show on Monday April 6th at ASB show grounds. We went there to celebrate Easter.
Image result for easter show 2015 When we arrived there Jane’s dad went to purchase the tickets for us so we could go on the rides. The first ride that we picked was the haunted house ride. At the end of the ride, the water squirted on our faces as if we were having a water fight. After that we went and walked over to the path of doomness. At first I thought it would be scary like a ghost paralysing you but when I reached the end I was disappointed.
Then we went to a ride called the pirate ship. When we hopped on the ship Jane and I were laughing really hard. When the ride ended, Jane and were so dizzy that we fell on the ground like we were poisoned. However we soon got up quick like energy bunnies.

After that, we rushed quickly to the cotton candy and Fanta stand. We went down on our knees and begged Jane’s mum and asked her if she could buy some for us and she said,”Yes!” Her sisters and I finished most of it and we left some for my brother. Then it was time to go home because it was getting late.
It was fun at the Easter show because I haven't been there before and I hope I can go there next year.

I am getting stronger and stronger! By Aiden

I am getting stronger and stronger!

In the weekend I had boot camp with my family. We have boot camp with my uncle Joe and he is a personal trainer. We have to do a lot of exercises. It took place on the field outside ASB stadium.

First we had to go into four groups. There were three areas. One group ran 20 metres and back. Two groups ran 40 metres and back and the last group ran 60 metres metres and back. We had 30 seconds to run to the the blue cones and back as many times as we could. Then we swapped around. We were sweating like pigs. Everyone said, “OMG!” during the training. When we finally finished, we had to do the stations. The stations are activities that are set so our bodies will get stronger.

Each station had an exercise for us to do. We either had to lift something, do push ups or do tricep dips. Tricep dip is when you get a chair and put your hands on the end of the chair and you raise and lower you your body up and down using your arm muscles. We had to do all the stations twice before we could move on to the next exercise. We had to do shuttles at each of the stations. Shuttles are when you run to a line, return to starting line and continue to the lines back and forth until you reach the last line. Then we had to go up the hill and back down, it was hard like getting out of foam. We were crying out, “Why Joe why?” Then we went back to the stations and did a different routine.

This time we didn't have to lift anything. We had to go on our backs, touch our ankles and do more push ups. We were really tired and we were on the running out of battery. Everyone hung in there because we were all thinking about the barbecue that we were going to have after boot camp. The last thing that we needed to do was the stretching. Stretching felt really good but it hurt a lot. We were all sweating like we had been running for a week.

When we were finally finished, we went to our aunt's house for a barbecue. We had sausages, salads and garlic breads. We were in for a treat. When we finished eating, we played around and hopped in the spa. The spa was what we needed and it felt good because it relaxed the muscles that we had been using during boot camp. My cousin was throwing the ball like a bird because it was all over the place. We also played spotlight in the dark and that was pretty fun. When dinner was ready, we ate it slowly so we could savour the tastes. It tasted like the nectar collected from bees during Spring. We had a late night that night and we went to bed at 1.00 am. I had a very good sleep that night.

Look at that crater! By Glen




On Good Friday we went to Mt. Wellington with my brother and dad. We drove there in a car.

First we climbed up the summit the mountain to the summit. It was very hot like I've been put in an oven. Along the way we saw a swarm of flies.

It was great watching the view and going to the top of the mountain, Next time, I might spend longer there so could we have an even better look around the crater.
