On Saturday, my brother decided that we should go to Panmure Basin to have some fun and take some awesome selfies. So we packed up our things to take with us, including our scooter and wave board. I wanted to bring my bike buy it was too big to fit in our car, so we left it behind and soon we were on our way to the basin.

When we got there, all of us rushed out of the car and started walking around the basin. We made a few stops taking selfies and played on the playground. The playground was full with excitement. We played cheese touch, it is a similar game of tag. After playing for a while we took some really awesome selfies. I loved the part when my brother and I were sliding down the slide and our brother took a photo of us. 

After taking some selfies, we all continued walking around the Basin. After we went around the basin once, we all got hungry so we went to Burger king to have some juicy and delicious burger. When we reached Burger King we all ate a lot of food. The burger stasfiged my hunger. I also ate the fries with the ice cream. It was deliciously creamy. Soon we were full and we headed home.

When we arrived home, I rode on my bike for and before, my leg fall asleep, so I had to rest it. While I was resting my tired legs, I played a game of chess with my cousin. After 10 rounds I felt tired and I decided to sleep on my awesome comfortable bed to replenish my energy.

It was a really cool experience walking around the Basin. It was tiring but fun. I hope I can take my bike net time so I can go around the basin even quicker.

Happy birthday to me! By Rhonda

On Thursday 1st of october it was my brithday. I was very happy and excited. My birthday celebration was held at my house.


We had a chocolate cake and it looked very tasty and delicios. My dad put ten candles on the cake and lit it with a lighter. Then everyone sang me a happy birthday song to me. I made a wish before blowing out the candle. 

After that my dad cut the cake into twelve pieces and gave a piece to each one of us. We saved a piece of the cake for my mum because she was at work. I really enjoyed the cake.

Then we watched a movie. We watched straight outta compton. I didn't really like the movie because it had alot of bad words in it. 

Later on I felt tired. I had so much fun celebrating my birthday with my family.
Next time I hope we celebrate my birthday somewhere else and that my mum will be able to join us.

Do you want to play dodgeball? By Joshua

It's 12 noon and after 30 minutes of driving, we finally arrived at the new indoor trampoline park. Inside the trampoline park was a vast foam pit for people to do flips on, a large basketball hoop waiting to be dunked a professional Olympic trampoline and an area filled with lots trampoline for you to do flips too! However, all alone in the corner of the indoor trampoline park, was a colossal dodge ball arena.

When the barrier swung open and the rules were already given, I sprinted as fast as lightning, just to get the basketball. Immediately started jumping higher and higher on the trampolines. Until I jumped high like an eagle soaring through the sky, I rocketed the basketball down the hoop. Swish!

Next,I did a forward flip, or as I call it, the ''Swanton bomb''. Swanton bomb is a high risk (dangerous) move that can easily injure your back. A Swanton bomb is when the person is slowly flipping himself forward and landing on your back. It is also a wrestling move performed by ''Jeff Hardy"(World Wrestling Entertainment).

After half an hour of jumping and vaulting over platform, I went to go play dodge ball with my cousin. We first started with a game of four against four, it was fantastic! When the game began, balls were immediately thrown at me. Luckily I dodged them before..... Bang! For a second, all I saw was darkness, until I had realised I had been hit in the face by a dodge ball.


Today I had a fun day because I got the chance to eventually play and do flips with my cousins. At the end of the day, I was rewarded with the new blueberry frozen Fanta. It was so delicious! Next time, I hope I stayed longer so I could show my cousins more cool flips.

Have you ever been to the Fortuna restaurant? By Alessandra

Image result for restaurantLast Friday was my papa’s birthday, so we decided to take him out for dinner to Fortuna restaurant up in Sky City.

It was a dark, cold evening so we put on  our warm jackets and we went to the restaurant.
First, we had to look for a park. After a while, we found a parking on level six. Then we went in the elevator to go up to the restaurant.
When we got to the restaurant, my aunt Emily had already made a booking for us. We checked with the waiter and within a minute, we were taken to our tables.
First we had to wait for my cousin Danny to arrive because he was stuck in traffic. Son he arrived and went to eat some lovely food.
I had ham, chips and some fish. When I had finished all the savory food I had cheese cake and some ice cream. When I ate the cheese cake   and ice cream. When I ate the cheese cake, it just melted in my mouth and it was so delicious. After that, went home.
Maybe next time we could go to the top of the Sky tower and we could spend more time at the restaurant because there was a lot of food for us to try.

Wow, I just did a flip! By Aiden

On Wednesday the 7th of October, I went to Dialled Tramp Park with my brother. We went on Wednesday because it was the school holidays. When we got there, we had to watch a video which explained to us the rules. One of the rules was in that we weren't allowed to lie on the trampoline because others might jump on you. We had to tell each other one of the rules before we went on the trampolines. After we reminded each other of the rules. We took off our shoes and went on the tramps. I did so many back flips which I learnt from another trampoline park called Jump. Dialled Tramp Park is the newest tramp park in Mount Wellington.


Image result for tramp parkI went on the tramps with excitement while my bother went to the basketball hoop and did a lot of amazing dunks. I bounced around for a while then I went to the foam pit. The foam was covered with big leather blanket which made it easier to get out of the pit. I did front flips into the foam pit while little kids ran past. We nearly hit the little kids but I stopped jut in time and let them through because I didn't want to hurt them. Ten minutes later I went to the dodge ball arena while brother slammed more astonishing dunks. The dodge balls were soft and not hard like real ones. I was doing flips on the tramps to try and put the other teams off their throw. It worked and I flipped over a lot of dodge balls.  If the ball bounced and hit us we wouldn't be out as it had hit us on the full.

After a couple of balls to the face, my brother decided to join the opposing team. He can throw really hard and so I was scared of him. I flipped over his shot and I felt proud of myself but the next ball that my brother threw hit me. I felt dizzy so I went to the outside of the arena to wait for the next round because I had become addicted to dodge ball. We were getting more an more sweaty so we decided to get a drink and go back to the dodge ball arena. While I was waiting for the next round so I did some flips on the trampolines outside the dodge ball arena. When the next round came, it was down to me and my brother. He went for the shot and I dodged it. Then it was my turn and he caught it so I was out. A couple rounds later even though both  my brother and I were worn out. we kept going. I was so pumped up that after I went for some water, I immediately ran back to the arena, I got all of them out and I won. I was so happy and pumped. Unfortunately soon after that round, our session was up and we went McDonald's to
I have a Big Mac. We met some of the people at the dodge ball arena at McDonald's and we said, "Hi" to them. After we ate our Big Macs, we went home to have a rest.

I felt happy because I played many rounds of dodge ball. I want to spend longer time at Dialled Tramp Park and practise my dodging skills.
