Staying At A Farm

One really cool thing we did in the holidays was staying at a Farm. At the Farm we rode on horses and I was excited and my horses name was Dodge.  Even though milking the cows was heaps of fun I was terrified that one of them would poo or pee on us.  My mum and dad got poo on their jackets and my sister got poo on her shoes too!  Yuck!
We went kayaking on a lake which was so much fun!  I even ended up going by myself and it was easy!  At night we drove down the farm road to see glow worms.  I thought the glow worms were going to be bigger, but i liked seeing them light up everywhere - like LED lights!
Probably my favourite thing at the farm was hanging out with my family and seeing my cousins from Australia.  Aroha and I squeezed grapefruit to make juice for everyone. We had to wait for the cows to leave the orchard because the cows liked the grapefruit too!  Semaia (my big brother) picked off grapefruit for us because he has really long arms.
I really hope we go back to visit the farm again - maybe with different cousins next time.

New Years Eve

On the 31st of December 2016, me, my dad and my sisters went to Auckland Hospital. We went to watch the fireworks for New Years eve. We went there because it was a great view of the sky tower and we were going to pick up our mum too because she works there. After we picked up my mum, we waited for a while until the numbers started counting down on the skytower till midnight.  Everyone around us was counting down too and we all shouted when it was 2017.
On our way to have dinner before heading home, we looked up and there was a line of fire going down Mount Wellington! We stopped to have a look and saw three fire engines all trying to put out the fire.
