Mapua

 On the Queens Birthday Harry, Mum and I stayed at Mapua for the day and we went to the cafe and I got a cake that was 12 centimetres and it was chocolate with a cherry on the top and I had cream and raspberry sauce on the top. Soon it was all gone and it had made me a bit fat.
Then we jumped on our scooters and scootered down the pathway until we got to the wharf because we were going to get an icecream. Then we went to the sweet and sour Four Square and got some treats. I got m&ms in a packet. Harry got a cookies and cream icecream. I hope I can go again.

Silly Sentences

Jayden was very busy today at Reading Time making all these silly sentences. They all have capital letters and full stops. Some even have adjectives.

Maia's Weekend

On Saturday after Ripper Rugby my family and I went to Takaka.
We stayed at Pohara Beach Top Ten Holiday Park because Grandad was singing in the awards just down the road. We stayed in cabin 1. The cabin had 4 beds, pots and pans and a desk. It was 60 Dollars a night. Grandad got first in 2 sections and second in one section. Felicity Borcovsky got the most trophies.
On Monday we went to Anatoki Salmon farm. I caught the first Salmon. The last time when we went to the Anatoki salmon farm a few weeks later a flood happened.
