Walk to the Sky Tower

On Monday we did a walk to the Sky Tower from home in Glen Innes and Karl and I went on our scooters while mama walked. It was 11.8km.

Before we left, we got everything we needed: food, water, raincoat, and our backpacks.  Karl and I also had our helmets.

On the way, we talked to a man at the old boatsheds by Tamaki Drive.  He showed us his boat and his bosses boat in another shed.  His bosses boat was quite big and was 90 years old.  His boat was a bit younger.

At the Ports of Auckland there were a few ships in the harbour.  We saw lots of people on their BMX bikes who are here to compete in a tournament.

We got a bus home and on the bus ride, we saw a big roll-on roll-off ship that had docked while we were at the Sky Tower.

I felt happy at the end of our adventure because I did not think we would make it all the way, and yet we kept on going and succeeded.  We did not give up!

Saturday and Sunday

On Saturday morning I didn't watch my brother play rugby for the first half of his game that he played but I did watch the second half of the game. It was at the home ground of his team. His team is called Marist Black Magic Under 10 Restricted. Karl is a forward. His team won. On Saturday night we went to the Rugby at  Eden Park: Black Ferns vs England and the Black Ferns won. The Chiefs played the Blues and the Chiefs won the game. We did not watch the full game because we thought the Chiefs would win the game.

On Sunday, Oma, Oom Ron and Tante Norma took Karl and I swimming.  We got to have some free time first, then we had our swimming lesson.  We've both been swimming since we were babies, and I like swimming.  If we go to the beach, I like to swim out far and my lessons have helped me with this.

As soon as swimming was finished, and we'd had our shower, we went to the Scout Hall for our Papa's birthday party.  He had turned 50 on the 2nd July.  He was born in 1963 in the Netherlands.  Mama had decorated the hall with orange balloons as orange is the colour of the Netherlands.  I had a fun time there because we got to play outside with friends and Karl and I went home in Uncle Malcolm's car.  He let us play on his phone while he had a drink with Papa.  Papa enjoyed his day.
