Going to Tairua
My Writing about my birthday:
“Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to Ana, Happy Birthday to you!” My siblings all came into my room with a tray of bacon, eggs and hash browns. Even though I had already been up, I hopped back into bed when I smelt the bacon cooking. We had planned to go to Jump with my friends then have an Amazing Race along the waterfront from Mission Bay to Bastion Point. Everyone was coming at 1pm so I decided to tidy up my room a bit, even though it was my birthday.
1pm came and I was on the road waiting for my best friend Josephine and my cousins. My cousins came first followed shortly by Josephine. We went inside and watched tv, talked and waited till we could go to Jump. Since it was the middle of the holidays, me and Josephine had a lot to talk about. We talked for about an hour before we set out to Jump. It was about a ½ hour drive till we got to jump and when we got there, I was so excited, I couldn’t stop smiling. Josephine and I had never been to jump but my cousins, Levi and Jordan had so they knew what to expect.
We jumped for 1 hour and we spent most of the time playing dodgeball. Jordan and Levi were always the last in and after a while, we decided to try the sponge pit. First I swang on the rope then fell in, then I jumped in from the platform. After our hour finished, we all got slushies which was really great because it was soooo HOT!!
We had a barbecue dinner and after dinner, my best friend Hope came!! I was sooooo excited because I didn’t think that she would come. I ran up to her and gave her a huge hug. Since Hope was a year 8 in 2014, she would go to another school so I would hardly see her anymore. I was so happy, I was still buzzing when we left for the Amazing Race.
Amazing Race was really cool and Levi and I won! It started at the Mission Bay fountain, then to the beach and after that we had to run along the waterfront towards the Yacht club. At each of the places there were challenges. I was pretty tired while we were running and to make it worse, we had to run all the way to Bastion Point! At Bastion Point, we had to do a puzzle, eat raw noodles out of a fizzy drink, stuff our mouths with marshmallows and say, “Fluffy Bunnies!” it has to be clear so our judge (My little sister) could hear it before we could roll down the hill to our pit stop. Levi and I were the first there so we got a packet of Party Mix.
After the Amazing Race we went home to watch a movie. The boys went home because the girls were sleeping over. We watched Step Up 5 but Hope fell asleep during the movie. After everyone else went to sleep, Josephine drew on Hope’s face. When Hope woke up in the morning she looked in the mirror and since Josephine was still asleep, Hope drew on her face. It was so funny because when Josephine woke up, she didn’t even know and she was just talking normally.
Soon they had to leave, I was sad because I didn’t know if I would ever see Hope again and I was sad because I had to wait another 2 weeks till school started and I had to wait till then to see Josephine. It was one of the best birthdays that I have had and I spent it with the best people. :-)
