Daffodil festival

Today we went to the daffodil festival.

But before we went there I had a game and although we lost 2-0 it was a good game. After that we went back home to eat lunch – Mama made us fried eggs with bacon strips – yum.

When we where done we packed our stuff a.k.a water and yoyos (we got them on Saturday from Papa as presents from his trip to Sydney) and made our way off to one tree hill park. It was quite a long walk from our home there and back – actually it was about 12kms for all of us and additionally had been running up and down the field for an hour during my game.

When we arrived at the festival it wasn’t to packed at the start, so the girls made a paper daffodil and mum got some plants for free. When we moved on there where fairy’s but i couldn’t see what they where doing cause that area was full of people. Then we found the face paint station and the line was 20 kids long we joined in. To pass the waiting Max,Vicki and me went and played tag in the trees nearby after round about 30 minutes it was the girls and Lukes turn. My little brother got a dinosaur on his cheek, Vicki got a rainbow on her forehead and Cecilia has a fairy on her cheek. Then went all the way back to the end of Onehunga mall to go get some ice cream.

We went to our favourite ice cream shop liky liky we had a lot of delicious ice cream.

holidays at cable bay

In the school holidays Mum and Mad had a break with their work so we packed our stuff and our toys to get right up to cable bay and on the first day we stayed at the holiday house and relaxed.

The next day we went to the Sand dunes, but we couldn’t ride on our Body Boards because it was to wet and it could have hurt because the Wind was so strong so the sand raced onto our feet , so we went to a light House and it was very windy, and at the bottom of the hill were the light House was standing there were some signs which told us which Direction to a few country’s and city’s.

On the third day we went to our friends Robert & Laura and they live on a Farm, they have 5 cows , 2 goats , 4 Chicken’s , 2 cats & 1 dog which is called Max. So my friend Robert had a great electronic helicopter but it wasn’t charged so we charged it but it still hasn’t worked and then I had to go home.

On the fourth day we went to a Beach which was just across the road and there were many rocks were we could climb on so at first every one was climbing on the rocks then Papa, Niclas and I started to play soccer with bare feet and that did hurt a bit.

At night time mum went into the kitchen and wanted to put the toaster away and then she saw a mouse and she started screaming!!! So we locked it into the bathroom and it stayed in there till the next people came into the house. But in the afternoon we went to Robert again and we tried the helicopter but it didn’t work so I asked Papa if he could have a look at it so he charged it for a while and then we tried it again but it still didn’t work and we tried it till we went back home but it still didn’t work.

On the last day it was Cecilia’s birthday & we went back home so we packed our stuff and started cleaning up so we went strait back home and we finally saw our birds called hansa and rostock and we couldn’t wait till we slept in our beds again.

football weekend

Yep – Max startet last week with his first game for 10th grade silver from Ellerslie – they lost very unluckily but played quite well. That was followed by Vicki’s first Netball tournament on Sunday – where we spent most of Sunday last week.

During the week Max got selected for the second 10th grade cricket team – and did quite well according to the teacher as he scored a 4 (whatever that means 🙂 ).

Niclas had his first 11 a side game on the big pitch today and did very very well – unfortunately it was a 1:0 loss but the team has never played a competitive match before and did quite good for that.
Also great second game from Max against Bay Olympics in Greenbay yesterday – Stuart came by to watch him play – they won 2:3 and Max played pretty good and had one shot on goal as a winger – but as soon as he became the defender – nobody was able to get past him – I think he found his position yesterday 🙂

Well done boys & Vicki!

The next weekends till about August will be usually a Saturday match for Max and a Sunday match for Niclas. That’ll prevent us from doing a lot over the time – Marcus is quite excited – while Claudia – not so much 😀

necessary commuter upgrade & new coach for Niclas

Hey there,

Niclas had his first training today and he also has a new coach. We see this with a laughing and a weeping eye (not sure if you can also say this in English) as we/Niclas really liked Ben (his coach from last year) – his new coach is Fred de Jong – an ex All White striker who also played with Wynton back in his active days. So we are looking forward to see the team play on the big pitch in 3 weeks in the metro league here in AKL.

Due to the fact that Marcus’ back is a bit achy we decided it is time to say goodbye to the Ninja that Marcus owned for such a long time.
So the new commuter is now is the BMW R nineT that Marcus call’s his own since today.
