Waiwera Holiday



In the holidays my family and I went to Waiwera. That's where we usually go for our holiday. We left at 10 o'clock in the morning. By the time we got there I was half asleep, so when we got to the hotel I threw my self on my hotel bed! I was exhausted! But I had to help unpack the gear from the van though. I was going very slowly just like a snail strolling along the path but when my dad said that we were going to the Waiwera pools I zoomed like a race car! Wow! So I put on my togs and put my clothes on top. My mum took a while to get changed, so we turned on the telly!
Meanwhile at our real home my aunt Sele was looking after our house. I was wondering what she was up to. After quite a long time my mum and dad had their sunscreen and togs on. The cool thing about the hotel is that it's just across the road and we don't have to find a parking space! So we walked there.
When my mum and dad were paying for us to go inside the pools I was sneaking up on my little brother like a lion hunting an antelope. When I said 'boo' he fell down like coconuts from a tree and he started laughing. But I knew that he was frightened. Finally they had paid.We had reached my destination, well our destination. Before I knew it my little brother said "boo!!!" But I wasn't scared though. Okay maybe a little.
We were so excited to be at Waiwera pools. Some people were swimming just like fish! There were also slides like The Twister,The Speed Slide,The Black Hole,The Gut Buster, Squeeze,Bob's mistake,Short 'N' Sharp and of course The Kids Chute. I took off my t-shirt and there were my togs. Unfortunatley my parents told us to fold up our clothes and then we could hop inside the pool. I jumped like a frog into the water. The water was so warm.
After some time passed my brother Tanielu and I wanted to go on the slides. I've only been on Bob's Mistake Short 'N' Sharp and the kid's chute. So we went on Bob's mistake 1 million times! Okay maybe not 1 million times it's just that we felt like we went on it 1 million times. When my dad came we went on the Gut Buster, Squeeze, The Speed Slide and the twister. The twister isn't that scary to me, in fact none of the slides were scary to me. Turns out we all had a good time.
