Sentosa (Open-Water Swim practice)

I met up with a group to do some open-water swim practice in preparation for my next triathlon (in less than a month!). The sign in the photo was posted in the parking lot.

Happy 4th Birthday, Henry!

My Trip to New Zealand by Anna

We got our campervan and we went to the Antarctic Center and we got to have coffee at a NZ coffee shop in Christchurch. We got to go to Hokitika and we went to the gorge and it was so pretty. The waters were so turquoise.

We got to go skiing and skiing was my favorite part of New Zealand! I liked the skiing because we got to go on the big magic carpet but at the end my feet felt so cold. At the ski resort we got to eat pasta and the pasta was some of the best pasta ever but the pasta that we got in Wanaka [insert name of restaurant] was so much better.

We did the gondola and we got to see the kiwis but it was dark and I couldn't see the kiwis very well because the kiwis like it dark and it was dark there when it was actually day. It was weird that there were red lights in the kiwi place, I wonder why they weren't orangey-red lights because the sun is orangey-red.

We got to do the Akaroa Dolphin cruise and I played "fall-over" with Henry. How you play fall over is you stand up on the boat and when the wave comes, you fall over on the bench and sit down.

We went on a glowworm cruise and the glowworms they looked liked stars and Sarah said that one of them looked like a constellation of a smiley face.

We went to a beach where there was a lighthouse but we didn't get to go in the lighthouse but we did get to hop from rock to rock in the ocean and it was so so so so so so fun.

We went to the Moreaki Boulders and I climbed on one and I got to jump down and I climbed on to one of the rocks and onto one of the boulders but there was water on one side so I had to jump over the water when I jumped down.

The litle blue penguins was so windy and so dark and it was very very cold. But we did get to see the Little Blue Penguins but it wasn't very fun because it was so windy and cold and so rainy.

We went to the Sir Edmund Hillary museum. He was the person who climbed Mt. Everest and there was a life-sized picture of him and Daddy is the same size as Sir Edmund Hillary. We got to see a Black Holes movie and it was so cool. And it's so weird how people don't know how there is a black hole in the middle of the milky way. But I think it was because a star exploded and turned into a big black hole and all the stars around it got to go into it and that was how it gets so big. It was so weird that in the middle of the black hole that there is a teeny tiny space in the middle of it and I wonder how the black hole can fit so many stars into that teeny tiny space.

My Trip to New Zealand by Sarah

We got our campervan. The campervan's bathroom was really tiny. We got to play at the table on the drive. The single bed was my favorite bed to sleep in because I had nobody rolling around at my side and also that when it rained I couldn't hear the rain.

When we went on the Akaroa Dolphin tour we got to see the smallest and rarest dolphins in the whole wide world. It was windy and cold. We saw lots of dolphins. We saw two at one time. And we saw one at one time. And the waves got really big. And I decided to go inside because it was too cold.

When we went to the big magic carpet when we were skiing it was really fun when I went down the hill really fast. Skiing was like almost the best thing in the whole New Zealand.

In the glow-worm cave it was really wet and I felt like the cave was going to explode because there was so much water in the cave. That night when I went to bed, when I looked up, when I was sleeping at the top of the campervan, I thought I saw glowworms on the ceiling. And when we were at the glowworms, some of the glowworms made a shape like a smiley face.

At the LIttle Blue Penguins, it was cold and windy just like the Akaroa dolphin cruise. It was so windy my eyes were watering. The Little Blue Penguins were really small and cute. They waddled a lot and mommy got really bad pictures. They were really cute but I wish I could have stayed longer if it wasn't too windy and cold. And when the LBP were in the water, they looked like Little Blue Ducks instead of LBPs. I couldn't imagine what the LBP's feathers would feel like.

I loved the inside of our campervan.

I fell asleep on the bus and on the boat at the glowworm tour. At the trip back to New Zealand I got a blue penguin stuffed animal and a LBP grow-egg. And I also got a kiwi one and um and we went to the gondola ride and we went to the Moreaki Boulders and then we read.

It was fun skiing down the hill and I loved the falling down part. We got a campervan and I loved the outside of it, too.

Darth Vader & Storm Troopers

Henry wanted me to make a Darth Vader mask from some construction paper. Everyone liked the design so much we made two Storm Trooper masks as well.
