The car ride was pretty fast but it was SMELLY!!! Especially because I was the only girl in the car. The half Border Colly and half Golden retriever, was called Chip and His owner was named Curtis. (That’s my dads friend.) They were very cool!!! ( But kinda smelly....Just kidding)
We all got out of the car and started walking through the track surrounded by a forest like area. I was trying to tell Chip to hop into the water to give him something else to do, but he wouldn’t listen to me the first two times. "Tell him firmly" Curtis said, "OK" I replied. I was complaining that Chip would only listen to curtis an my dad but eventually it worked.
We were at the dog park. You know like on T.V where they take the dogs for runs around the coarse, and who ever gets the fastest time wins.....? , any way that was what I was doing with Chip, he was very good at the coarse but he was getting distracted by all of the other dogs that we met before. I was very tired after the first few runs but in the end I had a great time.
I was so hoping that I wouldn’t get run over by a stampede of dogs, but I was in the right place at the wrong time. So I went home with mud all over the side of my Jeans but I had a great time with my dad and I can NOT wait until I see him again.

The Awesome Riverside Camp!!!
(one week ago) YAY the holidays have finally arrived and I am so excited as the after school programme, called Riverside is having a camp at Willow Park. It is a Christian Camp ,near eastern beach Manukau. I thought that it was awesome that my school was doing this for Children who generally have a very boring holiday most time.
So Mr Burt sent all the Riversiders out of school with a Newsletter about this Camp. But there were only enough spots for 80 people. Though I thought that is was a bit unfair because some children couldn’t pay the whole fee!!! Luckily there were some very kind people who were more then happy to help us, by taking the price from $180 to only $60!! Because they payed the rest of it which I think is wonderful!!!
I was so grateful that I was able to go, because usually I wouldn’t have been able to, but my Nana payed for me to go which I thought was awesome. (Just like the camp was.)
As soon as I got to the camp I was so hoping that I would be in my friends Ashleigh’s team, and at first we weren’t but then she swapped just to be with me and Vivienne. ( It was naughty but oh well!!!!) We had Maree and Ocean as our leaders, but we had hoped that we would've had Helen and Paulitia instead. Though we did cope!!!!!!
We did so many activities there at Willow Park but my favourite one was the Chocolate fish hunt! It was so much fun beccause one of the places we looked, (Ashleigh,Vivienne,Jordeane and I) Heaps of people said that there were no more but there were 4 places that they didn't look through. They were behind two of the tables, in the fridge and also in one of the cupboards. Itr was awesome because we go to eat the chocolate afterwards!!!
Well I am so glad that I was able to go. But if I told about everything about this camp it would be one of the longest stories ever!!! Though I hope that everyone who helped us at the camp and who helped us get to the camp will know how much I apprieciate it, and I think I speak for everyone!!!!
THANK-YOU WILLOW PARK AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO HELPED US!!!!!!!!!!
