During the weekends, we went up to Te Kuiti for my mum's aunty Georgie’s 80th birthday. We went along with my cousins (Tahu and TuAriki) and aunty (Alice). It was quite a long trip.
Arriving at the marae, it started pouring down with rain. As we hopped out, my aunty (and more) pulled up behind us. We got out and speed walked to the wharenui for a powhiri. Soon after the powhiri we gathered into the wharekai to have some lunch.
Along with my cousins we sat down at the kids table and ate. I sat in there with my mum until I noticed my cousin, brother and aunty had gone. Walking towards the wharenui, I could hear them running around.
Even though we had no T.V. or any internet we still had such an entertaining night, thanks to my cousin Kahu ( and no I didn’t make a mistake and put a “K” instead of a “T”) He is a real energetic kid and he’s quite naughty. Anyway to keep us entertained he danced to... ‘I’m Sexy And I Know It’ and it was a show alright.
It was full of funny things, crying moments and more funny things. Unfortunately, I couldn’t tell all the best moments but I can tell you one thing, I can’t wait until my next road trip!!!
