OUR HOUSE CONCERT!

Last weekend on Jan 24th Me and Alina and Krockett, and Grant all went to the concert Our House. It was out side at a huge park. There were about 3 different areas with different DJ's all day playing music.






We were Trying to stay cool in the shade so we wouldn't get burned.
My feet got really dirty cause one of the stages was in a hanger that had a dirt floor.

There was an incident where Grant lost the plot while waiting in line for food and drinks. We waited in line for about 30 min and we get to the front and the lady tells us sorry we are only taking cash. Grant only reacted because we had been searching for an ATM machine and couldn't find one and this was the second line we stood in and got to the front and they tell us sorry only cash. So he screamed the four letter word really loud and caused a ton of attention and I quickly ran away cause I hate having attention on me!
Turns out they have this huge event and they don't have an ATM machine at all and they don't have any signs posted saying only cash, which they really should!
The guard came up to Krockett and said were you the one who was screaming and he said no the guy was a lot taller then me hahhah and there was Grant standing right next to him it was so funny!









All in All we had a super fun time!!!!

me at my computer.

Big Day Out Jan 16th

On Jan 16th Grant and I went to the Big Day Out, a music festival that goes from 11am till midnight. There were a ton of people every where.













On our way home before we caught a cab from town we saw these boxes of chips that someone had set out and they were full so grant and I each grabbed as many as we could. Apparently they had just expired and so some one set them on the street for people to have. The cab driver must have thought we were crazy!













When we got home I was still taking pictures hahhahah.

Summer Holiday Part 2

December 31st Grant and I drove up to his family batch in Doubtless bay. When we arrived his dad was there making a few repairs and left after we all had a cup of tea together.
The house is the one at the very top of the hill on the left.
This is the view looking out the front of the house.
These are the sand dunes between his house and the water.


That night we went to a house party that was about 20 min away for new years eve. Of course it rained but that was the last of the rain for quite a while.



Arriving at the house party.

Starting to party


I won the limbo contest for the girls.

Dancing


more dancing. That night I slept in the car I could only make it till about 2 everyone else stayed up the entire night and when I woke up at 9am Grant was coming to get me and we walked up to the house and everyone was still drunk and still drinking and partying! I couldn't believe it!

January 1st still at the house party. Later that day I drove us back to the house and everyone slept the rest of the day! Eventually we went into the closest place to get food and waited for 45min for a sandwich.

This is us waiting

Later that night crashed out.


The next day we all went to the beach and there was a sting ray in the water, right by my leg.





Drinking one night.



Grant's boat that we fished on.

Matt with his burned shirt hahhaha funny story.


Trying to shoot a bird, and showing off his mullet that he made me cut for him.

One day I stayed home cause there wasn't enough room on the boat for everyone and I was super bored but thankfully I found the paint and crafts that Grant's mom apparently use to do on vacation. yay!

Craft Time!!!!







one of the days we went to the beach

Going out on the boat fishing
When we were done fishing I caught 2 by the way, we jumped off the boat and swam to that sandy beach and played around we were the only ones there.



Then as we were leaving to go back to the boat ramp I spotted what I thought was a shark and screamed shark but then quickly realized it was a dolphin.

Grant immediately jumped in the water to swim with them. Turns out there were 4 and all they wanted to do was swim and play.






Grants short shorts.


Here is one of the dresses my mom got me for Christmas!


The sunset while fishing one night.




What the batch looks like inside.




Above is the bathroom and to the right is the room we slept in.




Garage but when you take the boat out it turns into a room.







Getting ready for fishing.
One day we went to a beach where you had to drive on the sand and then we decided that the good waves were all the way at the end of the beach so we walked about a mile. After surfing everyone thought they would try sand surfing with the boogie board and Grant's wipe out was the best by far we all got a really good laugh.


Towards the end of the trip we went for a walk to a little inlet and Krokett took his remote control surfer to ride the waves.





laying in the grass







Remote control surfer

Shells we collected while Krockett played with the toy.





When everyone else left and it was just Grant and I we went to the closest winery. They just happen to have won an award from the LA County fair which is where I worked before I came here to be a nanny.




A day or so before we left to come home we drove into Mangonui and had the supposed best fish and chips. We really wern't impressed they were pretty greasy and really over priced.




On our drive home we stopped at a beach to check out the surf and I took this pic.

At one beach Grant acctually did surf but I decided to watch instead.


Catching a wave.
Yes I finally did it I finished the blog! This trip went from Dec 31st to Jan 13th!
