The Block

For the last two weeks I’ve been on school holidays and have done lots of great things. On the middle weekend I went to the “block”, click here to read a previous post I have written about the block. These holidays I went to the “block” with our family friends Wendy, Anthony, Emily and Cameron. Cameron who’s also in my grade this year has written a guest post about our trip.

On the holidays I went to Jarrod’s Block with my family. I rode the quad bike. I went through the muddy puddles and mud went everywhere. The back of my coat was covered in mud.

Jarrod and I went yabbying.  We caught lots of big and little yabbies. Jarrod and I found some rabbit holes so we made up some homemade traps with wire and sticks.  But we did not catch any rabbits. Jarrod’s Dad got a rabbit and we used this for yabby bait.

My sister Emily rode Jarrod’s motorbike, it is a two wheeler.  Emily loved it so much she did not want to get off the motorbike and her coat was also covered in mud.

For dinner on the BBQ we had dim Sims, sausages, hamburgers and hash browns cooked by the Dads’ it was delicious. For breakfast we had bacon and eggs on the BBQ.

I slept in a room with Jarrod, Tyler and Melane in my sleeping bag.

Tyler, Jarrod, Emily and I all had a turn at Emily’s homemade rocket launcher.  It was awesome and we all got wet. The rocket went high up in the sky and my Dad held the pole.

Thanks for a great weekend Jarrod, Tyler, Melane and Cameron.
