On Friday 15 July we had our Atoa Tugaga Family Reunion. It was held in Hawaii. It was really fun!
We were given our name tags and put into groups. Like green, red, blue and yellow.
We hugged our cousins and it felt good to see them again. We had lunch and it was yummy. We had lots of fruits and sandwiches to eat.
We then took our bags to the tents. It was a cool tent because it was by the beach! It looked like a humungus party with all my cousins, aunties and uncles in the tents beside us.
I could smell the salty waves from the beach. It reminded me of Castlepoint beach in Masterton. When I was a baby I ate the sand!
My favourite memory of the reunion was swimming with my cousin Jenna and Uncle Tony and my Dad. The waves tried to drown me by pushing my whole body into the big blue sea. My cousin grabbed my hand and dragged me out of the sea.
After that my cousin Jenna and Uncle Tony help me to swim in the sea.
