After breakfast we were off to the markets to buy anything we needed for Pickering. We didn’t really need anything but still why not? I got 8 erasable pens and a reading light for traveling. We hurried back to get loaded into the car to drive to Pickering. The drive was 5 hours long with a stop at Subway for lunch. At Subway I met two of my cousins and my uncle. Once we got to Pickering we had to find the place we were staying at. I had found it first but we had already gone past it so we had to turn around. I don’t know where they would be without me.
Meeting my cousins face to face was kinda weird because I haven’t seen them for nine years. I was kinda shy. The reason I was shy is because they were all boys. None of them were my age either. There was a girl who is two – does that count?
There was one thing we all had in common that we loved and it was playing minecraft. The boys were doing stuff that boys would do like blowing up tnt right next to someone’s (my) house. Then building up to highest block height and spawning random things like pigs, cows and villagers. After we playing minecraft for hours it was already dinner time. I had already quickly unpacked before we played minecraft and it was the first day meeting my cousins.
There were 15 of us all staying together:
Our family, our NZ Nanny, My Great Gran and Maia, Grandad, and my 2 Uncles and their families.
6 children and 9 adults. Luckily the 2 farmhouses we were staying in were very nice and spacious.
