First we went on the bus to the zoo and i played chop sticks with my friend Kris. we saw the sky
tower and half way i almost fell asleep but playing chop sticks made me awake. to see the penguins
and the seals and we went down somewhere else and we saw the seals in the water. then we saw
the alligators and i thought it was camouflage then i saw it on the grass and  then we had morning
tea. After that i finished morning tea and then we went to see birds. Nearly at the end we went to the
bug lab and it was a little scary and there were 4 scary houses hornets,giant wasps,scary flowers
that had something in it and i forgot the last house. Then we had lunch and walked around again.
finally we finished walking around and we went to the bus and went back to school and me and my
mum went home early because the teacher said we could go early.
