The Giant Jumping Pillow

I knew this holiday in Napier wasn’t going to be the best ever, but it definitely wasn’t the worst. Our campground was pretty cool, and my favourite part of it was that there was a massive jumping pillow. This gave my friends an idea which we were eager to try out.

Our army of four dashed over to the pillow, cautious not to trip and fall.Outside it was dark and wet. The plan was just to play on the pillow for a while, have a short swim and then head for the showers.You’ll find out soon that it wasn’t very well thought through.

Getting on was easy, but when I tried to run to the other side I slipped straight away. I was a little bit sore but still wanted to try it again. Soon everyone got in to it and we would gang up on one person, to take them down.

In all the fun there were some low lights. I don't exactly know what happened, but it seemed that everything on the ground had ended up on the pillow. So when I slipped over I got lots of stinging cuts on my feet, knees and elbows.Ouch!

Not only did we get heaps of cuts, but we had to run back to the cabin in our towels. It was embarrassing but all worth it because we had heaps of fun on the giant jumping pillow.


  1. Hi Litia,

    What an amazing post. I really enjoyed reading it. It seems like you had a lot of fun playing on that huge pillow. That must have been very sore when you got the cuts and stuff on yourself. I hope they've healed by now. You might want to check out what my holiday highlight was. You can just click on my name above.
