Episode 2:
Tahuri is performing with Te Tira Hou at Te Hui Ahurei a Tūhoe and while the girls are all there to cheer him on, it wouldn’t be a true Tumoana outing if there wasn’t some serious mocking of their dad while he attempts warrior status. The dogs need babysitting but will Whaea Anna be able to say goodbye?

Episode 3:
Rehia takes a class as a student teacher, hoping that the kids or the pressure don’t get the best of her. The whānau head off to Waiwera Hot Pools with Waka, one of the many whāngai the Tumoana’s have supported. And who’s brave boyfriend makes his first appearance?

It’s Rēhia’s 21st, Ngārangi’s birthday and the Kura Tuarua Nationals, all in one event filled weekend in Napier.
