Whose family are we going to meet today?
Honu is four years old.
He lives with his mum and cat, Catini, in a town by a river.
-He often visits his grandparents, who live close by.
-Let's do the Lulu dance, ready?
-I wonder what they're up to today?
Honu is at his grandparents' house.
He's having a water pistol fight with Grandpappy.
-Five paces. No cheating.
-This time, we need to go ten.
One, two, three, four, five, six seven...
..Eight, nine, ten!
It's easy to play, just get each other soaking wet!
I'm not going to squirt you!
You're my prisoner now. Right, how's that?
I'm going to stop him from squirting me.
Good idea, Granny. A shield will stop the water.
But Grandpappy is a water pistol champ.
-Oh, you got my face!
-Look at me, look at poor Grandpappy!
Uh-oh, Honu! Now Grandpappy has the shield.
But Honu plays a little trick...
Grandpappy, see that hole? Is it broken?
Grrr! You rotter!
Grandpappy is definitely wetter than Honu.
-Give me a kiss? Just there.
-That was a great game, but I think it may be time to dry off.
Honu has a big surprise waiting for him -
-a new bike!
-Was this the colour you wanted?
-The dancer one.
Just sit on it, Hon. You just sit on and get comfortable.
Now, this is very important, Hon.
Let's just put your crash helmet on.
-It's Honu's first time riding a bike with two wheels.
I'll push you around and you pedal along the garden.
Pedal hard, though. Keep going, that's it. Pedal pedal pedal.
He'll need help to begin with.
-Steer and pedal. Pedal!
-The trick is to keep the bike moving.
You're not pedalling!
Keep your feet on those pedals. Pedal, don't forget.
-Don't ever stop, Honu.
-Don't ever stop pedalling.
-I've got you.
Balance. Look, you're going, all by yourself, look. Pedal, come on!
-Pedal. Look, balance. Look.
-Keep going, good on you! Well done.
Shall I show you how to do it, Honu?
I'll show you.
Grandpappy, I think you may be a little big for this bike.
-Ha-ha-ha! You fell off it!
-It's not so easy, is it?
Grandpappy's OK. He's just pretending to fall off.
-Can you do that again?
-It's a bit small, that's the trouble.
-Do that again.
-I'll try again. Argh!
Oh, Grandpappy. He's only joking!
-Are you all right, Grandpappy?
-Oh, I'm OK.
-Grandpappy, do that again!
-No, it's too small for me, Hon. One last go.
We'll just take either side.
With more help from Mum and Granny,
soon Honu will be able to ride the bike on his own.
Pedal, pedal, pedal, pedal!
-Honu and Mum are buying flowers for a very special person.
We've come to get some flowers for his Great-Grandma. So...
Wow, look at all these flowers, Honu!
What colours would she like? Do you think she'd like some of those?
-She likes pink and purple.
-How many would you like of those?
-How about these pretty ones here?
-She likes these spiky ones.
How about some nice-smelling lavender?
-See what you think to that. Does it smell nice?
-I've got one of them.
-What, in your garden?
Honu chooses lots of different shapes and colours for Great-Granny.
We haven't got any of this spidery one, have we?
-What about some of this?
-Oh, yeah, that's gorgeous, isn't it?
-Shall we put some more of these in, too?
Let's put it all together.
-OK. There we go.
-Oh, these are beautiful. Wow!
What's your favourite flower here, Honu?
-Do you think Great-Granny's going to like these?
-I'm sure Great-Granny will be very pleased with the flowers.
-Thank you very much.
-Thank you ever so much.
Honu, Mum and Granny arrive at the home where Great-Granny lives.
Are these for me?
He's very excited about giving her the flowers he chose.
-Thank you, darling. Oh, they're lovely.
-There's a lavender.
Which one's the lavender?
The teeny-tiny purple ones right at the bottom.
-Great-Granny, what is your favourite flowers?
-Oh, that's lucky. Have we got some roses in there, Honu?
I'm lucky, aren't I? To have that kind of a bouquet.
-Did the roses smell nice?
-They smelled of chocolate.
Did the roses smell of chocolate?
I don't think roses really smell of chocolate, Honu.
I thought maybe you'd come back for lunch.
-Would you like that?
-I would indeed.
They all travel back to Granny and Grandpappy's house.
A piece of melon, Granny?
Honu, can you remember whose mummy Great-Granny is?
-Who's Granny's mummy?
-Great-Granny. Who's Mummy's mummy?
-Mummy, Mummy's mummy, and Mummy's mummy's mummy, all together!
I know, Granny! I could play football with Great-Granny.
Fancy a game of football?
Got your football boots with you?
I don't think Great-Granny plays football, Honu!
-How about a different game?
-Hide and seek?
Would you like to play hide and seek with Honu?
You can think of some good hiding places.
Great-Granny, if you find the best hiding place,
I won't be able to find you.
And then what happens if no-one can find Great-Granny?
-And she gets left out overnight?
-That wouldn't be good.
-Honu has spotted something to play with...
-Er, where's Honu going?
..Granny's walking frame!
Honu's going to have a ride on your walking frame, Granny.
-Granny, can you push me?
-No, I can't push you.
-Can you push me, Mum?
-OK, you ready?
-Can you make the noises?
Not too quickly, Mum!
That was too fast.
-Are you OK?
-Honu's OK - straight back up.
-Mummy, I need to push it.
Yes, pushing is much safer.
-What are you trying to do, Honu?
-I'm pushing Pedro.
You know him. He's my little invisible dog.
-He's your invisible dog?
-Yeah, you know that.
-Tell Great-Granny what type of dog is he.
-A French Bulldog.
-And what colour is Pedro?
-Now he's back to green.
-He's back to green, is he?
-A green dog? I've never seen one of those.
-Did you have a nice day?
-Yeah, I had a lovely day, Honu.
I'll have to spend another day with you.
What a lovely treat it's been for Great-Granny, and Honu.
-You're a very big boy, aren't you?
-He's very helpful, isn't he, Granny?
Hons! Do you want to come and have a go on your bike?
-Can I ride to there?
-Yeah, you certainly can.
-I want to ride all the way.
-Yeah, of course you can.
-You're good now, huh?
Honu has been practising lots since his first time on his new bike,
-but will he be able to ride it all on his own?
-Just go for it. Go.
-Slowly at first, Honu.
-Well done! Round to the back, turn, turn, turn!
Woo! Ha-ha-ha! Got to get the hang of the steering again, haven't you?
Yeah! Excellent! Turn. Big turn, all the way round. Yes!
-I'm going to go into the back garden.
-Round the corner.
The garden is a safe place to go a little faster.
-Look, Honu's riding all on his own, Granny!
Keep going! Keep going! Oh, well done.
Mum decides Honu is ready to ride on the road,
and she's chosen a quiet place with no traffic.
-Honu is looking much steadier on the bike.
I done it backwards!
Again, again, again!
-Do you like riding your big boy's bike?
-Do you want to keep going?
Excellent. All the way round?
Wow. Very good!
Look at him go.
Now that Honu can ride properly,
he'll have lots of adventures on his bike.
-Come on, let's go home now.
I wonder who we're going to meet next time on Our Family?
