I couldn't believe my dad when he asked me and my cousin Yulyvere if we wanted to go to a play called Cinderella. Instantly said 'yessss!' because my cousin and i wanted to get out of the house, it was so boring with the boys playing the PlayStation. My cousin got her clothes and we left.

On Saturday I woke up at half past 8 in the morning. I went downstairs to have breakfast but my mum said there's not enough time to. We had just enough time to get breakfast at M'cDonald's. We all had the same thing, sausage mcmuffin, hash brown and a hot chocolate.
"Mmmmm"is what we all said when we drank our hot chocolates.

We arrived to the street that the Logan Campbell Theater was on, A TRAFFIC JAM!!!!!!!!!''Oh no''yelled my dad,it was bad. Until we moved up to the entrance. It was packed, the only parking was where the race course was SO we parked there. It wasn't such a bad walk. We walked up to the the top block of the Logan Campbell Theatre. We sat in aisle 7,seats 112,113,114,115 and 116.

The lights dimmed and my baby sister Cree started to cry so my mum took her out for some treats to calm her down, it didn't work she still cried so mum ended up outside with her most of the time.

The first part was about how cruel the step mother was treating Cinderella, including her step sisters. The step sisters were men with beards dressed as the wicked step sisters, they were really funny. The next part is when the Fairy Godmother comes and sees Cinderella. She told her that she could go to the ball. She waved her magic wand, putting a beautiful blue dress on Cinderella, then she asked Cinderella to get 6 blind mice, a pumpkin and a lizard. She waved her magic wand and changed the 6 blind mice into 6 white horses, well they weren't real horses just horses made out of cardboard. She changed the pumpkin into a carriage and turned the lizard into a man to drive the carriage. The fairy God Mother told Cinderella to come back by midnight or else she will turn back into her normal self. Including the horses, carriage and man. This is when the show took a 20minute break. So my sisters, my cousin and i, shared a pack of lollies, chocolate and chips and walked around till the show started up again.

The second part was when she goes to the ball, has her dance with the Prince, loses her slipper and when the Prince asked her and her sisters to try on the slipper. Cinderella was the one who fit it! her stepsisters were very upset. Cinderella married the Prince and her bridesmaids were her stepsisters.

When the show was finally over,we came home. My mum decided that she was going to make BIG MAC burgers, YES BIG MAC BURGERS! So she did and we headed off to Cornwall Park. We found a good spot under a towering tree. Mum laid the mat out on the grass and dad put the food on it. I said the prayer and we dug in. I had 1 burger but my dad had 2, and it really tasted like a BIG MAC! My mum is a genius. My cousin and I jumped on our scooters. We went to the tunnel, road down the stairs and onto the foot path. We did that for a little while, then it packed up full of people so we left.

My sisters wanted to go to another park, mum and dad said at the same time''O.K''. This park was called Little Rangitoto park. We arrived there and there was heaps of kids on the flying fox. A lot more kids on the playground. I sprinted to the flying fox and stayed there until we left. The end of the day neared and I was getting tiered. It was time to leave.
I loved that awesome day I cant wait till next time.

  4. Hi Shoal,
    I really would have been disapointed if I were your mum. That sounded like a day of fun and sadness. You must have been very tired after all those fun activities. I had to stay home and do nothing the whole of the holidays. At first my mum had said that we were going to go to the show but we had ended up going to the movies. I was extreamlly sad.
