On Friday we went to the Glen Innes school hall and started decorating  for the wedding all night until 4:00am. We were all tired we went  back home and my mum and my aunty was cooking the food for the catering. I got shocked because they weren't tired at all they were just cooking all day long!!!!!!

Firstly, the bridesmaids and the best man  had to walk in  before the bride and groom walked in, it was romantic because they danced on the way in . There was music, the music was a dj song but a romantic dj song . They were dancing until they got to the stage.In addition, they were such a cute couple! I was so happy for my cousin in law  because it was a such a   beautiful wedding

Secondly, the father of Glen Innes church  was saying a prayer before eating the food. We ate pig,curry,potato salad,crab salad and pasta and tuna. There was 4 tables 2 on the left 2 on the right. The first table to start getting the to eat was the first 2 tables on the right  they had to line up it was a long line we had to wait until they had to finish.

After we ate the food we had desert it was DELICIOUS because there was lots of sweets to eat. I could get everything it just look yum 1 minute later the line was even longer!!! “I shouted I CAN’T WAIT THAT LONG NONONO!!!!!”

In conclusion ,we all cleaned the hall and cleaned the kitchen and  packed everything into the vehicles and equally shared the food and went home

Senitila First Panmure Bridge

We went down to the yacht club to view the site of the old demolished,unsafe swing bridge. Farmers use to go over the Panmure Bridge to the field to walk around.

Hemi was the first man to travel around selling fruit,vegetables. He used to take animals like cows on the punt across the river to Australia to sell.

Sadly two weeks ago there was a collapsing bridge that broke on passing cars.Once a student crossed the eight lane highway and got seriously injured  by walking across the eight lane  highway.There were emergency vehicles that came to rescue the people who were injured under the footbridge. They were trying to get the people out from under of the footbridge.
