My mother’s friend invited all her university friends to camp at her barn. It was a countryside type of landscape near Perth. We left at around 3:00 pm and got there at 4:00. There was a guy who had a volleyball so my brother made me and my sister play, and soon my dad also joined. At the end my arms and hands were red, but it didn’t really Then we set up our tent outside and then at 5:00 we started eating. There were people there that served homemade mashed potatoes, jiaozi, turkey, applesauce, and bread.
Then there was a skit thing where they introduced their family in their skit which was very funny. They had another skit where they had this landlord who took every single penny that the people who rented his houses had, but then he was robbed and he didn’t have a single penny. The people to rented his houses later earned more money, and gave some to him, and from then on they lived happy and rich. The last skit was a girl named Dana, and she told a story about her life how at one point she got depressed and started using drugs, but then she stopped later because she knew it was the wrong thing. It was a very depressing skit.
Then after there were skit kits that we could use and perform and written inside was a place, (e.g Graveyard) an object, (e.g Gun) and a problem you have to solve (e.g Zombies). My favourite one was there was a grandma at a family reunion and she was very crazy. She was shaking all the time (that was how they acted it out) and she wasn’t talking properly. One of the people at the reunion had an yellow umbrella and she put it over the grandma’s head, then she stopped. After the lady took it off, and the grandma continued, so they stuck her hands onto the umbrella and so the grandma changed back to normal. After the skit kits they had a huge campfire, where the children did dangerous things like put huge branches with leaves and take them out. Eventually the adults did stop them. We also found sticks and they gave us marshmallows to roast. Then we went to sleep.
The night was very very hard to sleep through, in fact I didn’t sleep a wink. The wind was rough and the rain annoyed all of us. Eventually I did fall asleep, and luckily I got enough.
In the morning we had toast with butter, scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, bacon, and juice.
