If I told you that it all went perfectly to plan and was a wonderful and romantic date, I'd be lying....but we loved it anyway...here is what actually went down on the day....
First off, my best friend and Maid of Honour had stayed over the night before and we decided to let her crash the date....she is one of our closest friends and we knew she would add some entertainment for the day....We all piled in the car ready for the day and realised that we need fuel...so the plane trip had an unexpected stop at Sydney....It was at Sydney (the petrol station) that I realised I had completely forgotten to pack a picnic, so I raced to the shops next door and luckly found some bagel chips with the brand name of New York Style, grabbed some Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Grape Juice (Wine). We piled in the car again and we were off....A little while down the road, there were some roadwork's and the road to the train station was completely closed, so after another long delay we finally got to the train/subway station.

After the train ride/subway ride, we arrived at Roma Street Parkland's.
The beautiful Roma Street Parklands

Roma Street Parkland's is such a great place to spend the day whether your with friends, your partner or your whole family...I love that place...We found a nice seat next to the river that runs through the parkland's and set up our little picnic..

The grape juice (our wine hehe)
A new friend (above) showed up when we accidentally dropped one of the bagel chips...he ran for it, and then proceeded to eye us waiting for more...my friend and I put our feet up on the seat because we were a little scared of it...after a few minutes of staring at us the real fun began....it jumped on robs leg and all at the same time we jumped and stood on the seat....when we jumped up to stand on the seat some more of the bagel chips dropped on the ground and around 10 of this guys friends joined us in a matter of seconds! One big one jumped from out the river. We jumped off the seat and ran for our lives!!!! Eventually we found a better seat far far away from any lizards and finished out picnic...So much excitement!!!
It was such a hot day, that by the time we had walked over to Queen Street Mall (central park zoo), we were hot and sweaty..We found a seat in front of a store that had air conditioning blowing out the front and people watched for a little bit...We made up a game which we called tourist, shopping or lunch break. If you can guess from the name we were guessing if people were tourists, just shopping or on their lunch break....
After a while we decided to head home....it was so hot and we really didn't feel like eating a hot pizza so we skipped New York Slice. When we got home, we were so tired from the exciting and full on day that we pretty much just called it a day and decided to take a miss on The Phantom of the Opera as well....
The tickets I made for The Phantom of the Opera
Although it didn't go to plan, we had a great day and made memories that we will remember and cherish for a long time...cant wait to make some more!!!!
