This story is about the summer vacation of a “wimpy kid” Greg Heffley.

 In this summer vacation, Greg had a birthday party. His mother had given him a “Ladybug” cell phone which only allow him to call home and 911. Besides that, his cake was eaten by dog.

Below are the parts that I feel interesting:-

I’ve learned that photo albums aren’t an accurate record of what happened in your life, anyway. Last year, when we were at the beach, Mom bought a bunch of fancy seashells at a gift shop, and later on I saw her bury them in the sand for Manny to “discover”. 


 I finally got Mom to press the right button to take a picture, but, when she did, the camera was pointing the wrong way and she took a picture of herself. See, this is why I always say that technology is wasted on grown-ups. 


 We got some ice-cream, but Mrs Jefferson only ordered one cone for the four of us to share.
