I went to Disneyworld when I was 6 and I wrote a diary all about it. I am certain that I remember that holiday more vividly thanks to writing it down and re-reading my account over the years. Therefore, when we were putting together this holiday, I decided that the boy would write a diary to help him remember this one. It took some cajoling but he did eventually get into the idea. It's interesting to see what he has cherry picked as the most interesting points of each day. The sentences themselves are unedited, including spelling and grammar, but I have taking the liberty of putting them all in chronological order as things got a bit "stream of consciousness" after we went to Disney and Mickey's pals kept popping up in random places throughout the diary. So here it is a 6 year old's view of the holiday of a lifetime:
On Thursday we woke up very early to get on a taxi to go to the airport to get on a plane to go to L.A....
On Friday we went to the beach and we found lots of poor wild-life hiding from the gulls and I made a new friend Marly.
On Saturday we took Max (Emma's dog) for a run in the school fields. On the way back Max pooed.
On Sunday we saw Sylvie and Eddie and I showed them angry birds free fall and bad piggies.
On Monday we went to the Natural History Museum and on the way in we saw a whale skeleton. We also saw some animals, a triceratops skeleton. As well as that we saw a plesiosaur skeleton. We also saw a T-Rex skeleton. That's not all, we also saw a 'real' space shuttle! Wow! We also saw a diver in a sea tank. After we has enormous ice creams! Then we went to the gift shop.
On Tuesday we went to the beach and I had a lot of fun in the sea!
On Wednesday we went to Disney-land and we saw a parade and went to an awesome Buzz Lightyear game. We also did an awesome Star Wars "ride". On it Darth Vader threw us around and in the middle of it droids attacked! After we stayed in a hotel.
On Thursday we went back to Disney-land. We had to line up for a very long time to see Captain America and Spider-man. After seeing these two superheroes we spoke to Crush the Turtle from Finding Nemo!
On Friday we came back to Emma's house.
On Saturday we went to the cinema and saw Zootopia.
On Sunday we drove for five hours to get to Yosemite.
On Monday we went on a trail at Yosemite. We saw some amazing water-falls! I spotted a Great California Redwood.
On Tuesday we drove to San Francisco and stayed in a hotel which used to be a fire station.
On Wednesday we had an explore around San Francisco. We saw some amazing things. We saw an enormous tower and we saw Alcatraz through some binoculars. Then we went to the park and saw some wild-life! Then, after a lot of nagging, we went to the playground and can you guess what the floor was? SAND!
On Thursday we took a boat to Alcatraz!! Alcatraz is a very famous jail. We sadly went to the airport to get back to England. I brout "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid".
