On the drive there, Greg notices the kids from the motel in a purple van, and nicknames them "the Beardos" after their father's big beard. At the fair, Greg's little brother, Manny, wins a living baby pig from a contest. Although Greg and his parents don't want to keep the pig, Manny and the people at the fairgrounds do. The pig ends up staying in the back of the van with Greg.
The family stays at a better hotel the next night. However, the pig raids the minibar, which ends up costing a lot of money. Later, Greg's dad has to take a business call during the drive, and needs everyone to be silent.
After a chain of events involving Rodrick loudly chewing gum, the pig biting Greg's finger, and a Spanish CD playing at max volume, the call does not go very well. Greg's parents then decide to donate the pig to a petting zoo, which upsets Manny.
After Greg is taken to a veterinarian for treatment for the pig bite, the family stops at another hotel. In the morning, Greg's mom decides to take the family to the beach for the day.
As Rodrick drives the minivan on the bridge, Greg sees a seagull and feeds it a cheese curl from the van. Greg's mom warns him that seagulls are aggressive, and he shouldn't feed them. Then, the seagull lands on the van and squawks at Greg.
He throws another cheese curl at it in an attempt to get it to fly away, but the seagull then goes in the van. It takes Greg's bag of cheese curls and flies away, but hit the van roof, and the cheese curls fall back into the van. During this panic, Rodrick accidentally presses the gas pedal, and ends up hitting the car in front of them.
The people in the car are understanding, but Greg's family's minivan will take four to five hours to fix. They decide to go to a nearby water park to kill some time. Greg's parents put their wallets and cell phones in a locker. They are able to find a beach chair, but it has a broken strap.
After Greg is pranked by Rodrick and has a misunderstanding with people at a raft ride, he goes back to the chair, but finds that it's not there anymore.
It turns out that the Beardos took it. Greg decides to not get in any more trouble with them, and goes back to his family at the snack bar. As they prepare to leave, they realize that they have lost the key to their locker.
After a failed search, Greg remembers the locker number, and asks an employee to unlock it, but it turns out that he remembered it wrong. Greg tells his family about the Beardos and tries searching back at the their beach chair, but he notices that the Beardos are already driving away.
Also, his personality is just like any other teenagers, who wants to spend summer break on activities that interests them the most. I enjoyed the parts where their family had to deal with the pig that Manny got, it was exceedingly entertaining and I actually laughed out for a few parts of it.
November 10, Could a Heffley family vacation ever be anything but a series of escalating tribulations that would test Job's resolve? In this ninth Diary of a Wimpy Kid outing, Kinney detours from the more episodic nature of the earlier books to trace the family's doomed-from-the-start road trip, spurred by Greg's mother's subscription to Family Frolic "There must be something wrong with our family," Greg muses, "because we can never measure up to the ones in the magazine".
Kinney maintains his knack for getting the details of family life just right naturally, the only available lounge chair at a wildly overcrowded waterpark is the one with several broken straps.
But between the inadvertent acquisition of a pet pig, an attack by a flock of seagulls, Greg getting medical attention at the vet, and baby brother Manny managing to knock the parked family car into drive, there's more out-and-out absurdity in this installment than in previous books. Readers won't care, though, and their own family vacations will look downright blissful by comparison.
You'd think that if anyone would know better, it would be Greg Heffley's mother. But no. When she reads an article in Family Frolic magazine about wholesome family road trips, she insists on taking one right now.
What ensues is the kind of totally over-the-top mayhem that the Wimpy Kid's fans have come to expect-and more. The family packs too much stuff to fit into the car, so they decide to tow Dad's utterly unseaworthy boat as extra cargo space.
Mom insists on educational enrichment learn-to-speak-Spanish CDs, lame-o car games , "real food" brown-bag "Mommy Meals" instead of fast food and "authentic" fun a country fair with no rides but a guess-the-pig's-weight contest in which the prize is the pig; baby Manny wins. They spend the night in the absolute quintessence of a cruddy motel. Two slapstick driving sequences are both Hollywood-ready and extremely funny, especially in Kinney's accompanying cartoons; Greg's free-associative riff on humorless do-gooders who seek to censor such potty-humor classics as a wink-and-a-nod-disguised Captain Underpants will find an appreciative audience.
By taking the Heffleys on the road, Kinney both gives himself an almost universally familiar experience to lampoon and places Greg in the rather unusual position of being almost entirely justified in his misanthropy, which is downright refreshing.
