This book is about a family who leaves Virginia for weeks to visit their relatives. After a few miles they arrive at their relatives' house. When they first get there the relatives start to hug and hug. After they hugged, they had a big supper and they went to bed. In the morning they had fun in their backyard. Then finally they went home. You'll have to read the story to find out if the family missed the relatives!

I loved this book because it was funny when the relatives crashed into the house. My favorite part was when the relatives got home because it was the morning and they still went to bed. The story reminded me about the trip that I took to San Diego because it took us a long time to get there.

I highly recommend this cool story because it is funny. You'll laugh when the car crashes into the house. I recommend this book to people who like their family coming to visit.
