it's summer vacation, the weather’s great, and all the kids are having fun outside. So where’s Greg Heffley? Inside his house, playing video games with the shades drawn.

Greg, a self-confessed “indoor person,” is living out his ultimate summer fantasy: no responsibilities and no rules. But Greg’s mom has a different vision for an ideal summer . . . one packed with outdoor activities and “family togetherness.”

Whose vision will win out? Or will a new addition to the Heffley family change everything

when its summer and Greg Heffley is in his house playing games and there are like no rules to him.But then family has like a togetherness.And Greg went to a vocation with Rowley and his family.

Greg's family has cut back on vacations and day trips to save money, so his summer fun is limited. Summer vacation finds the main character, Greg, happy to be inside playing video games. His mother has other ideas, and starts a book club. Greg also gets to go to the country club with his best friend Rowley -- until they run up a bill of $83 for smoothies that Greg thought were free. Greg gets a job to pay the money back, and his scheme to mow lawns goes about as well as his other plans often do. So his birthday money will have to pay the bill instead of buy him the dog he wants, or so he thinks.

“If there's one thing I learned from Rodrick, it's to set people's expectations real low so you end up surprising them by practically doing nothing at all.”

Me and Dad might not agree on everything, but at least we agree on the important stuff.

"I've always been more of an indoor person.
The way I like to spend my summer vacation is in front of the TV, playing video games..."

from Diary of a Wimpy Kid -- Dog Days

"Then I did a bunch of push-ups and sit-ups to really make my muscles pop." (146)
