Saturday 14th July 8am

Mum : tell me about the trip on the airplane

We coloured, we ate but I didn’t eat, we drinked, made friends and played with them, watched some TV, talked to the Captain cause Captains take turns – he came for a drink when I was in the kitchen and I talked to him.

Mum : Did it seem like a long time?

Lara : Yes

Dad : What was the best bit?

Lara : Looking out the window and seeing the sea with clouds in it – and I saw an island and I saw a whale(!!)

Mum : What do you remember about the first day in Rio – the day before yesterday?

Lara: We went to the beach and we made castles and then I wrote my name in the sand with my stick, we walked around the town and had lunch and I had chips and then I got a chocolate cone ice cream. It was lovely but I gave it to Daddy.

Mum : can you remember what happened in the evening?

Lara : you and me got sleepy and fell asleep and Daddy and Benny and Zoe went out for dinner and when they came back we were still asleep and we stayed asleep on the sofa all night!

Mum : tell me about yesterday?

Lara : we went walking it was boring!

Ben and Zoe : Lara, you climbed up a tree and Ben had to help you out of it and we met some girls and talked to them and we went in some playgrounds and then you ran off and Daddy and our friend Alviro had to chase you. And we saw a helicopter flying off.

Lara : We saw lots of really tall trees and we had a running race

Mum : What about when we got home?

We’d walked almost 5 miles!?

Lara : We were in the swimming pool and I went down the slide and that’s it!

Mum : What happened in the evening?

Lara : I fell asleep and I missed dinner again and woke up early this morning very hungry and I’m going to have an egg for breakfast! (singing and dancing) I want an eggy now ow ow!
