Into the Cave

Into the cave!
On a sunny morning a little family went on an adventure in a cave.
When the ground was shaking and their little family tried to get out but the rocks fell so they ran to the the left. Then they ran to the right but it was full of rocks so they tried calling for help but they left their phones in their car.
While they were waiting for someone to come and rescue them they started to. Get hungry so they looked in their bags and they had water and sandwiches for lunch. Some of them got bored of waiting so they checked in their if they
bought some toys.

Mum and dad started to get sleepy so they closed their eyes for little bit then. They heard someone digging the rocks out and they saw a little hole on the
side of the cave. When they got out they didn’t know what to say so they invited them for dinner to say thank you when they finished their dinner they walked them out  and they said good bye.

And they never went to the cave again
