What a surprise!

Last October, Fred and his parents decided to go and stay in the mountains for a week. They wanted to go on long walks there, so they put good walking shoes, maps and all the other things they needed in three big blue rucksacks, which they put on their backs. Then, they caught a bus to go to the station.

They were very excited when their train arrived in the mountain village. It was a cold but sunny day. The grass was very green and the mountains looked beautiful.

That night, they ate in the hotel and went to bed early. The next morning Fred woke up, jumped out of bed and ran to the window. The houses were all white!

'Quick!' he shouted. 'Come and look at the snow!'

Fred's parents were very surprised. 'Snow in October! That's very strange!' they said.

'What are we going to do?' Fred asked.

'Well,' Fred's Dad said. 'Let's get some skis and learn to ski at the ski school here!'

So they did, and Fred loved it. He fell over lots of times in his first lesson but he didn't mind. At the end of the week, he was very good at skiing. His mum and dad were too! It was a great holiday for all of them!
