Holiday Tickets!!!

Jeff and I are flying to the US for five weeks next year!

I'm gonna get to meet Amy.
I'm gonna get to meet Amy.
(Will you think I'm overdoing it if I say it again?)
I'm gonna get to meet Amy.

Suffice to say I am very excited. We have plans to spend the first two weeks of our holiday visiting with Amy's family in Kansas and going on a road trip with them to see some of the sights in the central/south west of the US, such as the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam. Then we will head north to Washington State (among other places), because Jeff wants to attend Sunday services at Mars Hill Church in Seattle. Finally we will drive south down the Pacific Coast Hwy through San Francisco to Los Angeles and visit some amazing Californian national parks.

Woo hoo! I am very very excited and it is still ten months away. I just hope the kids can bear to be with their grandparents on the farm and camping etc for five whole weeks without us.

WHAT!!?? No east coast plans?? :-( You're gonna come all the way here and Amy gets to hog you?
Just kidding with ya! Looks like you have some fun stuff planned. I've been to Arizona a bunch (my brother lives there) but still haven't taken time to see the Grand canyon. We will be living there for 2 months Jan/Feb of 2010, so maybe then. California is beautiful! I loved visiting San Diego (if that one's on your list)!
Fun, fun, fun!

5 weeks?! Wow!!!

If I remember correctly what part of Kansas Amy is in, I'm only about 4 hours away, so maybe I can take a day trip to come visit you too!

You are going to LOVE the Pacific coast.

Wow Sharon! That's fantastic. What a treat. And well deserved after doing the student thing and getting established in your new life's work. I look forward to hearing about the plans as they develop and your excitement as it grows and of course, down the track, all about the trip too!!
