For July, I'm going to shift gears a little from snow sports to traveling, as my family embarks upon our Great Western Adventure. If my life were a sitcom (as it seems to be many days), its name would be "Double the Adventure." The cast includes 18-year-old Tom, a kind, gentle soul who longs only to spin and be left alone, his twin James, who plays instruments and quotes Dr. Seuss perfectly (and frequently), their younger brother Daniel, a talented boy scout who will be making his debut as a ski instructor this winter, French "amie magnifique" Charlotte, our au pair for a year who has voluntarily vacationed with us since (!), and my beloved brother Bill, our fabulous host in California. We're hoping to see various guest stars during our trip as well. Who needs a vacation when you can have an adventure?! At least that's what I'm telling myself...
I like this message, but do wish they spelled it's properly!
The tentative agenda...
July 6 & 7: Las Vegas (Game of Thrones Hotel aka Excalibur)
July 8 & 9: Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, other recommendations if we can squeeze them in
July 10 & 11: Grand Canyon
July 12: La Mirage in Palm Springs
July 13 - 17: Bill's house in Los Angeles (party on the 17th - all in the area are invited!)
July 18 - 19: Yosemite
July 20 - 22: San Francisco (including Dan's birthday on the 21st! Last year, Paris, this year San Francisco - this kid gets around!)
July 22: midnight flight to Philadelphia
