Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

Today was.. a Wednesday, I guess.  It’s only about a week and a half (or so) until we all head for the Grand Canyon.

I learned a little more about our itinerary today.  We’re going to stop in El Paso on the way, because, well, it’s a long way away.  Texas is a big state.  Then we’re going to the campsite on the grand canyon.  That should take a whole day to get to.  Then we’re going to spend a couple of days there.  We’ll hike and, well, do grand canyoney things.  I don’t know what those all are, but hey.  First time for everything.

Then after a couple of days we’ll head back – we’re probably going to catch a few miles of route 66, at least to Amarillo, then head back home from there.  Yuki wants to see some of the Route 66 attractions (it’s really famous in Japan) and it’s not too far out of the way, so why not.

There will be a lot of us, so we’re taking a couple of large cars.  Let’s see… there will be Liz’s family, the three of them, then me and Yuki, then Jack’s family…  that’s nine people  We’ll need either two SUVs or a party van.  Haha!!!

I guess we’ll make it work.  Liz’s parents are pretty smart.  And between everyone, I’m sure they’ll figure it out.

They’re renting a few tents too.  They’re a little…  what’s the word…  well, they’re really overpreparing.  I guess you can’t be too prepared in the wilderness… even if it’s a campsite so the “wilderness” will probably have wi-fi.  Haha!!!

I’ve never been to that area of the country, at least not that I can remember.  I’ve been to LA, but never the actual desert.  I hear it’s really pretty, though.

Anyway, I think it’ll be fun…  and there won’t be a whole lot to do but maybe read and talk and play games.  Which isn’t an awful thing.  I’ll take lots of pictures for all the girls and find some souvenirs too.

Anyway…  gotta go to bed.  That’s still a while away.

Love you all!!! ❤️
