Dear Andrew and Ian,

I am having a wonderful time on my vacation. I wish you were here. I climbed Pikes Peak in Colorado, you would have loved the view! Next, I stopped in Las Vegas. There is so much to do there. What a crazy place! Palm Springs is about 97 degrees right now. I am roasting! I took lots of pictures of the hot springs. I can’t wait to show you. See you in a couple days.

Love,Dad
