Sophia

Have you thought about what you might like to do on vacation?

I have no idea. Do you have any ideas?

If the weather stays nice, I’d like to go to the beach.

That would be a good choice. The weather has been great for the beach!

Why don’t you come with me?

Hey, that would be perfect! What time are you leaving?

I think that Saturday morning around 8:00 would work out well.

Santa Barbara has a music festival on the beach that day. We would have enough time to drop in and see it.

Yes, I knew the festival would be there and was looking forward to going to it.

I am really looking forward to Saturday. Thank you for letting me go with you.
