Dear John I would like to thank you for the wonderful holiday I had with your family. The excursion was really wonderful. I enjoyed every activity which we have done on the beach in Miami like beach volleyball, swimming in the water etc.
, after returning from Miami to Dallas I got busy with office work and didn't have any time to respond to you by email , letter or call. I was thrilled to receive the photographs of the holidays you sent to me . Every time I see them, memories of holidays flashed in my mind.
, I would like to invite you on holiday
along with
your family to Dallas. there are lots of scenic spots where we can go on excursions. In summer there are lots of spots to view and spend time near nature. Looking forward to a quick reply from you. Cheers, Brad Hogg
