"Are we really here?"

"Lizzy, can you believe it?" Liza said, squeezing her sister's hand. "We're really here! In London!" Liza plopped down on the bed at the Inn they were staying at. Lizzy giggled and sat on the edge of the bed, beside Liza.
"I know. When I was little I used to dream of walking the streets of London, and now I'm here," Lizzy said, closing a book she had brought along.
Liza stood from the bed and made her way over to her luggage, sitting in the wardrobe. She held up a pretty, light pink dress with little flowers sewn onto the hem. "What do you think, Lizzy? Is this a good dress for our first day in London?"
Lizzy giggled and shook her head enthusiastically. "Oh, Liza, it's absolutely perfect! And, what do you think about this one?" Lizzy asked her sister, holding up a light brown and black, checkered dress that looked comfortably perfect for a day full of walking.
"Lizzy, it is superb!" The girls spun around in circles, laughing and having a grand time, until they heard a knock on the door. "Come in," Liza said, straightening up her hair.
Bekah peeked in the door. "Am I interrupting anything?"
Lizzy waved her cousin to come on in, "Oh no, we were just picking out our outfits for the day. Bekah, what do you plan on wearing?"
She smiled and fluffed her blue, cotton dress. "I plan on wearing this. Do you like it?"
Liza and Lizzy exchanged glances. "It's perfect," Lizzy said, walking up to her cousin, and linking arms with her. Liza did the same. "What shall we do on our first day out?"
Bekah giggled. "Maybe we should go shopping."
"Or, maybe we could take a long walk in the beautiful, crisp weather," Liza said, spinning the girls around. The all giggled.
Lizzy gave a chuckle. "Shopping sounds good. So does taking a walk. Perhaps we'll do both!" It was decided.
