Sunday drive!


This last week I got what I have been waiting for since the moment I turned 15. My driving permit! Yes I passed the test we went to the DMV and all is said and done and I have my driving permit! So the second day after getting it my dad allowed me to take a stroll just around the camp ground. I soon learned that driving a 10,000 pound dually is nothing like the only other vehicle I have ever driven which was a geo metro. Big difference between the two. So today my dad returned the U-haul we rented for moving some stuff in our storage unit. After which he diced I could drive home. It was really fun and I think I did ok. The biggest thing was keeping the truck in one lane and how much you have to turn the wheel to get it to turn. Again nothing like a car. But it was fun and I can't wait to hit the road again!

New roommate!


The Showalters have a new member! Or should i say revived a old member. Today my older brother Aric moved back in with us. He is going to take 6 to 12 months and travel the east coast with us this year. He just moved in today and it's nice to have him back. He is a very funny guy so within a hour of being back we saw he has not lost a bit of his sense of humor! On top of that my aunt and cousin Diana and Lauren flew in today. They are here to do fun things with us including Bush Gardens! I am still having problems missing Zoe and the Evans and other friends at the last campground but we will see them again soon enough! But i'm glad i have some compensation, which of course is my family.
