Hi there. I'm Sarah Ann.
I have two feelings about this summer. The first one is that I'm sad because I'm moving. I'm going to have to leave all my friends and go to an unfamiliar town. It's actually next to the town I was born in. The town I was born in was Madison and I'm moving to Middleton. But we moved from Madison to Spain when I was a baby. As you can see, I've always been a traveler.
The other feeling is that I'm really excited. I'm excited because I get to have another BIG summer trip and write to you about it. Two summer trips ago, I went on an even longer summer trip. That one was two months. This one is only five and a half weeks. This one is more adventurous though because I'm not going to sleep in any hotels. I'm sleeping in my pop-camper. Our family has never really camped before so we don't really know what we're doing. And it's kind of hard to pull that camper all around behind your car. Especially when you have to back up. But now my mom is really good at it. She can do it in one try. But my dad can't.
We've gone on one trip in the pop-up camper before. It was to Cape Cod. On the way home, a crazy man started signaling at us because our tires were smoking. We had no clue about the tires. If we hadn't pulled over right then, our pop-up camper would've caught on fire. And before you know it, our car would've caught on fire too.
So anyway, about the trip - there are some things that are going to be like the other trips. First of all, we're going to take lots of photos. We'll make sure that we put plenty on this blog. The second thing is that something is going to go wrong. It always does. The third thing is that it's going to be fun and adventurous and we'll learn a lot.
I'm excited about everything on the trip especially going to Four Corners, seeing Charlie Dog (my Aunt Laura's dog - that's a joke that I'm most excited about that - but I do like her dog), seeing my cousins and lots of other family, hiking the Narrows (it's a famous hike at Zion National Park), and going to Hershey, PA to see them make chocolate.
As you can see, this is going to be brilliant adventure. So make sure you check this blog EVERY DAY. You never know what might happen with four kids and one GIAGANTIC adventure.
