Matthew’s Road Trip – Day 10

We had planned to sleep until about 9:00am on Saturday morning, but it wasn’t to be with Matthew.  Even though he was up until 10:00pm on Friday night, he was still up by 7:00am!

We got up and put cartoons on the TV for him and tried to go back to sleep, but it did not happen.

We called Deanne, and she and Mike came out about 10:00am.  They took Matthew to the local Home Depot store for a kid’s workshop.  Matthew, with some help from Uncle Mike made a small wagon.  He was also given a work apron, recognition pin and a certificate.  Here are some pics…….Wagon at Home Depot 009

Patsy and I met them at The Purple Cow, a Dairy Queen type place, in West Little Rock for lunch.  While we waited on our burgers, Matthew did some coloring::

Matthew went home with Deanne and Mike to paint his wagon, while Patsy and I went to do some shopping.  We then went and picked him up, and drove back to the campground just before sunset so that Matthew could get in some playground time:

Later in the evening, we drove around Little Rock to see some of the Christmas lighting.  Part of it was a drive-through park in North Little Rock.  Here are some of the pictures that Mike captured……

Tomorrow, we head back to Victoria.  I think Matthew is starting to miss his sister, and his Mom & Dad.  I think they will also be glad to see him!!
