We slept in late this morning, even Matthew who is usually up by 6:30am, slept until past 8:00am!!
We had breakfast, and then we gave Matthew a United States map puzzle that we gave him to help him understand our travels. He did pretty good putting it together….. it has an outline under the pieces!!
About 10:00am, it was getting pretty warm outside, so we got dressed, and went looking for a local playground for Matthew.
My cousin, Duane King, from Council Bluffs, IA, ordered a Tiffin Phaeton motorhome after seeing my Bus in June, and his build begins tomorrow. I wanted to take pictures of his chassis before the welding began, so I dropped Patsy and Matthew off at a playground, and I went to the factory to get the pictures. Here’s Matthew leading Patsy to the equipment:
The guard told me that she couldn’t let me into the plant because it was closed……. so I asked her if she didn’t need to make a round, and that I would ride in the golf cart with her!! She smiled and agreed!!! I got my pictures!! Here’s a couple of pictures:
After getting my pictures, I returned to the playground, and Matthew was having a good time. The following are mainly for Mom and Dad (and Aubrey!):
Next to the playground, there is a skateboard park, and Matthew brought his scooter with him on the trip, so we went to the skate park:
As much fun that he had, he seemed to have more fun kicking large pine cones:
While in the park, we found a table that makes the monster that his dad, Rick, built in college look kind of puny!!
After playing, we drove around town. We found a restaurant named “Ezzell’s”, Matthew’s mom’s maiden name, and we took pictures of Matthew at the signs:
Matthew was glad to see that there was no resemblance between him and the guy on the sign!!!!
We returned to the campground and we let Matthew run off some more energy!!
Matthew spotted this metal dog with his leg raised and peeing on a fire in someone’s front windshield!!
We will see what tomorrow brings.
