Walk at Crystal Bridges with Hayden - Arkansas

overcast 20 °C

I wanted to see the Walmart museum in Bentonville town centre which happens to be the place where Sam Walton set up his first shop ever... So we decided to head for town and we went to the museum.

This is a great museum with a ton of artefacts about the actual shop, some interactive games (giant google map of the world and you can locate your stores..., comaprison of prices between now and the 60's, replica of the board meeting) and also some great little movies.

I really enjoyed the museum and think it is a great company ... I love retail that is for sure!

Anyway, after the museum Hayden wanted to take his Star Wars person for a walk in my new skates and the wind was strong so Frank and Teo went for a kite....

Hayden and I headed off towards the Crystal Bridges museum which once again has been built by the Waltons... and amazinglarge_DSC02161.jpg architecture that looses itself in the surrounding vegetation and just seems like wood lice... very stunning architecture and design...

Check out Star Wars chariot revisited by Hayden

Memorial Skate Park in Bentonville - Arkansas

sunny 23 °C

Uma had bought Teo and Hayden a new skate board and helmets so we thought we would give it a go and went to the Skate Park in Memorial Park in town...

I brought my new Skorpions quads and both Teo and myself tired them on...
