Arkansas- Bentonville

On our way home from Eureka Springs, we went through Bentonville to get on the interstate.
In Bentonville, AR is where the Wal-Mart Distribution Center is and it is also the home
of the very first Wal-Mart. Pictured above is Sam Walton's "Walton's 5-10" Store which
is now the visitor center and is filled with history of the Walton's and about WalMart. It was really interesting and a cool place to stop!

Did you know Sam Walton's dog was "Ol'Roy"? Thus where Ol'Roy Dog Food began...

Jon's nephew Trenton plays in the fountain while Angela holds him from falling in.

He looks a lot like his Uncle Jon when Jon was that age...

Ellen & Jerry watch us at the fountain.
