a special visit to arkansas

Matt's grandmother has been in and out of the hospital for the past few months.  In the last few weeks, her health has really gone down so they moved her to a hospice home. We got a call Thursday night that she was not doing well at all, so Matt left work around 2pm and we were out the door headed to Arkansas by 3:30pm.  Pearson did well for most of the drive until it got close to bed time.  He screamed for about 45 minutes until he finally fell asleep.  We got to Arkansas around 9pm and enjoyed spending time with Mema and introducing her to our sweet boy for the first time!!  We got to spend some more time with her and Matt's entire family on Friday morning before we had to head back home.  We are so thankful for the time that we got to spend with her.  

Matt and Mema talking sports with each other before we headed home.  I know exactly where Matt gets his competitive nature and love for sports!!

Pearson was worn out from all the traveling and staying up late so we couldn't get him to wake up for a picture, but we are so glad that we have a picture of him with his great grandmother to show him someday.
