Memorial Day in Ohio... a photo essay

Where are we headed to again?




Breakfast is the most important meal of the day... the Bacon, Egg & Cheese Bagel is like crack to me...






We live just a few miles from the National Museum of the United States Air Force. The boy LOVES this place, and bonus - admission is free. Unfortunately, there aren't really any pictures of the boy from today, because he won't stand still long enough right now for you to actually take his picture. It really is an extensive and impressive museum. If you're ever in Ohio and close to Dayton, you should take the time to see it.


Don't ask me what the names of any of these planes are. With a 3-year old in tow, there's no time to stop and write down the information.




The museum also includes part of a traveling exhibit on the Holocaust...



And, of course, you can't take a trip to the Air Force Museum without seeing the rockets...



On the opposite end of town is a working historical farm from the 1800's. Some of the buildings are from the original farm, and some are reconstructed.




Now we're home. I'm about to hop on the elliptical (joy, joy), then we're having pizza. Ahh... the excitement of it all...

Great pics! If you make it back to the AF Museum on a non-holiday weekday before the next year or so, make sure you stop in to see Mom. She still works in the Programs office, and would love to see you guys.

Where is the historical farm at? I didn't know there was on in that area.

The Holocaust exhibit reminded me to tell you that I visited Dachau when I was in Europe over spring break. Very sobering experience.

I remember the museum... there was one plane named the "Strawberry Bitch" is it still on display??

Nice holiday out with the family!
