One day we take a tour of the National Museum of the United States Air Force. What a place! It is huge, and also has an outdoor Memorial Park and lots of stuff to look at. Steve reads slow, so he take a long time to finish, and they have to chase him out the door at closing time! While we were there, we watched a film of Aerial Dogfighting that was filmed at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada. Just like old times.

On another day, we toured the State Capitol building and the Hopewell Culture National Historic Park.
We were able to tour the Westcott House, another Frank LW home that has been renovated. We also looked at the Medical Clinic in Dayton, that he designed! Also toured the Dayton Aviation Historical Park, which included the Wright brothers bike shop. Watched movies (recreations) of them trying to fly in a big field outside of Dayton. Cool!
