I reciently celebrated my (ahem) 30th birthday, and in honor of the occasion we decided to get out of Dodge for the weekend. And to illustrate that I am totally ok with my geeky-ness and that I trust that you all will love me in spite of it, I will actually share with you what we did.

We went down to Dayton to the National Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson AFB. The museum is huge, I mean really huge. Three giant hangers (something like 200,000 square feet each) and over 300 aircraft on display, plus lots of related artifacts. We spent almost 5 hours there and while we saw pretty much everything, we didn’t stop to read all the signs/exhibits, etc. I think it could be a couple day project to get through it all.

Sunday we drove over to the Ohio Renaissance Festival, which was fun, but we didn’t stay as long as we thought we might. Ren fairs are always interesting, and full of interesting characters.
Ike rudely interrupted our plans, so we left early. Whoever heard of a tropical storm in Ohio? Craziness.
Crazy weather notwithstanding, it was so nice to get out of town!

I can't believe it took me this long to catch up on your blog. I love the Air Museum at Wright Patt. I am such an aviation nerd since working for the Navy and every time I travel to Dayton I drag my little cousin there. Always a good time.

A Renn Faire on the other hand-I've prayed for rain every year I've signed up with my friends to go. A little too much of the "weird people" variety.
