Saturday 5th April 2008

We picked up Katie at 8.30am, went to IHOP for breakfast and then headed towards Ohio. We stopped briefly on the way for coffee, and then for lunch and finally arrived at Wapakoneta (Neil Armstrong's birthplace) at around 2.30pm.

We spent a couple of hours looking at the exhibits there and learning a bit more about the trips to the moon. It seems that if you want to be an astronaut you stand a much better chance if you have been born in Ohio! More astronauts seem to have come from Ohio than any other state.

We left the museum at 5pm and travelled for about an hour to Findlay and to our hotel. This evening we ate at 'Olive Garden' which is an Italian restaurant recommended to us by Katie. It is good having her with us as she knows what is good and what should be avoided. Tomorrow we will be in Detroit, all being well!

Hi Bren! Welcome to Ohio. I live near Cleveland, it sounds as though you are a bit west of me. I'm enjoying your blog. I see a pattern of IHOP and Outback Steakhouse forming! Thanks for sharing this with us. [Sue in OH, from DisneyScrappers]
