Time Flies When We Are Having So Much Fun...

After leaving Cleveland we headed to Dayton for our next event and stopped in Mansfield for a moment to check out the Ohio StateReformatory, it was the prison featured in the Shawshank Redemption movie many years ago.

Unfortunately, the tours were not happening at this time so we just peeked over the fence and tried to get some photos, not the best but they will have to do. Even from far away, it was very creepy, almost like the feel we got when we visited Alcatraz. If you plan to visit, be sure to check out the website for the tour times since they do vary a lot.

We also stopped at the National Museum of the US Air Force while we were in Dayton and if you plan to check it out, give yourself a few hours at least. 

They now have 4 buildings of planes and loads of other memorabilia to view and the absolutely best part about it is it is FREE. That’s right no charge but they do take donations and they have a gift shop. We also used a scooter since it is a lot of walking and that too is free…no charge but we only got one and we swapped off of it. That works better for us since we get too cramped sitting the entire time but we need to rest our knees and backs more often than just sitting for a little while so having that scooter helped us immensely. Oh what fun it is getting old, but the alternative is even worse so we will do the best we can with what the Universe is giving us for today.

Eating out every night has its advantages but not all of them are blog worthy, but this week again we did try several different ones and are sharing the blog worthy ones.

Started with a refreshing Sangria drink that was perfectly blended with all the best ingredients...

Then a spicy but well rounded flavor of Buffalo Chicken Dip with Chips...

I had the Mushroom Swiss Burger that was juicy and succulent, and the French Fries were just the way mom use to make for us kids. Really loving the tastes here in the East, reminding me of all the flavors of my childhood...

Jerry had the Garbage Burger and it had everything on it, Bacon, Mushrooms, Cheddar, award-winning Guggisberg Swiss, American & Mozzarella with Guacamole and Marinara and in his opinion all the different flavors complimented each other and was the best tasting burger he has ever had in his life and that is saying a mouthful since he is a burger king...

This week the event was totally successful...not only did we make our goal, we surpassed it by a bunch. Our helpers were fantastic, we had several that stayed with us the entire day but again like last year, there were just not enough of them but because these guys were so experienced they made up for the lack of them. And, even though they put us outside this year it went well because the weather was fantastic, nothing like the all day rain that we had last year.

When we leave Dayton, we will be heading only to Toledo so we will have a few days of downtime on the water. Lake Erie here we come...
