Kitty Hawk

Having lived close to Dayton, Ohio, we're definitely up on our Wright Brothers history and had to visit Kitty Hawk and the Wright Brothers National Memorial, where they made their first flights. Of course it started in Dayton, so we still proudly claim the Birthplace of Aviation! But the magic happened here in Kitty Hawk and it was fun to learn about it and run down the same runway where the first flights happened.
They did the Junior Ranger program and as usual, got a little extra attention from the friendly rangers there. The plane here in Kitty Hawk isn't the original. Guess where that is? The Smithsonian, where we're headed soon!
