Washington DC 2004
In July 2004, we vacationed in our nation's capital for a little over a week. (Cathy was seven months pregnant with William during this trip, so is showing in the pictures of her!)

Udvar-Hazy Center: National Air and Space MuseumIt's hard to get a feel for just how big this museum is via pictures, but this one gives you an idea. This picture was taken from the center of the museum looking toward the commercial section. The hangar extended the same distance the other direction (behind the camera), and there is a third wing/hangar to the right of the camera housing the Space Hangar.

CDC 3800The Control Data Corp. 3800 was a 1960's-era computer which Cathy's dad was on the development team for. We were looking for this computer in the American History museum with the computers earlier in this page, but were surprised to find it at the Udvar-Hazy center. It was used for satellite tracking by the Air Force.
