NC - State Fairgrounds Campground

We went to Raleigh to visit Kevin's sister and brother in law and to run the Rock and Roll Half Marathon.  We really wanted to stay somewhere closer in town than out along I-95, so I started searching and found that the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh has campsites - $25 a night for full hook-ups and close to everything - perfect!

We picked the end row, near a big grassy area which was perfect for throwing a ball around for the puppies.  We also saw a family flying kites there :)

Theo had a fun overnight with Aunt Kathryn, Uncle Pee Wee, and Penny...and loved the recliners in the man cave (ahem, it is a woman cave too!)

Kevin and I had a really good race - not the fastest for either one of us since the rolling hills were relentless, but it was a beautiful course and a great way to see Raleigh.  Lots of great crowd support and fun creative signs along the course!

Alas, we had to tag team the rest of our visit since Theo came down with a bug with a fever, chills, aches, and a sore throat :(  Poor peanut.  This is how he spent the good part of Sunday afternoon and Monday:

At least we were in our own comfy camper and not stuck being sick in an unfamiliar hotel room.  

Kathryn and I took the dogs for a nice walk at the art museum that is close to the fairgrounds - great outdoor trail with large works and it links to the greenway system.  Dogs allowed, yay!  We will definitely put this on our list for next time when we can all go together and spend more time!

Theo did rest enough to rally for a final hurrah dinner:
