NC - North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh

We stayed here last year for our visit to Raleigh and it worked out so well that we returned.  Nice and convenient for visiting Kevin's sister and brother in law and for running the Rock 'n Roll half marathon.

The fairground campground was definitely more full this year and the officer who came to check us in mentioned something about offering annual sites now, so it seems that this spot might be harder and harder to get into.  We got one of two open spots when we arrived on Friday evening, where last year we were one of maybe 10-15 in the whole place.

We definitely used the grassy field for running off steam:

We had great weather the whole time in Raleigh.  Great racing weather!

Theo got to try Cheerwine:

Theo and I got to ride with Aunt Kathryn on her Can Am Spyder:

We went to a cool motorcycle show:

We did a fun tour of the city with an activity called Crazy Dash

Had some good 'ol Southern cooking at Big Ed's

And we hit the NC Museum of Natural Sciences and the NC Museum of History, both free and very nice museums!
