Raleigh North Carolina

In addition to meeting up with Rebecca's friend from China, our trip to North Carolina included having dinner with my 5th grade boyfriend, his lovely wife and BEAUTIFUL daughter. His wife was a former classmate too so we had lots of fun talking about some of our antics in Physics class and just a good time catching up. Dwight enjoyed telling my children that he was my old boyfriend and that I had broken up with him. Of course I had to add that it took him about 2.3 seconds to ask my best friend out. Now how is that for just plain ol' funny?

Then it was on to Raleigh to visit number 12 on our list of Capitols. I'm a little on the OCD side when it comes to scheduling things so I had us down to visit the Capitol at 11, which their website had listed as a tour time and then had it planned so that we would be at the beach right at check-in time. Well, the website was wrong-ola and we had to wait around until 1 for the capitol building to open and the tour wasn't until 2 so we just did a self tour thing. While killing time waiting for it to open we were able to walk around the downtown area, have a snow cone and visit the North Carolina history museum. I would really like to go back to Raleigh again so we could see more of the area, it looked very pretty!

A boyfriend in 5th grade? You shameless hussy! ;-)

I loved NC. We spent a few days in Greensboro a few years ago. Really pretty there.

Sounds like everyone had a good time reminiscing...

You are so funny..only you would catch up with an old boyfriend with Bryan and the kids in tow. Can YOU seriously get any cuter Carolin? Love it. I also love your mission to visit all the capitols, that's awesome and such a great way for him to learn how our Government works...the good, the bad...the ugly of it. He should talk to Shawn sometime, he works as a Legislative arm of the retirement system and works with all the KY legislators, he would love to talk to him about Government process if he's ever interested. Have a great weekend!
