We drove up to Raleigh to check out the North Carolina Museum of History one afternoon. Well, technically we drove up to Raleigh to go to Chipotle for lunch but figured we'd do something fun while we were up there to make the gas usage more worthwhile.

Everyone had a great time and particularly enjoyed the exhibit "Story of North Carolina". It covers life in North Carolina from its earliest settlement through the 1830s. We learned all about the pirates that travelled the North Carolina coast (like Blackbeard!), North Carolina's involvement in the Revolutionary War, and the tobacco farms that North Carolina is known for. We're excited to go back in November when the second part of the exhibit (1830s-present) opens.
