We had our second family get away - to Santa Barbara. We saw Aunt Katlyn and Uncle Nick, went to the Zoo, the Boathouse and Hendry's Beach (where we had amazing food and ran all over the beach before and during/after sunset), the Beachside Cafe - where we ran on the beach again and walked down the wharf/pier with Katlyn, and we finished off the weekend with a quick stop at the Sea Center/Aquarium.
OK - shall I mention two of my favorite things - feeding the giraffe lettuce and sliding down the "hill" in the children's play area in the Zoo with Garrett on pieces of cardboard boxes. So fun! Love how having kids lets you be a kid again.
So fun! We'll have to head back around December for the Butterfly Preserve and the tide pools. So much to do, so little time!
BTW - Garrett's favorite part was the roll away bed and the breakfast room at the hotel. The simple pleasures . . .
