Santa Barbara Take 2

After a little planning and google-mapping, we had a list of five places we wanted to hit today before nap time collapsing. Santa Barbara County Courthouse. Alice Keck Park & Kidworld Playground. The Santa Barbara Natural History Museum. Santa Barbara Chicken Ranch. And….Mission Santa Barbara. And we did it! Amazing views, gorgeous architecture, great spots for kids and yummy food—–despite lots of five year old whining and moaning. I got just a **LITTLE** giddy and geeky over the 4th Grade History, the phenomenal architecture and the butterflies.

And a few out-takes….we had a great night with our friend Kim last night. Alex took this picture, but I love it nonetheless. Especially Drew’s enamored look at Kim.

And a cute one of Drew in his element.

…..and finally, fun mailboxes on the way up to the Natural History Museum.
