Santa Barbara Day!!
I took my girls and two friends to Santa Barbara yesterday. I've been feeling cabin fever lately, so I gathered up my girls, packed snacks, and off we went! We went straight to my favorite restaurant Mexican Fresh! Right next door there is a pizza place my kids have been going to for a long time. John and I moved to Santa Barbara in 2000. Those were some of the best years of our lives. We had no money, lived in a 800 square foot sugar shack! Sage was only a year when we moved there. I went to school in the night, John watched Lil John and Sage after work. We lived a couple blocks from State street, and a few away from the beach. We walked/ran every where, the parks in Santa Barbara are some of the most amazing, the kids had a blast. I would take them to story time at the library, then lunch at the zoo or a cool park. We had no cable, just lived huge!! I miss those days, and wish Sadie and Chloe could grow up like that as well! Every time I visit, I check the housing market out! I probably would move back in a second. It's not so easy to pick up and go any more since we all have made life long friends here.
At the SB zoo there's a hill all the kids slide down on cardboard
Onto to my favorite park we have always called it the castle park! I don't know the true name, but it's so fun for the kids.
