Don’t wake me up…
As you might have already guessed if you follow me on Instagram, we’re in California! Ryan’s cousin is getting married this Saturday in Santa Barbara, and we decided to come for a full week to make a family vacation out of it.
I had driven through Santa Barbara on a girls’ road trip many years back– we spent the night in a very nice Best Western, but that was about the extent of it. It’s been a really fun place to explore– so cute and easy to get around!
We flew into LAX after a 4:30 wake up call, and then drove to Santa Barbara in our rental car. It was a long day:
…but totally worth it to be on the beach by 4:30:
Then we hit up the zoo!
We picked up lunch from a cafe and headed home for naps, because Lila was WIPEd out at that point.
After naps, we headed out again, this time to Santa Barbara’s famous carousel:
I’m blogging and taking pictures from my phone– in the interest of carrying on, I didn’t bring my laptop or “real” camera. But you know– I kind of like this!
Waiting for Lila and Ryan to wake up…not sure what awaits us today!
