Bentley's First Trip

I knew that I didn't want having a kid stop me from traveling and seeing sights (both local and afar).  Last weekend we decided that we would take Bentley on her first trip.  We wanted to head to the coast since it was going to be 100 degrees at home.  We chose Santa Barbara as our destination.

Both Sean and I had never been to Santa Barbara and we were both super impressed with how quaint it was.  We parked downtown and walked the streets, picked a random cafe to eat at, splurged at a candy store, took in the views from the courthouse tower and took a stroll around Shoreline Park.  Bentley was very well behaved (she slept through pretty much all of it) and we talked about how we wanted to come back for a weekend getaway since there was still so much more we wanted to see.

Bentley is getting so good at grasping things!

Ate outside in a very European-feel cafe (inspired us to talk about our next European trip)
We sat outside at this very quaint (and good!) cafe.

One of the many little alleys to explore!

A trip to a beach city is not complete without some salt water taffy.

One of many super cute theaters along State Street.

Of course I had to find the cool history of the area!
Must see for those visiting Santa Barbara!

View from the Courthouse.

Me and my honey!

I loved the details and theme of the courthouse.  I need to take a docent tour next time!

Bentley loved her first trip!
