Happy Independence Day!
Rach and I have hit Santa Barbara and are having a great time. We came up from LA on the PCH (see pictures below). The weather was perfect and the roads were pretty open.
Once we arrived in Santa Barbara we checked into our hotel and went to lunch at Rose Cafe, a fun local mexican place. The food was excellent. Probably some of the best mexican I ever had. Rach will tell you more with the videos below. After lunch we walked around the town and down to the beach until the evening.

The next day Rach and I had some breakfast, worked out, cleaned up, and then went out to walk on State St. and grab some lunch. We finally found a fun place that served Paninis.

After lunch, Rach and I headed up the mountain to the Botanical Garden. It was absolutely beautiful and we had such a great time. We took many pictures, and had many great laughs!
After the Garden, we headed to the Mission. It was so beautiful and much larger than I expected. The history of the mission was quite interesting, and the large church was actually rebuilt after an earthquake. Here are many pictures that we took at the mission.
After the Mission, Rachel and I headed to dinner at Arnoldi’s for some italian, and then we went for some doughnuts for dessert.
