We spent a really enjoyable family weekend in Santa Barbara hanging out with friends, visiting the zoo, and getting lots of beach time in. We house swapped again and this has been the most fun I have had yet doing the whole house swap thing. We stayed right on State Street so we were close to everything. We swapped with a really sweet retired couple and their house was just perfect. I was telling Tim that this was probably the first enjoyable vacation I had been on with Mia. She is finally getting to the age where we can do a little bit more with her in the civilized world. Then I realized that next month we would be back to square one with new baby. This was our last travel weekend as I am due in less than 4 weeks.
