Vacation like days

Sometimes I forget people actually come to Santa Barbara for a vacation. It's a good reminder when I am thinking of places we should be venturing off to for a summer break. I mean, really...
Why am I trying to escape this?
Sand digging fun with cousin Eric.
A little massage from some cuties.

I am pretty sure my kids will never outgrown the carousel.
 My fave pic
 Kalista is such the goof!
Not a bad place to call home, huh?

Happy in Utah

Summer vacation has been relaxing and a little busy. A good kind of busy though. We spent a few days up in Park City, Utah over the 4th. This was our second time back and it was a nice carefree, no work vacation. Just the way I like it!

Hard to believe this was close to 10:00 PM!

 Fitting in with the locals for the parade.
Patiently waiting for the works.
This was like 8:30 PM!
But I am going to say...
By far the most beautiful skyline of fireworks I had ever seen!

 We spent a day at Utah Olympic Park. So much fun and lots to do and see.
Little chair lift ride to the alpine sled ride:
This is also where training happens
during the summer months:
Can you say, "CRAZY?!"

Some ropes course action for Sophia & David.
This was like no joke and the real deal.
There were some tears from kids at the top and it took A LOT 
of coaxing to get them to completion.
Thank goodness Sophia loved it!
 Couldn't get enough of this:
 And yes, a selfie. But with a story:
A lady stopped me and said, "I just wanted to tell you I think you're beautiful." 
I was super embarrassed! She also went on to say, 
"As women I don't think we compliment other women enough." 
And you know what?! She's absolutely right! 
About complimenting other women, that is. :)
I am going to try and pay it forward when I can!

A little World Cup action while the kids were swimming:

One of our favorite things to do...
walk downtown:
 And eat:

Until next time Park City!
