Happy Belated 4th!

Jeff, Barley and I traveled down to Santa Barbara for the 4th of July weekend and our last trip before BBD's arrival. We enjoyed the gorgeous weather and time with friends and family. My parents recently bought a condo in Summerland (about 15 mins south of SB) and had lots of work done on the deck and exterior. Luckily the work had just finished the week before so we were able to spend some time down there with the family.

You just can't beat these views!

It was so nice to relax from all the stress of work and daily life. I think the ocean view and vino also helped!

Barley loves going to Summerland where he spends his days sunning himself on the deck.

We spent one night at the condo and then headed back to SB to spend some time with Jeff's parents who had just returned from a trip to Peru. We had a great time time making them dinner at their house and catching up on all the adventures they had on their trip! We had a chance to visit Grandad and Granny at each of their respective residences. It was so nice to see how much Granny is enjoying her new residence where she seems to be flourishing and making new friends!

For the 4th we celebrated with the 51st annual Parejo Drive Block Party that takes place in the middle of the street at my parents house. This was always a favorite tradition of mine growing up and I'm excited to bring our little one next year! The kids had a great time riding bikes in the middle of the street and it was nice to catch up with all of the neighbors. Jeff also had a chance to spend some time with his nephews Sequoia and Kai and joined them at Stow House for some 4th festivities.

Unfortunately I forgot to take any pictures until the end of the night. So here is Kendall wishing you all had a wonderful 4th of July!
