Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens

One of our favorite places in Santa Barbara is the Botanical Gardens. Since we were going to be in the area around Aaron's birthday, we thought it would be a great place to go as part of his birthday festivities. We had an awesome time walking around and exploring with the kids. Talia especially loved it and really enjoyed playing in the leaves, collecting sticks, and throwing rocks in the creek. There's nothing like being surrounded by beauty with the ones you love. Here are a few shots from the day.
