Santa Barbara weekend

We headed to Santa Barbara for our now annual February tradition to visit UCSB and eat at all of our favorite places in Isla Vista. We invited my bro and his family as they also graduated from UCSB but rarely go back to visit. We left Saturday am and met in town to eat a small breakfast at Rosaritos. The bfast burrito is still pretty good, but nothing like what it used to be before they changed it years back.

After bfast we walked around campus a bit, stopping by the arbor, Ucen, and we walked out to campus point.

They open up a sealife viewing area on Saturday's where the biology stuff is right before you get to campus point.

Evan liked looking at all the animals.

Near Storke Tower

We picked up Freebirds for lunch and headed to the SB zoo for a few hours.

Can't beat the original SB nachos

We headed back into town and I headed back to campus point to take sunset pics. Clouds ended up being pretty nice.

We had dinner reservations at Bouchon for Jaime's bday dinner. We had high expectations due to the good reviews. A ton of the appetizers on the menu looked good so we had to try them all.
French Onion soup

Pork belly with duck egg

Crab cakes

Scallop Trio

All the appetizers were amazing. Our waiter accommodated us too and asked if we still wanted to order the duck as our last appetizer came out. We were pretty full so we didn't order it and ended dinner with the lava cake.

We'll definitely be back and will have to try the duck and lamb entrée next time.

The next morning I picked up some Cantina bfast burritos and we ate them by the pond at the hotel.

Still the best bfast burrito!

We headed back towards home. The girls stopped by the outlet and Justin and I took the kids to the park to play.

J&J treated us to lunch for Jaime's bday at Lure fishhouse by the outlets.


Fish n chips

Fish tacos

Everything was fresh and real good. Thanks J&J for lunch!

All in all, a good trip with the purpose to eat everything in sight (which was accomplished). Hopefully all the food pics made you hungry!
