This weekend was awesome! We decided to let go of the heat, and take a run for the beach. It was a fun filled trip from beginning to end. We drove to Morro Bay and Avila Beach, then to Pismo and Santa Maria. We ate cheaply, bringing lots of food with us and taking advantage of free breakfastt at a hotel (which was also cheap, but safe and clean). We went to the Santa Barbara County Fair (took advantage of free admission for everyone except for me!), where all the boys got to sit on a cow, touch the lambs, see the pigs, and look at all the other FFA and 4H animals. Rides? We skipped the rides, the kids had a ball walking around, and we enjoyed the family friendly atmosphere. We enjoyed the cooler air-and bundled up in sweaters when it became cold at night. It was great, and amazingly a cheap weekend! The one big shocker, that I got over real fast, was all the parking and places that used to be free admission, you now pay for. Eh, its all part of travel (and we didn't get gouged on the cost). We're already planning our next trip, I think Monterey later this week, followed by more trips to the coast between now and when school starts next month (in four weeks, can you believe it?). I'll post pictures later (as we're already heading out to our next adventure!). Stay cool!
