Isla Vista

my dad came to visit last week. it was a quick trip, but one that we tried to pack full of lots of silliness and fun things.

we had phenomenal weather while he was here, and took advantage of it by spending a lovely little afternoon in isla vista (the college neighborhood behind us). isla vista is like… peter pan and the lost boys. it’s populated almost entirely by college students (like, thousands of 18-20 year olds). but there’s a lot of great spots for families too, and i think we came up with a pretty great isla vista agenda.

stop number one: freebirds for nachos to split.

are you ready for a life-changing nacho related tip? get ready to thank me: guacamole and barbecue sauce together. uh.may.zing.

stop number two: crushcakes for cupcakes.

i let cruz eat one before his lunch because i’m the mom of the year.
stop number three: enjoy it all at the dinosaur park!
it was perfect and warm and full of chasing cruz and moving our cupcakes out of london’s ever-increasing radius. isla vista is full of little gems, right here in our backyard. and come back soon, dad! we miss you!
