A Week in Santa Barbara

Last week, Matt went to the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy in Berekely, so I took the train down to Santa Barbara to visit with family for a few days. On Wednesday, Matt drove down and met me there for the rest of the week. We also took the opportunity to exchange birthday and Mother's Day gifts. We gave James this Threadless tee that he could not stop staring at.

The mom's both got clapotises made by yours truly. Here's my Mom modeling hers.

While I was there, I made a couple of swap items. Tanya got a pair of cabled fingerless gloves that I forgot to take pics of before I sent them off. (Oops! I hope she can send me pics when they get to her!) And I sent this Common Raven off to Elizabeth. It's my first celtic style border. What do you think? (Sorry for the image quality. I didn't have my scanner and I couldn't get the lighting right.)

Image size = approx. 8" x 10"

On Friday, I went to the zoo with my brother, sister, nephew and my husband. We got there just before closing and almost didn't stay. But it turned out great because most of the animals were out and moving around, waiting to be fed and put away for the night.

The Santa Barbara Zoo recently got a bunch of penguins. They're adorable! I just love penguins.

We also spent a little time on the playground before leaving.
