There are so many things to do in Santa Barbara with babies, but a few of my favorites are yoga, bike rides, and the "Butterflies Alive!" exhibit at the Museum of Natural History.
We take yoga classes with Emma, at SBYC, and also with Dani at Yoga Soup. See earlier posts for more info on these.
For bike rides, we have a sturdy baby/toddler seat that attaches to the back of my husband's bike, and a tiny helmet we found at the thrift store. Isla LOVES bike rides, and it's the best way to get her to take a nap. We park at the estuary by Stella Mare's and take the bikes down the trail and all over downtown. Today we parked at the pier at Goleta Beach and took the bike trail through UCSB and around IV. We love bike rides for the outdoor time and the workout, but the best part about it is that we get fun family time all together. **Isla's adorable kimono sweater is available at Craft Junkie Creations, and is easily my favorite piece of clothing she owns.
The "Butterflies Alive!" exhibit is so much fun for kids and babies, and is best when it's sunny outside. I really would like to live in this place - butterflies were literally everywhere. Isla was fascinated and entertained the entire time, and surprisingly not frustrated at not being able to hold one.
