Father’s Day started with a morning of fun at Alice Keck Memorial Park Gardens which has pathways winding through the beautiful gardens, little bridges and a large pond with ducks, turtles and koi fish.

Then we skipped across the street to Alameda Park which features a giant 8000 square foot playground.

Then it was off to Carpinteria where I explored a few antique shops and we had a picnic at the beach

And then back to our hotel for swimming in the pool and eating pizza by the firepit until it was time for the little ones to head to bed.

Happy Fathersday Randy – I am sure you are loving spending it with the kids this year. Tonya, your pictures are just perfect! I have followed your advise and bought picnic but am finding the site very slow. Any advice?

Wow, I like the last pic. After the full day you had, the feet up and wine does the trick. Vacation seems awesome. Wondering if you pre-planned or just going….

Cat: I think it depends on your server. Im finding it so much slower while Im on the road and having to connect to various hotels servers, whereas at home I was using cable and it was really quick. It could also have something to do with how many people are on-line using it. Oh and I find if I reduce the size of my photo down to about 1600, the system works way quicker than if I use a photo at full-size. For blogs I dont mind reducing the size, but if Im printing them then I use full-size.Susan: We pre-booked our hotels and some destinations I had planned on us going to, others weve just found along the way or taken advice out of the brochures at the hotels we are staying at

Beautiful pics as always! I wish I could just tag along for a while to figure out how you take such great photos and how you edit them! Still cant figure that out!!!! BTW, Marisol looks SO much older to me all of the sudden. I bet the kids are so darn excited to be with mommy and daddy together.
