Solvang

We visited the little town of Solvang while we were camping. It is the Danish Capital of America. It was a great adventure. The kids loved going in all the quaint shops and the food was amazing! I feel like we ate continuously.

Jaileigh, Annie, Michael, Jake and Anthony
The first place we ate was this little restaurant. You had to order at the window and then go find your own seating somewhere on the street.

We ordered an order of Aebleskiver and one alamode style. We also ordered 5 Danish Hot Dogs. Delicious and Divine all of it!

This is the Aebleskiver alamode
It was so delicious!

This is a true Danish Dog. I don't even know what those straws are, I think onion straws. The cucumbers and slightly pickled. It was delicious.

Rancho Oso

Rancho Oso was like a hidden paradise.


We were able to go on several walks and hikes everyday. It was so rejuvenating.

Spring Break

The day after our crazy Saturday we headed out of town for our spring break camping trip. We went to the Rancho Oso campground located in the Los Padres National Forest. It's about 20 miles north of Santa Barbara. It was so gorgeous! It was green and lush and beautiful..

The kids went swimming and it was so cold! I sat in my chair all wrapped up in towels and my sweatshirt.
