Rolling Hills to Rollercoasters

The trip to Santa Barbara has been a whirlwind of activity. From basketball and science lessons at Westmont College, to executive level decision making at the Reagan Library, to surfing and sailing, horseback riding, swimming, and visiting the Santa Barbara Mission, Zoo, Sea Center, Natural History Museum AND MORE! It has been quite a trip.

Families and businesses in Santa Barbara have continued to pour out the support, hosting lunches and dinners, providing gifts, tours and educational opportunities. Even the local media has gotten into the action with front page newspaper coverage, radio interviews, and TV broadcasts.

The trip has now shifted to the Los Angeles area for Magic Mountain, the Long Beach Aquarium, and Disneyland! You see dreams really do come true!


  1. It's such a blessing to live in a community like Santa Barbara!

  2. I love these pictures, Michael (and team).
    You have captured well the wide range of activities the kids got to do while here.

    And since they are gone, and we miss them, it's nice to at least be able to look at their pictures.
