There’s nothing really like street food, is there?
Sweet Summer Lemonade
Now that David’s nap schedule has changed a bit and he’s up pretty much from about 3/3:30-7:30p, Justin and I have longed to have something to do in the evenings so they don’t drag.
Don’t get me wrong, David’s not boring to be with, but there’s only so many games of parachute or walks around the neighborhood before you need some variety.
I discovered that there was a Food Truck Rodeo downtown Raleigh last weekend and made plans to go with some friends who also have a little guy. The sky was a little bit threatening, but we pressed on regardless.
I expected that there would be a fair amount of people there, but holy cow it was packed! And there were trucks from all over North Carolina!
So not only was the people watching in abundance, but the masses of delicious food seemed to never end.
There were so. many. trucks. that had the longest lines and I was dying to see if it was worth the wait, but hunger pains took over and I settled with a delicious meatball sandwich from a truck whose name has left me.
My friend Iana did a little research on the drive over and wanted to get a Crepe from Parlez-Vous Crepe. I obviously hopped right on that train and stood in line with her for a good 20 minutes. After going back and forth over what we wanted, we decided to get one of each (of the sweet ones) and split them.
The crepes were rich. Tasty, but rich.
That’s Wesley, Mark and Iana’s son. He’s about 2 months younger than David.
Both boys did great while we binged on crepes. Wesley is pretty good at chillin’ in his stroller, but David needed to be a part of the action. He was in the happiest little mood, and wanted to take in all the action that was going on around him.
It was a Sunday well spent.
And well eaten.
