Saturday, the Collins Family split up (a first for us all!) and had a collective "Me Time" Day. Casey went to play golf with his brother and dad. Beatrice Kate spent the day with Grandma doing Grandma-y things like reading and getting spoiled. And I, well, I stayed home and I may or may not have spent a small fortune on silk drapery at Pottery Barn.
What? I got a little carried away, I'll admit it. Since then, I've detoxed from the Showroom Bender and come to my senses. A lady with two smelly dogs and a messy, food-wielding toddler has no business with silk drapes. They must be returned and will be replaced by very similar, yet very economical (and washable) versions from Target. Ah, but I was livin' the dream for a moment I'll tell you.
Anyway, this post isn't about silk drapes. It's about a little event we heard about last week: The Food Truck Rodeo. Before you get all carried away with visions of cowboys riding atop a Taquito Truck, read this article. When I started getting tweets and Facebook messages from all my Raleigh friends, asking if we were going, I knew we had stumbled onto something good.
|Well, 2/3 of our family was excited to go ...|
Apparently, so did about 6,000 other Durham residents because this. place. was. packed.
|Estimated wait time... 600 years. At least.|
And being the incredibly responsible parents that we are, we quickly decided that our one-shot-stop at the Durham Food Truck Rodeo would be ice cream. That's right- our kid had ice cream for dinner:
|Not so sure about this ...|
|I'll just do it myself ...|
|Just need to scoop a little up on my spoon ...|
|Mmmm. Chocolate Sauce.|
|Wait a minute. IT"S ALL GONE. This is not okay you guys.|
And, she LOVED. IT.
|Next up: Mountain Dew in a baby bottle.|
|This is what Heaven tastes like.|
|Hey, I know you!|
|No, I know you!|
|Ok, fine. We know each other. Now, follow me around.|
|So much fun to walk in a circle.|
|Stomping is optional. Style is not.|
|Monkey See. Monkey Do. Why is this so familiar? Oh yea.|
