KC Fun: Food Truck Festival

Monday, September 19, 2016

Happy Monday! Sorry I've been MIA lately, but this KC Mama has been crazy busy! So busy, I found myself in bed around 8:30 on most nights and not apologizing for it. But, I'm back and I'm sharing with you some fun things that have been going on around here!

We had an awesome weekend and Sunday was the ultimate Sunday Funday or Family Funday, whichever you prefer. We spent the morning just lazing around, but the afternoon found us out and about. We started at the Farmstead where we spent a couple of hours exploring and listening to McKinley has he provided us a nice guided tour. I was so afraid that he had outgrown the farmstead, but after yesterday, my fear has been put to rest. After that, it was time to head to the Food Truck Festival. 

McKinley is a huge fan of trucks. It doesn't matter what truck, he loves them all. But right now, he's obsessed with food trucks. And, he has waited patiently all summer so he can watch the Great Food Truck Race on Food Network. So when the reminder popped up on Facebook yesterday morning, Joel and I decided this was a must attend event. 

There were roughly seven different trucks offering a large variety of eats. They had Italian, pub food, an ice cream truck, a creme brulee truck (so good), and Mexican. We settled on the pub food, The Moose Truck from the Blue Moose, because they had chicken tenders. Actually, it was the only place that had kid food. Or at least kid food that our picky eater would eat. Joel had their turkey pesto panini and I had a good ole fashion cheeseburger. All of it was so good. In addition to the trucks, there was live entertainment, which McKinley rocked out to while waiting in line, tons of kids activities like bubbles, sidewalk chalk, giant Frisbees, and more. And of course, there was a playground. McKinley played so hard that he was the sweatiest little mess I've ever seen. He was in heaven.

After we finally got him off the playground, we headed to the dessert trucks. McKinley wanted ice cream, but mama went all out decadence with creme brulee. I mean, if they have a truck there, you need to indulge. It was the cutest little cup of dessert I've ever seen and incredibly delicious. If you ever see Torched Goodness-Creme Brulee out in the city, stop and get some! You will not be disappointed. 

Here are few pics from our time at the festival.


This is an annual event and we definitely plan to head back next year. Such a fun little event in the heart of South Overland Park!

Happy Monday!
