Moveable Feast

Callum and I were home on our own last night while Jon and Logan went to the Jodoins' house (Callum's been battling a fever this past week so we didn't want to take any chances with friends).

So instead, he and I met up with my parents to check out the latest Bay Area craze - food trucks!  With Moveable Feast, each night there's a different location with different food trucks to sample from - last night's was the largest in the area, called The (San Jose) Night Market.  There were about 20 different food trucks, a large area for seating (nothing fancy, just upside down paint buckets!), plus a couple of rows of arts & crafts booths and then a couple local DJ's blaring some music for the kids to dance to (super cute).

My parents had actually just been to another set of food trucks for lunch, so we deliberately tried different trucks for dinner.  :)  We had some tasty thai at House of Siam (I think we all agreed their "roti bouquet" was delicious) and then also had a kimchi fried rice burrito at the BBQ Kalbi truck.  Dad liked the burrito more than Mom and I, but that probably has to do with the fact that neither of us are huge kimchi fans!  ;-)

Callum was fascinated by all of the lights, trucks, people, music and dancing.  It was very festive and while he started to get pretty clingy, tired and delirious toward the end of the night, he actually hung on quite well. 

Here's a few quick pics I took with my phone, to share.  I can't wait to try out some of the other locations and to bring Jon and Logan with us next time too!

My parents had already eaten at The Chairman over lunchtime so we skipped it,
but I will definitely be checking it out next time around!  :)
People - EVERYWHERE! (many lines were insanely long!)
My tired kiddo, losing steam....
A kid and a crazy old guy, dancing to some tunes.
The kid was the cute.  The old guy - not so much.  ;-) 
Gorgeous sunset, gorgeous CA weather!  :)
