During the first weekend in October, a local park has an Outdoor Experience. Visitors can try out different outdoor experiences, watch dogs jump off a dock, and camp out, etc . . .
You never know what the weather is going to be like during this experience. Sometimes it is cold, cool, or even wet. This year it was record temperatures. It was 80 some degrees outside.
The Imaginative One got super hot and didn’t feel good for a while. He got some water and sat in the shade for a little bit and then felt better.
So what did I eat at this Outdoor Experience?
There was a lot of vegetarian options at the different food trucks. Vegan quesadillas at one food truck, hummus and pita at the Gyro food truck, and a red bean and lentil burger at another food truck. I chose one of my favorite food trucks to get my lunch.
I love Harvest especially the fries from there. The fries are a mixture of russets and sweet potato with herbs and a sriracha ketchup. Super yummy!
Here is a list of what they had as choices. As you can see there was 3 vegetarian options plus the fries. It was a tough decision because I almost bought all 3 options.
The Sprouts, Melt, and Black Bean and Quinoa Falfel Tacos were my choices. I went with the Melt because you can’t go wrong with a grilled cheese sandwich.
As soon as Hubby saw my fries, he made a bee line to Harvest to get his own order. I shared my fries with the Wee One. He’s the more adventurous eater. He also tried the sriracha ketchup. Didn’t like it though.
I also got a frozen lemonade that I forgot to take photo. I shared that with the Wee One.
The Wee One and Hubby went off to ride in the kayaks so I had the Imaginative One who got super hot. We ended up getting food at a food truck called the McNasty.
The Imaginative One was able to get a burger there. I ate some Butter Pecan Ice Cream from my favorite dairy.
So that’s what I ate at the Outdoor Experience.
Do you want to see some photos from the experience?
The Wee One told me that all the dogs visiting the Outdoor Experience must be what Heaven is like. He told me that he wants to be a professional dog petter as an adult.
Thank you random stranger who stood there while he got a photo with his dog.
Dog jumping – So cool! One jumped 18 feet!
The Wee One kayaking.
Very hot penguin – The Imaginative One told me he would quit if he dressed in a costume like the penguin on a hot day like Sunday.
Now onto a serious matter. As you can see all of my family members are wearing life jackets. After the experience closed for the year, a man in his 50s went into the river without a life jacket. They are currently searching for his body now. Such a sad situation to a great festival. Please pray / send good thoughts to that family.
Life jackets are important. Please wear them.
Hope you enjoy my photos from the Outdoor Experience.
Happy vegetarian eating,
