Over the weekend, my family went to a food truck fair at a local Malibu park on the bluffs. There was no admission – just bring your picnic blanket and an appetite! There were about ten food trucks, from Indian to Mexican to sushi to crepes, so we had a culinary adventure and an affordable, fun family day.

Here’s a pictorial diary of our day:

Stella was a big fan of their quesadillas, and I loved their surfer nachos.

Kicking back and lovin’ my shorty boots for the third summer in a row…they’ve proven to be a summer staple.

Wearing a necklace I got on the beach in Anguilla. Organic jewelry such as this wooden necklace is a summer essential! You can purchase this one and others at Inventori.com.

Stella saying, “Mama look how big I am. Am I bigger?” Kids want to grow up so fast. And they do. I remember asking my parents the same thing, and now I’m almost a mama of three. Time flies…

Well, there you have it! You don’t have to spend much money to have a family fun day. Just check your local paper for fairs or festivals in your area. That’s what I did! And the result was a day of great food, music, sun, activities, new friends, and just being together as a family.

Food truck fairs are perfect for family entertainment. Options range from comfort food to cutting edge fusion cuisine, so picky eaters and adventurous foodies can go home happy. Plus, food trucks are all the rage in LA!

Do you have food trucks in your town too? What’s your favorite food truck you’ve discovered?
