Oklahoma City Food Trucks
Around 7 p.m. last night, I told the kids to get out of the pool. We were going on an adventure!
Barefoot and still wearing their bathing suits, we piled in the car and drove south. The kids love to drive across the bridge under construction on Western Avenue, the one that runs over the Oklahoma River.
Bridgette, you are so beautiful to me, especially with the sunlight on your face at sunset. Never lose your love.
I love these streets.
On Friday nights, they boom with Latin pop music, young lovers and Mexican food trucks. Prepare your taste buds for fire-hot green sauce, juicy asada burritos and colorful sodas swimming in ice.
Sully, your back is strong, and there is no need for you to ever settle for land east of the Jordan.
Jarritos Mexican Soda
Jarritos come in all flavors including strawberry, mango and pineapple. Sometimes, I feel like an intruder when I show up uninvited. The night is unrehearsed, unadulterated by some stilted festival that will never capture the authentic, private parade of preference and patriotism.
Mexican Cowboy Boots
This is the daughter of the owner of El Rancho Western Wear, the Baskin Robbins of Mexican Cowboy boots in Oklahoma City. She was nice enough to let me take some pictures. I assured her that this post would result in at least one sale of boots to a gringo.
So many flavors to choose from. How will you decide?
Would you call this fuschia or magenta? More pointy Mexican boots.
Bridgy loves cowgirl boots! With that dark hair and big brown eyes she could pass as an authentic Mexican cowgirl! Ride ’em, Bridgy! I promised her we’d come back and buy her a pair!
This is what you call a bevy of beauties: Mexican Cowgirl Boots
I’ll take these, please. They look like gators!
A bit elfin for me, but I’m digging the stitching on the denim pair.
I’m glad they didn’t have that awful sign, No shirt, no shoes, no service. Sully was still wearing his bathing suit when we decided to pop in. He wanted to buy this big Mexican boot for Daddy. The kids absolutely had a ball in this store! A treasure trove of colors and fun!
I try to teach my children that adventure is around every corner, and that it doesn’t always cost money to have fun. They’ve come to enjoy exploring the sites and sounds of the city.
I hope they each explore far beyond the streets of Oklahoma City someday. I want them to see and experience the whole world so when they finally do settle down they’ll know exactly where they want to be. Maybe they’ll even don a pair of pointy Mexican boots!
