Food Trucks: Austin Part 3

*Check out part 1 (the surprise) and part 2 (house stalking). I knew that I was gonna like Austin, but the food truck scene made me love it. They have these little spots with 5 or 6 food trucks all over the city and they're pretty sweet. For this round, we stopped in south Austin to get breakfast tacos before Andy headed back to Houston. But we start this food truck adventure with DONUTS!

I am partaking in a little false advertising with this Gourdough's Donut Streamliner, because I didn't actually eat them. They are loaded with dairy and we were about to be in the car for 14 hours-- you do the math. But how adorable is this little truck? Also, over 1,000 people on yelp just can't be wrong. 20140606-090943-32983167.jpg

LB got super thirsty after finding the food truck "trailer park"... and clearly, super excited too. 20140606-090942-32982471.jpg

The boys were as happy as two boys who just had delicious breakfast tacos are bound to be (read: THRILLED). (Please note the oblivious grumpy old man on the bench. He makes me laugh) 20140606-090939-32979624.jpg I was already entering my "Andy is leaving" sad phase (it's clinical: AILSP. Look it up), when I spotted this random little resturant amidst all the food truck glory. There is something about the color that just makes me wanna smile. 20140606-090943-32983883.jpg

And then we hit the road. We jammed out to Mumford (typical), Need to Breathe, some old school 80s hair band jams, Bruce Springsteen, and Howard Stern. We ate In 'n Out in the middle of a Texas strip mall. Stopped in OKC to see my favorite tree and to say hi to the boys from TNT. Cruised into Witchita, Kansas where we scored a Hyatt for $70. In the lobby of the hotel that night I unknowingly tore my labrum in my shoulder. I say unknowingly despite the fact that the pain dropped me to the floor. It didn't matter though because even through my AILSP, and the physical pain in my shoulder, when LB pulled off the freeway outside of Witchita the next day I got the best shots I probably will ever take.

Just as a teaser, y'all can gander at this picture of a little barn somewhere in Oklahoma that I snapped from the car. 20140606-090944-32984658.jpg

Do you suffer from your own version of AILSP? I also get EILSP (Esther is leaving sad phase) big time.
