Park Afternoon.

The big park in front of our apartment is awesome. It’s the entire length of our street! There are paths, a playground (I heard a rumor today that it was going to be torn down and completely rebuilt so we’ll see! I bet it’ll be cool if that happens!), a big field area and a baseball/kickball field. There are always lots of people playing soccer there. The Providence Kickball League uses it for games every Saturday during the summer. It’s an all day thing and really fun to go and hang out. I’ve seen rec little league teams practicing there, too. The once a week farmer’s market is pretty neat. It’s not as big as some of the markets I’ve seen in food documentaries but it’s still cool and has a good variety. If you happen to not have any cash on you, you can stop by the main table and use your debit/credit card to purchase coins good for $5 that you can use at any of the booths. We happened to have 2 of them kicking around our apartment from a previous week so we grabbed those and headed over. First we checked out all of the tents. We wandered down to the end of them to our new favorite spot: De Las Olas taco truck! We kind of go there a lot. They use lots of local stuff. Dan always gets the fish burritos- they catch the fish themselves right here in RI. I always get the veggie and share it with Max. There are grilled sweet potatoes in them which are pretty amazing! After that we sat on our front steps and ate them, then crossed back over to the Like No Udder dessert truck. Everything they sell vegan/non-dairy. Versions of popular candy bars, shakes, and soft serve. 2 chocolate/vanilla twist soft serve cones later and we bought a cute little jar of local maple syrup with our coins. Towards the playground there was a band playing awesome music so we hung out there for about an hour and bumped into a few people we know. I really love our neighborhood!
