kicking summer out the door

we spent one of the teen's last few days of summer vacation down at the beach, with her friend rock-ell and the bean.  we headed down to huntington beach one day after i got back from work and made a beeline for one of those trolley rental booths.  for $25, we got to ride around in this for an hour:


the bean really liked kickin' it in the front seat.


the beach was gorgeous that day, although the water was fri-hi-gid.  didn't stop us from dipping our toes in, at least.

i'd read that a five guys had just opened in the OC that weekend, and when i mentioned it to the teen, she was all over it.  i pulled it up on my phone and found that we were less than 10 miles from it, and it was even on the way home!  yay!


the line was a little ridiculous, though.  i'm such a sucker.


it looked just like the one we'd visited in charleston a few weeks earlier.


although this one was adorned with customer-decorated postcards that proclaimed it "better than in-n-out."  BLASPHEMY!


and then somehow, as we were heading home, i remembered that the get shaved food truck - offering authentic hawaiian shave ice - was going to be stopped in pomona.  again, on our way home.  whee!  i was excited to pop my food truck cherry.


beach, bike, burgers, and our first food truck experience.  pretty awesome day, i'd say.
