Friday Night Field Trip

Welcome to Friday Night Field Trip
FNFT is a little feature that highlights our experiences exploring our new surroundings in California.

This week we just strolled up the the street for Burbank's

Be-boppin' in the Park

The town of Burbank closed Magnolia Blvd. between Hollywood Way and California St and lined the road with pre 1972 Vintage Cars. Also along the strip were games for kids, information stands about the town, food vendors, and a live band with a dance floor in the middle of the street.

We started our vintage inspired day with a good ol' classic Coke.

We've had a mild summer, but on this day it was super hot.

Carl and I made our way down the street checking out all the beautiful car's.
These are two of Carl's favorites from the show. His all time favorite car is the 1960 Impala but there wasn't one at this show.

Carl use to own 2 vintage cars (one was a Bel air, the other was an Impala) and he had worked on them for years restoring them. He made the decision to sell them in order to help pay for school so he could pursue his dream. He is now working his dream job and living in his dream location because he went to school. His new dream is to be able to own another vintage car one day.

This was my favorite vintage car, an old VW Van. Look what they did to the interior, so cute!

We also liked the vintage police car and fire engine.

Even though we live within walking distance of Magnolia Blvd., we haven't gotten to explore all the stores that line the street. Thankfully, all the stores along the strip were open and we got to visit many of them. There is a new  vintage inspired dress store called Audrey K and I love it! All the pieces are beautiful and if I could I would fill my closet with them.

I just had to stop and stare and then pet this HUGE Great Dane that was trying to enjoy the show but ended up enjoying all the attention. This picture doesn't do it justice, it's head was bigger than mine and I can only imagine how tall it would have been have it stood up on it's back legs!

We ended our day with a trip to Rocket Fizz to pick up a bunch of sweet treats and soda's before we retired for the evening to the couch where we curled up and watched a movie. It was a beautiful day and other than lunch it didn't cost us a penny.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed our FNFT as much as we did.
We are still crossing our fingers for a beach trip before school starts so stay tuned!
