First off, hats off to my dear husband for humoring me for free food! I know he was hesitant as we were scrambling to dress up 10 minutes before walking out the door. The Chick Fil A Website had a printable costume kit with ears, a nose, spots and a tail.
If you dressed up from head to tail in cow gear you got a full meal. If you only halfway dressed up you got a free entree.
The kids of course got dressed up fully because they were forced too. My 4 year old was totally into it. My 2 year was not.
He cried and cried as I tried taping stuff to his white outfit. The boys did not nap well today…again. So tears were sure to arrive from someone. It was the 2 year old’s turn.
When we arrived at Chick Fil A we were a little nervous, no one else inside looked dressed up from our view from the parking lot. My husband asked if I could go in first (yes he was a bit dubious).
As we got inside we still felt a bit awkward. I asked the cashier “Would you agree the 3 kids are dressed up from head to toe? ” “Yes”, she answered.
“Good” I jokingly said, “because we had to beat into submission the youngest boy to wear this”. He tears finally stopped as I pulled his cow-ear-taped-to-baseball cap off.
I wore a polka dot (kinda cow looking) black and white head bandanna and my husband wore an “Eat More Chicken” sign for 2 entire seconds.
Of course after we sat down tons of people dressed up came in. In fact, if you were odd looking if you were not dressed up at that point. We had a great time and as we finished up our outing in the playground, the big Cow himself came out to MOOOVEE crowds.
