Cow Appreciation Day

Yikes!!! It's been a long time since I've posted here, but this is definitely blog worthy. Do you remember the line from the movie "As Good As It Gets"? "Go sell crazy some place else- we're all stocked up here", well that's us! I have been sick for the past few days. This is down in bed sick with an earache and fever sick- but wait!!!! It's cow appreciation day at Chick-fil-a. Who misses that? I asked the kids if they still wanted to go and Mason resolutely answered "Absolutely!" Nate was game as long as there were other cows there. We got all our spots on and headed to chick-fil-a. I think we hit every stop light and the stares were comical. Of course chick-fil-a is in the mall too. All those people! Oh well, it's free food. It was so fun :) We got there and there were plenty of other cows and people were yelling "cute costumes". They rang the bell when they saw us and ushered us over to spin the wheel for prizes and had a basket full of candy for the kids. We won free drinks and sandwiches for our next visit. We ordered our food and the cashier said she loved to see families coming in to do this- not just the kids. She gave us all adult combo meals and told us about the new store that was going to be opening soon and that the first 100 people in the store on opening day would win free food for a year. Hmmm maybe a campout in our future? As we headed home I realized that we were out of gas. I so didn't want to get gas in a cow costume- maybe we could make it home. Yeah right- maybe if there wasn't an accident that diverted us totally off our route home. What's worse than getting gas in a cow costume? Running out of gas in a cow costume. All in all it was such a fun day. It was a nice change to be "fun and crazy" mom for a change instead of just "busy and serious mom".
*o.k. I know Mason looks like he has rabbit ears, but that's the best we could do with a cat costume. Nate's ears look like Goofy, but from the side they are cow ears.

I wanted to see a picture of you in your costume. What's up with that??? I've been sick too, so I didn't go to church today. Where are they opening a new chick-fil-a?? In clinton I hope, it's my fav. We went to a chick-fil-a in West Jordyn, after the tour of the new temple. I love those chick-fil-a's that are out of the mall, we really need one here.

Do you like how I spelled West Jordyn (habit) I guess.
