The family that dresses like cows together

Gets free Chick-fil-A together.

Friday, I decided that we were going to do the dress like a cow thing and head to Chick-Fil-A. After all, #1 thinks daddy is bringing her chicken home for dinner almost every day.

After I got dressed, #1 was ready to “be a cow.” She said “mommy, I’m a little cow…

“…and #2’s a little cow…”

“and mommy’s a big cow!!” Ouch.

(The crown had my ears on it…they kept falling backwards).

#1 was actually terrified of the cow that was there. There is a trend: Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, and the Chick-Fil-A cow are all terrifying. We kept having to wave him off.

Can you see the terror?

#2 could have cared less about the cow. She wanted the chicken. Like yesterday.

Hmmmm…which one should I lick first?

And, our little 9 month old certainly didn’t have any ice cream…

…and she didn’t bang on the table with both hands and scream when I took it away. And, of course, she wasn’t drinking that juice in the juice box either (to which Mr. Serious said “did you let #1 drink juice at 9 months?”).

Of course, after dinner (because who would do it before dinner), #1 went in the bounce house and caught some serious air. Might have been because she didn’t eat because she was terrified of the cow.

And, yes, there was a family cow picture, but alas, my eyes are once again closed. I’m going to start putting toothpicks in my eyes for picture time!

We really had a great time and it wasn’t too crowded. And, of course, we aren’t too proud to dress as cows for some free chicken.

  1. Looks like you had a GREAT time! Wonderful pics. Love the ones with the ice cream!

  2. You are so cow-afty! I know that was horrible but it was the first idea that popped in and I'm simply not willing to dig deeper.

    Also, this trend of you holding out on me with pictures has got to stop.

  3. You are hilarious!!! I wish I lived closer to you, so we could do crazy stuff like this together!

    Our nearest Chick-Fil-A is 50 miles away… and don't think I haven't considered driving just for one of their breakfast sandwiches.

  4. Totally love your cow crown…Queen Cow. Izzy is too funny…I wonder how long that cow will scare her! Charlie gulps that ice cream down too (wait, is there anything that Charlie doesn't gulp down!?)

    It is probably a good thing that she didn't eat before bouncing. I've seen too many kids yak in there from bouncing after eating. ugh. 😉

    We love us some Chic-fil-A! Our church had a "Lawn Chair Night" a couple of weeks ago. Everyone brought lawn chairs to sit around and chat while munching on the catered meal: Chic-fil-A!! The cow was entertaining the kids so much, they nearly forgot to get their s'mores.

  12. Ok, y'all make the third family I know that got to do this! I wish I lived close enough to one to have been the fourth!:)

  15. How cute!

    I was wondering if anyone would really dress up like a cow. I saw the sign and was tempted because they have some awesome chicken.

  16. Sparkette says:

    GREAT PICTURES!!! LOL! 🙂 Wha fun for you guys. I have seen those signs and I was wondering if I had to roll up in a full costume! 🙂

  17. She is still a cutie though!

    Tristan isn't able to understand enough to "give a talking to" yet.

    But he is all boy!

  18. Yeah we didn't get to make it to Chick-Fil-A but looks like your kiddo's had a great time!

  19. So fun! Isn't it interesting how much more "relaxed" we are with second one? Hope N enjoyed her juice box and ice cream!

  20. I love that y'all did this as a family!! The pictures rock!! I saw the sign for this while I was getting some oh-so-addictive sweet tea there the other day and I thought how fun it would be to see everyone all decked out!!

    P.S. love your tiara!!!

    P.S.S. Thanks so much for your sweet comment!! Xoxo I really appreciate it!!!

  21. okay, that is awesome! Was this a special event or can you get free chick fil a anytime you dress like a cow?

  22. HAHA! That? Is totally classic. You are much more brave than I 🙂

  23. My kids have character costume issues too. Except for the 3 year old, whom we learned would sell all of us to hang with Mr.Peanut. Fortunatly, they don't take families on exchange; but they will get you to pay an insane amount of money for a pound of nuts. Thanks to mommy being a sucker and the NJ boardwalk being outrageously priced.

  24. How cute, love the dress like cows for free chicken, how hilarious. What good sports you guys are, did anyone in the store say anything?

  25. That is too cute! I love the picture of her looking in the distance. Definitely fear lurking behind her eyes!

  26. Aww, the cutest little cows ever!! Good thing Izzy didn't eat, I have visions of a puke filled bounce house haha!
