The Calves

Last Friday was Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A. As part of the celebration they offered free meals to anyone who dressed up as a cow. So we loaded up the calves, um I mean kids, and headed in for a free dinner for the family.

We were pleasantly surprised that it really wasn't all that busy. Or maybe that just means there weren't very many people willing to be this silly for a free meal. We did see a few other homeschooling families we knew while there. I guess homeschoolers are just sillier than the rest of the general public, or less willing to pass up on a free meal.

Caught a picture of the kids, but none of Tim and I. Oh yes, that was intentional. The plan kind of backfired though when the local TV station showed up. Oh yes, we were on the 11:00 news to the entire tri-state area. Search as I might though, I could not find a clip on the website. No, really, I did try to find it. Honest.

Though I kind of drug my feet about the whole thing, it really was fun. And who can complain about a free dinner, and no dishes to do?


  1. Kellen looks the least enthuised followed by Lydia. Nolan seems to be enjoying himself along with the attention and Vivian seems to be oblivious as to what is going on. Looks like you had some good laughs. I'm going to seach for that news clip. I sure hope I can find it.

  2. LOL! What a great way to get a meal and make a memory, too. Holly

  3. Oh, we definitely would have dressed up if we'd known about it!!! Of course, the nearest chik-fil-a is 3 hours away, but we could work around that! Very fun.
