What Would You Do For Some Free Food?

What would you do for a free meal?

Our family will dress like cows in order to score a free meal for everyone at Chick-Fil-A on Cow Appreciation Day. Matthew was thrilled when I suggested the idea; Paul was not. I am still in disbelief that I actually got him to go along with it. He was so embarrassed as he began reluctantly pasting the cow spots to the white t-shirt I had selected for him. But in the end, I think he rather enjoyed being a cow. He wore his cow hat longer than the rest of us and he taught Emma how to "moo!"
If you look closely, you can see the little tail that
Matthew insisted that I add to his costume!

However, he wouldn't let me color the tip of his nose black to match the rest of us. Spoil sport.

Before we could take a picture of Emma in her costume, she had eaten the majority of the cow spots we had pasted to her clothing. She still got a free meal even though the majority of her costume was inside her fat cheeks by the time it was our turn to order.

We were allowed to order anything we wanted off the menu. I tried the new grilled chicken sandwich. Holy Cow - it was delicious! Emma gobbled down her nuggets and Matthew and Paul happily munched on fried chicken sandwiches. Paul was a little embarrassed seeing the other customers coming in and ordering as we sat there eating in our costumes. There were not very many people dressed up and I had pretty much convinced Paul that everyone there would be dressed like cows as well (that may or may not have been the reason he finally agreed to go!). We had a lot of people pointing at us and giggling. We certainly did look silly! But who cares? We got a delicious meal out of it! Everyone left full and happy.

Well, almost everyone. Emma didn't want to leave.


  1. These are adorable. So fun seeing your Emma grow up compared to my Luke. How do you feel about arranged marriages??? =)

  2. You're a fun-loving family for sure. You look great!
