Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Chick-fil-A #CowAppreciationDay

Chick-fil-A #CowAppreciationDay

Today was one of my favorite days of the year-Chick-fil-A's cow appreciation day. My habit the last 5 years has been to dress myself and my children up in cow costumes and go to Chick-fil-A to get FREE food! On bonus about this year is that Drew was able to go!

We started preparing for it yesterday. During Justin's nap, Charis and I pulled out white clothes, drew cow spots on the clothes, and colored them in. Before leaving for Chick-fil-A this afternoon, Charis drew a picture of a cow and wrote "cows milk" (yes, without the apostrophe). When she showed it to me, she said, "I wrote it because we get milk from cows." (See photo below. I also use the word "cow" loosely to describe her drawing. IMO, it did not look like a cow. In her defense, we do not live near cows, and she did not have a picture of a cow in front of her.)

After arriving at Chick-fil-A, I'm sad to write that my patience was wearing thin. I told Charis that she had to decide what she was getting at home, which she did, but she wanted orange juice, not apple juice or milk. I told her that "The choices are apple juice, milk, or chocolate milk." She realized that she was not getting orange juice and settled on apple juice.

The Chick-fil-A at Tech Road had face painting for children!! Woohoo!!!! Charis picked a design that reminded her of Queen Elsa.

All in all, it was a good time. (And I'm thankful for God's forgiveness for my impatience.)

Did you participate in cow appreciation day?


  1. We always do Cow Day. It's a family tradition. We even got my sister to go with us this year. Sometimes you just have to be silly and have fun!

  2. Hehe! This is cute - I never knew they did this.

  3. We participated in Cow Appreciation Day again and the girls love it. I Love it because it gives us a project we get a reason to hang out at our favorite restaurant and the inner dressup girl in me gets to dress up (as a Cow) in public. It was a fun day!

  4. Great pictures. It looks like you guys had a lot of fun. All four of my girls joined in for the first time and had a blast. I was working at the time and had no idea that this was an annual Chick-fil-A tradition. I pretty sure that we'll be making this an annual tradition in our home too.
