It’s Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A! Here’s why we went and how we dressed up. Have you been to this silly day?Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-AOnce a year it’s Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A –

dress like a cow and get a free meal! I’ve known about it for the last couple of years but for one reason or another, it just hasn’t worked for us to get there. This year we made it!

My kids spent hours yesterday making their cow costumes. It was super easy since Chick-Fil-A’s own website has a print and use cow costume! We all got in on it, even my husband! In all, 7 of us (we took along a neighbor girl) got completely free meals this afternoon. The kids even got to spin a wheel and they won coupons for 4 free 8-piece chicken nuggets! If you read my blog, you know how much I LOVE coupons… :-)And, the staff thought we were so cute, they took our picture and gave the kids all a little stuffed cow. It was a lot of fun, even though it was initially a little embarrassing to walk in the restaurant dressed like a cow. We were by far the biggest herd there. At one point my husband remarked, “Where we the only people to get the memo?” He was such a good sport, though! It was fun being a YES Mom instead of a NO Mom.

Here are some pictures from our day:

Did you get your chicken today? If not, maybe you’ll do it next year! I’m pretty sure we’ll do it again, if it works out for us! Really, it was a lot of fun… 🙂

    Thank you so much for reminding us! We made costumes too – Scott ended up joining in and the kids had a great time. They were a little worried about walking in and one of them even joked that it would be embarrassing to go on the wrong day! The employees were so sweet though and while we were eating a few more cow families came in so it was a fun atmosphere. And you can’t beat a free dinner for the family!

    Glad you all went, Ang! Did Scott dress up too? We saw a couple dads in “cowstume.” It’s good to do things outside our comfort level every now and again… 🙂
