"udder"ly priceless...

today was annual "cow appreciation day" at chick-fil-a....or, in other words, "dress like a cow and get free chicken" day! :) we weren't originally planning to go, but after hearing a promo segment on k-love this morning, elizabeth exclaimed, "mommy...i have a cow costume...can WE get free CHICKALAY!?" and really, how could i resist the excitement of an almost four year old...or the lure of a free dinner!

and so...mike and i fashioned our cow gear while the girls napped this afternoon. well, lucky for us, we had one official cow costume from this past halloween (although kate got to sport it this time since elizabeth's sprouted quite taller since then!). we called up some friends who also were totally into making fools out of themselves dressing like cows...and voila...off we went!

here's our herd...
libbers was particularly enthralled by the whole experience! she even asked to wear her cow costume to bed tonight...
as if free dinner wasn't enough, our chick-fil-a also had a petting zoo, free pony rides, and a bounce house...SCORE!
ride 'em "cow"girl! elizabeth LOVED the pony ride...taking a turn on both ponies! (one more sign she is taking after her aunt shell!)


they also had a goat, bunny, miniature pony of some sort, and chicks for petting..kate got to poke pet a bunny!
...and libbers had her turn as well...
no pictures of their fun in the bounce house...but trust me...they had a great time.

all in all, i would say it was an "udder"ly priceless evening in more ways than one!

I so wish we had a Chick Fil A near us...I miss it!! My very favorite of all the fast food joints. Ah, but I probably save a fortune not having one here. Yummo!

You guys are just cracking me up in those costumes!! I really love that Mike was brave enough to wear it, ah, the memories your kids will have!

Adorable! I have never been to a chickfila - I think I may have told you that before - any way, this made me want to go to one even more. We have an adult cow costume that is just hilarious...
