Kye’s FAVORITE place to go is to Chick-Fil-A. Hands down, no questions asked. And as a mama, I LOVE Chick-Fil-A too. Great food, clean environment, super friendly employees, play area, and especially awesome family nights! On Tuesday April 16th our local Chick-Fil-A had a Pirates and Princess Night. Um, duh. We were gonna be there 🙂 Plus I love that every Tuesday is family night and when you buy one adult meal you can get a free kids one!
Zach was out of town working so I planned on going solo but asked if Casey wanted to tag along too and it turned out Jordan was going to be home late from work as well. Kye is in a BIG G-Mama phase and he wanted her to come so since Mr. Rusty also was working late that night she surprised Kye and came too. Us Aflac wives are kinda an awesome group haha
I found Kye a really cool pirate costume at a kid’s sale for only $6 and he looked AWESOME! He also brought along his Captain Hook hook too, of course 😉
Britt doesn’t yet own any dress up clothes but I randomly had a princess t-shirt! It must be a hand-me-down because it was def worn before and I don’t remember buying it haha. I LOVE that I have so many sweet friends who pass along their girl clothes to me! I thought she’d be a funky princess and I threw together a fun outfit for her to wear to fit the theme!
While I was excited about the fun theme, my MAIN motivation for going to the Family Night (and the reason I’m going to try to attend a couple a month if we can) was to get Britt used to the Cow. She FREAKED about the Easter Bunny and with her first Disney trip coming up within a years time I don’t want her to have any fears of Mickey and the Gang! I know taking Kye to CFA and getting him comfortable with the Cow for sure helped with other characters so it’s a great way to practice with her too!
This was our first attempt with the cow…she freaked. And what is awesome about having a second kid is that it didn’t phase me a bit. TONS of people looking at us and I said “Casey grab the camera!” hahaha By the end of our night there though we made a HUGE improvement. She stopped crying every time she saw the cow and, with G-Mama’s help, started saying “moo moo” to him whenever she saw him. By the time we left she was seeking out the cow so she could moo at him 😉 Def an improvement!!!!
We live in a small town where Zach’s been his whole life, Zach’s dad has been his whole life, and Zach’s grandfather has been practically his whole life. So everywhere we go people typically know the Parkers. Especially when I have Mrs. Charlotte with me, I’m used to being introduced to random people on the reg. At Chick-Fil-A Family Night though??? I am the one doing the introducing haha I guess CFA is the place of “my people” hahahaha I swear I saw like practically every mama I know while we were there! It was SO crazy crowded that some of my friends I could just wave to from afar!
Kye and Stevie!
Casey creating a barrier for Britt haha
She may have hated the cow but did fine with the princess 😉
Robyn was there taking pictures of the event and it was great to get to visit with her a bit too! I thought it was so funny how I guess Casey took this creeper shot of her??? Your welcome Robyn 😉
Got a crown so she’s a legit princess!
G-Mama looks happy surprised and Britt looks scared-bc-she-just-saw-the-cow surprised
They had several themed crafts and activities. Kye was SUPER serious about his treasure map making! He decorated that map forever and it was tough to peel him away.
Britt “walking the plank”
This little girl took a liking to Kye and helped him with his map. When it was time for us to go eat she offered to finish his map for him. Guess she was his “pirate wench” 😉
Casey is such the style trendsetter…
I don’t know why but when I look at this picture of Kye I feel like I can see a glimpse into the future of what he will look like as an adult. Maybe it’s the way his hair is or his facial expression? But I can just SEE grown-up Kye here can’t you???
It was another awesome time at CFA!!!
I heard they are going to be having some ice cream social nights this summer…um I cannot WAIT! If anyone wants to get together and go to a CFA fam night one Tues def let me know as we can always use some more cow practice and since they have a tasty grilled chicken sandwich with a wheat bun I don’t feel like it’s “cheating” 😉
