Eat Mor Chikin
C'mon, who doesn't love Chick-fil-A? "Eat Mor Chikin," you say? If it puts a smile like this on my kids, you've got yourself a deal!
Those nuggets? The waffle fries? Get out! And when I have more willpower, their grilled chicken sandwiches and wraps are super yummy. Get this, they now have real fruit squeezies and grilled nuggets. So, you really can feel good about taking your kids for fast food!
Now, I know I'm usually the one to roll out the banners for smaller, local mom and pop restaurants, but this is a chain I can get behind. The restaurant is always clean, and everyone who works there is incredibly friendly; they even come to your table to refill drinks and clear your trash. Maybe it's because it's a company that really cares for its employees - they're closed every Sunday so their employees can spend time with their families. I can't say I've never been disappointed on a Sunday afternoon craving that chicken, but it's a sacrifice for the greater good!
As if Chick-fil-A weren't already awesome, did you know they have special kids nights with free activities? All the locations do it differently; the one south of 101st on Memorial has theirs on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. Sometimes one of the Chick-fil-A cows is there handing out balloons! I had totally forgotten it was Tuesday, but decided to take the littles out for dinner the other night and was pleasantly surprised to see Miss Charlotte passing out flower pots and organizing the craft!
So, after we ate, Aidan headed over to start decorating his pot. There were loads of puffy stickers and paint. Look at the darling plates all set up like paint pallets! Seriously, this was not just a skimpy little craft - Miss Charlotte took a lot of time and put her heart into the activity. I just can't get over that they do this all for the community at no cost to us.
I just have to say again, if you're going to put these kinds of smiles on my kids faces, you've got my business!
After the pots were painted, Charlotte helped each child individually scoop potting soil inside, and plant their seeds. Aidan picked Cosmos.
Then she made sure to explain that when we got home we needed to water it and put it in a sunny place so it could grow. Aidan has already reminded me several times of these instructions, and how we can't forget to take care of those flowers!
Aaaaaannnnnnd...Alec just wanted to play. But that's okay - some kids like the crafts, some kids just want to play, and Chick-fil-A has a place for them all!
They even have hand sanitizer just outside of the play area!
And little cups of cheerios for the bitty-est of your little bees. So thoughtful.
Be sure to check out the bulletin board in your favorite Chick-fil-A to see when they hold their kids nights and don't miss it! The South Memorial store is having a super fun Mother's day craft on the 20th, and a special cookie party at the end of the month to unveil their newest dessert.
P.S. Did you know those clever cows have their own website? Gracious, they crack me up!
See you around town!
