1. It was our favorite day of the whole summer: Cow Appreciation Day. Even the change in policy, from a full free meal to just a free entree didn't get us down. The kids got free meals. And we happily dressed as cows for our free salads. Last year we took the plunge and ordered Lee a full sized cow costume, which made things so much easier, not having to pin a bunch of spots on one person. I also cut all our spots and ears out of felt instead of construction paper, so now they are sitting in a bag just waiting for next year. No more cutting out spots for me! And the icing on the cake was having Apple Ben with us. He's always good for a laugh.
|I wanted to get a picture of the girls looking at me, but Bria loved the cow so much she couldn't stop looking at him.|
3. For your viewing pleasure, here is Cow Appreciation Day through the years:
2012: Lee and I were in Alaska for Joe and Claire's wedding, so those pictures live with Grammy.
2013: The year we won a ton of Chick-fil-a in the picture contest
4. Thanks to a brief bout of blueberry barf we missed the MOPS play date this week. But since everyone was recovered by Thursday, we did a make up day. The girls found a zip line at the park and a good time was had by all.
Catch you next week! Unless the heat causes us to wilt away.
