eat mor chikin...

Yesterday when Daddy came home and we checked the mail together, the Easter Bunny came! I LOVED getting a package from Daddy's fellow RUF campus minister's family at UVa that was filled with Jelly Belly jellybeans, an Easter Bunny PEZ dispenser & candy, and some GF playdough! (all gluten free!!) Thank you, Slate family! Mommy hasn't even had time to give a THOUGHT as to what kind of candy might be gluten free for Easter, but she & Daddy almost teared up when it came to our mailbox!

So after checking the mail, we were off for a quick family fun night at Chic-Fil-A. (where I can eat gluten free! yay!)

Everything was going GREAT & I was having a fantastic time...

...until I spotted HIM. See that cow over there? Yeah, him. I thought, What IS that thing?!? And what is he doing here in the restaurant??

And can you believe he even had the AUDACITY to try to TOUCH me!?!

You better believe I had my eyes on that thing for the rest of the meal as it pranced around the restaurant.

And then a funny thing happened.

I saw all the other boys and girls walking UP to the cow and giving out HUGS to that thing. And then something clicked in my brain. "Come here, cow!" I said.

High five! I did it! (whew!) And I did it again & again. And each time I did, it made the cow dance! :) It didn't take long before that cow was my buddy. And even though I was a little timid & skeptical at first...

it ended up being a great family outing. :)

  1. I had no idea CFA was gluten-free. Awesome! E loves it and has no idea what "the golden arches" even are...

  2. ASC- I should have clarified that we are ABLE to eat there gluten-free. We order a kid's meal with GRILLED chicken strips (not the regular fried ones) & a fruit cup. She can even have the fries because they're done in a separate container from the chicken. Yay!
