A few weeks ago, I saw on Facebook that Chick Fil A, was a doing a mother/son date "knight". So, I signed Henry and I myself up. He told everyone at school, how excited he was to go and that he was excited it was just, "us". No, Mare Bear monster running around was something he was looking forward too,.he told me that, in the car ride on the way to dinner.
It was really cute. They had a little section of the restaurant blocked off for the dates. They had a cute balloon arch and all the table had tablecloths and a little burlap runner. They had these coat of arms to color at the table and he loved it. He of course drew all the planets on our coat of arms.
After we decided what we were going to eat, someone came and took our order. We talked about the planets and how his day went at school. They also had these conversation pieces at the table, but if you know Henry, making conversation is the last thing we need tips on.
Food comes and well my date had to use the bathroom. I kind of thought he was talking to another date he was gone so long, but again if you know Henry, he always has to use the bathroom at the most random times. So, I waited and waited and he finally returned, ready to eat and see what we were going to have for dessert.
He ordered the small cone, and got me an ice cream sundae. Sweet kid! Chick Fil A also gave all the kids that little cow and a little bag full of candies. Now, that he was jacked up on all the sweets it was time for the best part.
He ran off some energy and it was time to go home. He of course asked that I take a picture of his finished coat of arms. Full moon, Earth, Pluto, stars and asteroids of course!
They also had a photographer there, with props and the cow, but Henry wanted nothing to do with any of that. He was too busy coloring and enjoying the date.
It was a great night with just my Bugga and he even gave me a kiss when our date was over. It will be a "knight" I won't forget, and I hope he loved spending it with me as much as I did with him.
Thanks, Chick Fil A for our special "knight" out!
