The big plush cow was ready!
Once again, ChickfilA Sudley Manor threw an awesome event! I don't know if it was because there was no school for Prince William County that day due to snow or what, but there were a TON of people there! The restaurant was standing room only once we got there (shortly after the event started) and didn't seem to die down until the event was about over.
The girls got all dressed up in fancy "Easter dresses" as Sweet Girl called them. They looked precious! Daddy and I were pirates. I just happen to have a girl pirate shirt and necklace on hand and hoop earrings and an awesome scarf to tie it all together! Daddy had a shirt with skulls all over and a bandana on his head.
The event was a bit different from the last Princess and Pirate Night they had. I'm finding that Sweet Girl likes and expects things to run the same each time we go to an event. I don't like change much myself, but it's good for both of us to be open to things not being the same all of the time.
When we walked in, we found one half of the restaurant transformed into a princess and pirate fun zone. There were cut outs where children could get their pictures taken and look like a pirate or a princess riding in a carriage. There was also a station where children could get tatoos and the princesses could get their nails painted. The pirate side had a pin the "X" or "gold coin" on the map and a pirate hat making station. The princess side had a pin the "jewel" on the necklace and a tiara making station. Those girls at the tiara station were serious workers and some sat there and worked close to ten minutes on them! Of course, Pirate Cow and Princess cow also made appearances.
The playroom window decorated for the event.
Since there were no seats available, we started off with making tiaras. The girls liked playing the princess game and picking out prizes. We tried the playroom, but it was a bit loud and crazy for us. Next, Sweet Girl got her nails painted a sparkly blue. We let Love Bug get her first tatoo (we don't feel she's old enough for nail polish).
Sweet Girl said that since she had a tiara, she was making this one for Shaba Girl. <3
Sweet Girl was almost right on! She was even blindfolded.

Love Bug loved those jewel stickers for her tiara!
Love Bug's turn minus the blindfold.
Love Bug getting her first tatoo--which I later found out glowed in the dark! Saw it when I put her to bed.
Sweet Girl was in the middle of getting her picture taken in the pirate cut out when the Princess Cow came out. She screamed this scream that got everyone looking and went to walk forward while still holding the cut out. She took off the cut out and headed straight toward the cow. Once everyone realized it was a happy scream, they resumed what they were doing. That girl has a thing for the cows--though she reminds ME that it's not real and a person is inside. :)
Sweet Girl was one of the first children to get to Princess Cow.
We were so thankful when a table finally opened up because it was getting late and we were about to get our food to go. Pirate Cow came out and the girls enjoyed seeing him. Sweet Girl was interested in his inflatable sword. Love Bug is warming up to the cows and even posed with them this time! The girls also got to play the pirate game after dinner and pick prizes.
Pirate Cow! Notice the goatee?

Both girls got pirate and princess prizes!
The girls were so well behaved and we had a great night. Daddy was tired (still kind of feeling sick), but he had fun, too. It was nice to spend the time together as a family.
Everyone at ChickfilA Sudley Manor was (is!) just great! From the employees dressed as princesses and Sam the Pirate to Miss Whitney (that's what we call her) and everyone behind the counter and who cleans up--we were so thankful for their friendly service!
