Yep that is what we did this past Saturday just not in that order. If you visited yesterday you may have gotten a good chuckle or maybe even a belly laugh from my post “Are We There Yet?” It is about our eventful trip to the promotional event featuring Burger King’s new chicken tenders and a private screening of the movie HOP.
My oldest son refused to wear the crown. There are times when he wants to be a kid and time when he would prefer to be a grownup. I’m sure in the back of his mind he was thinking “I don’t want mom to put a photo of me in a burger king crown on her blog.” After our family portrait we were allowed to order anything we wanted. I have to proudly say I did good trying to stay true to the Nutrisystem Plan as much as possible and order a grilled chicken sandwich (minus the bun) and apple fries. So I didn’t get to try the chicken tenders myself but not to worry I interviewed the world’s finest chicken tender connoisseur (that’s him on the right):
Buddy lives for chicken nuggets, or more like ketchup with a little chicken nugget thrown in for good measure. Honestly, (and sorry Burger King) he has never been a big fan of the BK chicken nuggets. His normal order consist of 12 chicken fries, and he would probably order 20 if he could. So I asked him how the new BK Chicken Tenders were? He said they were pretty good and MUCH better then the old ones. Out are the old crown shaped nuggets and in are the new BK Chicken Tenders. Despite the better tasting
nugget tender this chicken connoisseur still prefers the chicken fries over the chicken tenders. He likes the little kick that the chicken fries seem to have.
After our meal the children wanted to go to the playground area. I tried to tell the boys they really were too big to be playing in such an area, but I guess you are never to old to play! Or to smush your face up against the glass (or in this case plastic).
My nephew is not a fan of these playgrounds. I remember a couple years ago he had no desire to crawl up the one at Chuck E Cheese. The boys and Honey tried their best to convince him but he was adamant that he didn’t want too. I let the kids play a little and then pulled Honey aside and asked her to color with her nephew so he wouldn’t feel bad about not climbing up the playground. Like I said you are never to old to play, or to color!
Of course what would a lunch date be without a show of muchoism! Notice the lack of interest on the girls face. Really guys arm wrestling does nothing for us. Of course I hope the 13 year old beat the 5 year old. Or maybe he let the little guy win.
Upon leaving the restaurant to venture down to the movies each child received their own SWAG which was a box full of all the BK Hop toys, a iPhone chicken tender case (which I respectfully decline to use – sorry BK) and a $20 BK Crown card.
After our lunch as I mentioned our next stop was the movie theater down the street for a private screening for all of us that attended the BK promotion. The kids were super excited and after selecting their snacks patiently waited for the movie to begin.
The movie was cute and E.B (the bunny pictured here) was adorable I totally loved his accent which if I had to guess was somewhat
Australian (forgive me if I am wrong) I have been correct it is British (still love it either way). The movie comes with a moral lesson and had some funny parts and really appealed to the children. I recommend it even if you wait for it to come out on DVD.
In addition to our fun day I also got to meet a fellow South Flordia Blogger Bern from Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas. Despite the lack of adding my blog name to my name badge she recognized both me and the children. We both agreed that our next meet-up will have to be a little further North. All and all it was a fantastic time and I wanted to give a special thanks to Lauren for the invite!
