McDonald's

My kids love Tuesdays. After school, we head to the library to do our homework. Afterwards, we drop my oldest off at choir and then I head home with the other three kids. The last few weeks we've ate at home since last week was Valentine's Day and the week before we had tons of leftovers. Normally, we do head for McDonald's as a quick convenient meal/treat. They always get McNuggets in a Happy Meal. They're always more interested in the toy initially, but that ends up in the corner by the end of the night.

I love that McDonalds has revamped their Happy Meal. Their fries are a smaller portion and they've added a snack-size apple. These are different than the Apple Dippers; a smaller pack with no Carmel dipping sauce, but my kids have not seemed to mind.

I'm so glad they've made this change because for a while, we had been getting the apple dippers extra for dessert and most of the apples were left for me, which is better than fries, but I'd still rather have them eating the apples instead of licking the carmel out of the container.

Today, we'll head there for the first time in weeks. It's Fat Tuesday as my if I wasn't aware, my 6 yr old Alex came down the steps with his blanket stuffed in his belly and declared, "Happy Fat Tuesday!!".

We had our Packzi's already.

I've never heard of "fat Tuesday" but I read about it a lot on FB yesterday...hmmm!
Haven't been to Mc (except for a shake @ the drive-thru once) in a long time!
