When I was contacted 2 months ago about doing some inflatables for Chick-fil-a's 1st annual Helicopter Egg Drop, I told Stacy that even if we didn't get the job that I Really Really wanted to go. Chick-fil-a actually partnered with a local church who already has a relationship with another inflatable company, so we didn't get the job, but we did go on Saturday. We got there at 1:15, the gates didn't open until 2, and there was already a line. I saw Ashley who is the Chick-fil-a marketing director for our local store. She stopped to tell me that not only did 2,000 pre-register, but they were expecting an additional 3,000 people. She said "Next year, we'll not only use this company's stuff, but we'll get ALL of your's too!" 2 1/2 inflatables was not nearly enough for 5,000 people. That place was packed! We waited for 45 minutes to get in the gate and MIcah and Patton were both very well behaved during the wait.
Once we got in we were in awe of all of the eggs. There were over 30,000 eggs! Micah slid down the slide a couple of times.
We walked around and ended up bumping into several friends, including Micah's friend Hailey. I just had to take a pic. This Hailey is such a sweet girl.
We headed to the bleachers to wait patiently for the helicopter.
It finally came. The actual dropping of the eggs was SO neat!
When all of the eggs/ parachuting cows had landed safely they sent us to the different fields. I went with Micah, and Stacy went with Patton. Again. Micah did a great job during the hunt. He was so quick and picked up the eggs so stinking fast. We all had a great time. It was a fun fun day!
