Coffee with Cops

The other day we went to our second McDonalds event.  We decided to venture to a location close to where my brother lives in Dallas because we thought it would be fun to see a new [to us] McDonald’s. This latest event is called Coffee with Cops.

What is Coffee with Cops?

Coffee with Cops is a partnership between the Dallas Police Department and McDonald’s of North Texas to boost officer and community relations by providing residents with the opportunity to interact with Police Officers working in their neighborhood.The partnership began in 2013 and has continued to evolve over the past seven years. Officers of all levels – including Sergeants, Deputy Chiefs and Neighborhood Patrol Officers – will sit down with residents to answer questions, discuss public safety and build relationships with those they serve.

Community is key

It was so fun to see so many officers from all different levels talking to all different walks of life. All of the officers were so kind to answer all kinds of questions and I mean they took a picture with this crazy fool. Plus, who doesn’t love McDonald’s breakfast on a Saturday.

Tripp seriously had so much fun and tt was the icing on the cake when we arrived and saw that this McDonald’s had a playground.  Coffee with Cops was so refreshing and fun.  It was so cool to hear community updates and see hear the behind the scenes stories!

Stay tuned to see what McDonald’s events I end up at next.

McDonald’s Lunch Bunch

I am so excited to be partnering with McDonald’s and to get the opportunity to attend some of the wonderful community events that they put together.

Last week my family headed to McDonald’s for our first Lunch Bunch event! We had such a fabulous time with the staff and other families! Check out what Lunch Bunch is all about below!

What is McDonald’s Lunch Bunch?

Lunch Bunch is a time where you can gather with friends and network of parents to learn more about McDonald’s and its commitment to education, food and giving back in local communities. These events happen quarterly!

The fun family vibes filled the air and we loved getting to chat with the other families there and the staff was phenomenal.

Fun for the kids

Lunch Bunch isn’t just for parents. Tripp had so much fun with crafts, balloons and faceprinting. Of course he loved getting to munch on food and play in the play area. McDonald’s is just the perfect family lunch environment.

We have a bit of a shark obsession if you can’t tell! The face painter was SO amazing with Tripp he wasn’t sure how he felt about it but wanted to do it [toddler life right?]. After a few tears and the artist demonstrating the brush and letting him pick colors she created the masterpiece on his face. I was blown away by her patience, understanding and kindness towards us.

Don’t you worry Annabelle didn’t get left out… She enjoyed a few little French fries as a treat for behaving so well!

We had a blast getting to celebrate teachers, spend time with our family, and munch on yummy food. Thank you so much to McDonalds for having us and we can’t wait for the next event.

I will be at several McDonald’s events this year so make sure to follow me on Instagram so you know when you can join! Next up, I will be in Dallas for Coffee with Cops! Stay tuned for a recap!
