Beach Bums

We took a mini-vacation last weekend for Memorial Day. Myrtle Beach had a "Meet and Greet" with some of the people who play on the Disney shows, and since we have a Disney freak in the house, we decided we'd head down there, with 10,000 of our closest friends! The lines for autographs were outrageous. We did manage to get two, though. We got Freddie (Nathan Kress) from iCarly and Tiffany Thornton who plays on Sonny With A Chance. We were in line for about an hour and a half to meet Debby Ryan (from Suite Life on Deck), but then the security guard closed off the line. So, we didn't get her autograph, but we did manage to get a picture of her! The next day was spent at the hotel pool and the ocean. We never left the place. We had a late breakfast at the hotel and then ordered pizza from a place that delivers. It was nice to be able to relax for a change. Our hotel had about 8 pools, 12 hot tubs, and one really long lazy river. We stayed in that thing for about an hour and a half. It was Heavenly!! Monday we drove back home, but first we stopped at Broadway at the Beach. We found a HUGE candy store called It'Sugar. Maddy bought a gummy bear that was about 5 inches tall. She's still working on it! We spent way too much $ there, but it's not often I find those little pieces of Heaven also known as CHOCOLATE COVERED GUMMY BEARS!!! Needless to say, I loaded up! As we were leaving, Ryan noticed a Zhu Zhu pet store, so of course we had to stop. Maddy got her 8th Zhu Zhu pet and her official name is Carly, but Maddy named her iCarly Sam...I wonder why?! We had a great time! We were glad to get back home, but we're already talking about our next trip down. There's just one problem. I think I have "sandyphobia"! ; )
