thursday [7/7] was a high-energy day, to say the least. started off the morning first thing going jet-skiing with daddy! talk abut extremely fun! i had never driven a jet-ski before [and neither had he] and we both enjoyed speeding up + jumping over waves and getting some serious air! i got some pictures but they were on our underwater camera, so maybe those will come later when we finish the roll and get the pics developed!
after returning from jet-skiing, we [of course!] went out to the beach and had tons of fun catching some seriously huge waves on our wake boards. after soaking up some more sun, we all showered up + headed out to central myrtle beach so that [first] mama could enjoy her first ever helicopter ride with daddy!
leaving behind a gate reading "danger"... hmmm.
not that dk + i were worried or anything for their lives as they left us behind...
no worries though, we passed the time anxiously eating some icee popsicles,
and before we knew it [three minutes-ish later], they were back [alive!]!
wahooooo! once they were back safe + sound, we were off to broadway at the beach!
we had tons of fun here... so much fun stuff to look at/stores to shop through/pretty scenery! kinda like barefoot landing in north myrtle beach, but way more hip!
we enjoyed starting off at dk's favorite store... "IT'SUGAR"... where, well, everything was candy/sugar-related. what's not to love??
dk's pitch for ruth + drew:
made with 254,093 jelly belly jelly beans... and only $25,000! what a steal!
don't even bother asking, of course i didn't leave that store with at least one of those lunchboxes in hand! i got the one on the right (: thanks again, daddy!
+ i almost bought this bag just for you, micae - no reason, really (;
we strolled around for awhile longer, stopping for din at johnny rockets [mama's choice!]. the rest of the night, we enjoyed:
stopping for pictures in front of fountains for dk,
saying hello to lady liberty,
finding some bunny-related things for our anna,
dancing with the awesome $80 colored bouncing lights,
posing for our adoring fans,
getting an awesome viking balloon hat,
and, of course, posing with said hat in front of our favorite upside-down house: wonderworks!!
so scary. but so awesome! apparently, it's like a cooler, older-kid version of cosi - including an indoor ropes course and zip lines!! we [obviously] got there a little too late, but don't you worry - it's on our list of places to go on our next visit to myrtle beach (:
after ending our excessively humid day at this wonderful place, we headed home and promptly went to bed!
