Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

We took the kids to the Riverdale RC Willey store to meet Spongebob. They also met Dora which wasn't nearly as exciting as Spongebob. Personally I think the whole thing was a joke but the kids loved it. We got there 20 minutes before it was suppose to start and were probably number 20 in line but it appears that everyone in front of us was holding a spot in line for an additional 50 people. As you can tell the kids were getting bored. They were letting you take your own pictures and they also had people taking pictures. Me being the considerate one and probably the only one there who was it appears had all my kids in one picture. Everyone in front of us had each of their dozen or so kids and themselves get their pictures done individually. Seriously they could have had more people go through if they had insisted on group pictures. After you moved on from pictures they gave you either a candy or a spongebob coloring book. My kids picked candy. Anyways they tell us there was free cookies and drinks on the other side of the store so while waiting for our free pictures we take the kids for the cookies and drinks. Let me tell you all those people in front of us treated this as a free for all. I think they loaded up their bags with 4-5 bottled waters on top of the ones they took to drink while eating the dozens of cookies they ate. No lie I heard one mom say to her kids fill up here for lunch kids. The way the whole thing was run was ridiculous. Oh well it was free so why should I complain!

We lost Nathan in the store. Course according to him it was my fault cause I didn't stay in the spot he had left me.
