Family Vacation at Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort

We spent 4th of July week at our favorite place ~ Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort in South Carolina.  We absolutely love Hilton Head Island, and of course anything Disney related is always fun.  My in-laws flew in from Texas, so we really enjoyed spending the week and catching up with them.  Most of the time we go out for dinner since vacation is all about relaxing and new experiences, but I decided I was going to make my Low Country Boil (click here for the recipe) for the 4th so we could avoid the crowds. We biked around and found this wonderful little seafood stand called Barnacle Bill's for our shrimp.  Barnacle Bill was so nice and he even let me take his picture. Wish we could have had those lobster tails for dinner, but the shrimp was definitely more afforable!

Barnacle Bill also had some nice tomatoes, so we grabbed a few of them for our salad.  They were so sweet and tasty! So our 4th of July dinner consisted of a Low Country Boil, Tossed Salad, rolls and my Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie for dessert.  See this post for the recipe - it's the bomb!  My daughter and father-in-law fought over the last piece - next year I will definitely have to make two.

For those of you that know about my Diet Coke addiction, this is my absolute favorite thing about vacationing at Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort.  I know it's sad, but it's true!!!  As soon as we get to the resort I buy us these refillable Disney mugs.  They cost about $15 each with tax, but I can fill it up from morning to night with as much Diet Coke as I can drink for our entire stay!  I am in Diet Coke heaven!! I love you Mickey!

One of our favorite places to dine outside in Hilton Head is Scott's Fish Market in Shelter Cove.  The view is so pretty and the food is wonderful.  My mother-in-law ordered this Mojito for me.  She actually said I had to drink one with her!  Is she the best mother-in-law or what!  Scott makes a mean mojito!

I ordered this Grilled Shrimp Salad for dinner and ate every last bite!

Another one of our favorite spots is this little dive called the Sea Shack.  This restaurant is really small inside, but definely big on taste!  Each day they offer different sides to go with your seafood choice and let me tell want to go on the day they have Sweet Potato Cornbread!  This stuff is amazing!!!  I was lucky enough to get the recipe and will be trying it at home soon, so stay tuned.

Madison's favorite breakfast was her Mickey Mouse waffle.  Yes, even teenagers love Mickey!

Well I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse of our family vacation and if you ever get the chance to stay at Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort, you should definitely go. 
Thank you Chere and Ron for a wonderful vacation!
