Preston sure has a great girlfriend. Umm if I can find someone to bring me Mickey Waffles in the morning I am not letting go of that person, just sayin'.

Ahhhsdlkjfhksd I just love how they play parks music and have the Mickey waffles and bars and rice krispies and that awesome sign with all the mileage... Like I knew that obviously being a Disney Resort it would be Disneyfied but that is just TOO PERFECT.

HAHA I love your Princess move. Off the couch boys, let's go.

Those Mickey Waffles look amazing! Good luck with school - I have to admit, I don't miss being in university/college, but every now and then, I have a twinge of wanting to go back.

Just joining in! It sounds like a WONDERFUL trip so far! And random, but I just gave birth to my daughter last week, and have been watching a lot of Boy Meets World reruns while I feed her!

I'm loving your TR and all the pictures. BTW, the best sweet potato fries I've ever had were on HHI at a resturaunt called Roastfish and Cornbread. So you just have to go back to try them.

Oh HHI, how I adore thee. I love to read HHI trip reports because that place just makes me feel so relaxed and happy. Isn't that little gift shop great? We went in every day to answer the trivia question. I hope you got to do Goofy Bingo while you were there - they give you candy for answering trivia questions. I cleaned up

Oh my gosh...I need to stay at Hilton Head one day! It is just too perfect! I love all the touches. I mean, they are expected because it's Disney, but still! That DVC sign is my fav! I absolutely love it.

That gift shop looks adorable too. I would be so excited to not technically be in WDW, but still be able to get so much cute Disney stuff. Oh man, I am loving HH more and more!!

Yay for the beach too!! My boyfriend is always talking about how we'll have to do some beach trips in between WDW trips and now I know what places I'll be pushing for!! WOOOO Hilton Head!

Oh, and Jess, have you ever wondered what the music was like back in EPCOT Center's early days? Then go to this site: http://www.mousevinyl.com/content/of...eyland-records

There, you can virtually listen to a record known as "The Official Album of EPCOT Center", featuring a bunch of old EPCOT songs, like:

The theme to the old 3D show "Magic Journeys"
"Energy (You Make the World Go Round)" from the original Universe of Energy
"One Little Spark" from the original Journey Into Imagination (which I really want to come back and get rid of dumb ol Dr. Channing)
"It's Fun to Be Free" from World of Motion, which got replaced by Test Track
and a medley of songs from "Kitchen Kabaret", including that classic "Veggie Veggie Fruit Fruit".
You definitely have to!

I have all of those songs on my iPod!

The sign that tells you how far the DVC resorts are from HHI is awesome! I love it.

All of the smoothies sound delicious! NOMS.
Me too. That seriously made me SO happy. It made me a million more times excited for the trip when I found out they had those there!

Isn't it perfect!? I love that thing.

They were REALLY yummy!

No prob!!!!!
Aww thanks girl!
Oh trust me, I know. Double majoring could potentially kill me.
Haha I know, I have a HUGE list but I split it up so I could eventually get them all. I hope my next order comes relatively soon!

Aww awesome! I will try and get as much posted as possible before that time. I have lots of pictures coming your way! And hmm... I honestly can't remember. I feel like there could have been, but it was a limited selection. I did love that gift shop though!

Have you talked him into any trips yet?



Which is all a girl truly needs to be happy!

Those smoothies look sooooo good!! I am curious about the Cookie Monster one too!?

By the way, where did you get the shirt in your first pic?
It super cute!!
I agree! They really made my day perfect!

I know! And yeah, I've talked him into them... it's the issue of money. So it'll probably be a while until we go on one.

Yeah I really should have gotten that flavor!

Which shirt? The Minnie Mouse shirt? It's from the Disney Store

LOL why thanks. I am the princess, they know it.

Relaxing is the perfect word to describe that place. I love it. I could not stay away from that gift shop, I just loved it so much! We didn't get to do the bingo, sadly! That's so fun!

Just being close to a Disney gift shop makes me happy. It really felt like we were in WDW when I was in there!

You should definitely think of looking here! It was a great place to go if I couldn't go to WDW!

Welcome back!
Hahaha I know! He just likes to look at the video game section and I like to look at the clothes.
Hahaha aww that's cute. Don't worry, I definitely am going to hold onto him for a long time. He's a good boy.

Update #5: Beach Day!
August 18th, 2012

With smoothies in hand we went right down to the beach. Yay! We went in a little to the right and put down our towels. We laid in the sun until Mom and Dad arrived to meet us! They decided to rent some beach chairs.

One thing you will learn about Hilton Head is that the tides are ALWAYS different. Today they were exceptionally low.



Preston and I went swimming and the water was really warm. I was so surprised because I'm used to our cold lake at home!

However, we were swimming for a little bit and then I got this SUPER sharp pain in my leg! I didn’t even see it, but I ended up getting stung by a jelly fish. The sting was on my left leg, under my knee, and to the right. It hurt really bad, so we got out of the water a little after that. It stung for a while but thankfully the pain subsided not too long after.

Then Preston and I decided to take a walk. We just kept walking and walking and walking really far down. Then we decided to turn around and swim our way back. However, while we were swimming I stepped on something! In my mind it felt like the flap of a sting ray, but I have no idea what I stepped on. I just jumped on Preston, freaked out a little bit, and we decided to walk in more shallow water. It was scary because the water wasn’t clear enough to see down to the bottom, so who knows what the heck was down there!

We then were walking and we saw these little kids with sand dollars. We decided to find some, too! They were everywhere! I picked up about 8 of them. They were buried in the sand when you are in the ocean. Anytime you think you're stepping on a rock, it's really a sand dollar!

Then we found this really cool looking tide pool and we pretty much just played in the sand. I made this little mickey head sand sculpture. Sadly my phone and camera were so far away so I couldn't take a picture. ): Then we got up and walked back to where my parents were.

We were getting hungry at this point. Since everyone already ate, Preston and I went up to get some food!



We ordered and waited for our meals. The CM cooking our burgers was like “you might want to go outside! The burgers aren’t going to be done yet.” I didn’t understand why because we were perfectly content with standing in there, but whatever. So I asked him how long it would be and he said “well, unless you want burgers with pink in the middle I would suggest going out there to wait!!” Okay, sassy.

I don’t know what his problem was, so we went outside and waited. Thankfully they were playing the Beach Boys, the “Sounds of Summer” album that I absolutely love, so I was happy. Winning soundtracks today, Hilton Head. You rock!

Preston went to go get our food. We both got cheeseburgers, he got onion rings, and I got French fries. Everything was REALLY good. My only thing was that they used HUGE rolls, so I ended up eating only half of the sandwich with the roll and then just cutting up the meat of the second half of the burger. Also, the fries at the HHI quick services are INCREDIBLE!





These photos are not their best because I forgot to take food pictures until we started eating our food! I'm so ashamed. We tried to make them look semi decent1 They're just missing a few bites.

I LOVE THESE CUPS! They make me feel right at home.



Once we finished, we decided to go back down to the beach. Mom, Jon, Preston and I decided to take another walk on the beach. On our walk, we saw this guy who was fishing and he had something BIG on his line! So we decided to stop and watch.

He was putting up a fight for about 20 minutes! We really wanted to see what the heck he caught!

It ended up being a HUGE stingray!







There was literally a crowd of people who were watching the whole thing! It was crazy! The sting ray swallowed the hook, so I would imagine that hurt pretty bad.

Once the sting ray was set free back into the ocean, Jon, Preston, and I walked back to our spot. Mom chatted with the fisherman’s wife for a little while. Once she got back, we decided to go back to the room. But not without taking a few pictures!

Me and Preston!



Family (:



Scenery:







We drove back and took showers. I got some shampoo in my eye because I’m five years old. But it was SO PAINFUL. It was worse than the jellyfish sting! I was having quite a day.

Everyone else finished taking showers and getting ready, I typed up some TR notes, and then we decided where to go to dinner!

We picked San Miguel’s which was a Mexican restaurant. We walked there and I was in PICTURE TAKING MODE!

Mother and me!



FART SHOES! Thanks Preston. Capturing us at our finest.



Family picture!



There we are!



OH BOY first frumpy deer face picture of the trip! If you are new to my trip reports, I better give a little explanation of what the deer face is. And what a "frump" is for that matter!



The easiest way for me to explain it is by posting Kristen and my definition:

Quote:
Originally Posted by Disneyfreak508

Or it can refer to someone who gets a little too excited over certain Disney foods or attractions. Essentially, a frump is someone who fully embraces their quirkiness, always finds something to laugh about, and enjoys life in a way that's infectious.

The deer face is an essential part of the frump lifestyle. It is a face that one makes when confronted with really delicious food, the prospect of a future Disney trip, or really any frumpy circumstance. It reminds us of a deer in headlights, and that's how it got its name. You more than likely make this face all of the time and you don't even know it! It's a beautiful thing, really.
Frumps, Deer Faces, and Fart Shoes are recurring jokes in my trip report. So if you're new and you have any comments, concerns, or questions, just let me know! We're just a big bunch of crazy people over here!

Anyways.... back to the photo shoot.





VERY attractive deer.



A picture of the tree!



They have hammocks here!



Being cute and stuff. (:

Ugghhh stupid money...or lack of. Always trying to ruin potential Disney trips. Boo Hiss!

Ahhhh it looks so pretty at the beach there!
A little creepy with all the stingrays and jellyfish but still sooo pretty!!!

It's so cute how your mum is always making friends with everyone!

Gahhh I ALWAYS get shampoo in my eyes. It's ridiculous! They need to make 'no more tears' shampoo for adults because for some reason keeping that stuff out of my eyes is a challenge at the best of times. And it BURNS!!!

You and Preston are so cute! You got some great photos!
I love the hand holding walking away one- dorm room wall collage worthy I would even say...

So when you said that you had been stung by a jellyfish, the first thing I thought of was that Friends episode where they're in Montauk and Monica get stung. But I'm glad that your sting wasn't THAT bad!

At least for me, once I have one clumsy thing happen, that's just how the rest of my day is going to go.

Booooooo for sassy CMs! But at least the food was yummy!

I'm sure they hear this a lot, but your dad and brother look so much alike! They're even making the same face in both of the family pictures!
