About Me & My Family
I'm a mother
3 Kids 5-13 years old boys and girls

When we travel, good food and adventure always abound. Our family loves to push the limit of what we can do with children. Our mantra has always been - have kids, will travel. However, this doesn't mean I'm unlike most frantic moms before a trip. Wanting adventure and being a control freak can sometimes be a lethal combination.
Our Family's Travel Personality
adventurous, curious, independent, spontaneous
We Just Got Back From
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
Hawaii, Montana, Lake Tahoe
A Place We'd Love To Visit
New Zealand, Argentina, Brazil, Eastern Europe, Italy
Favorite Vacation Memory
Climbing Machu Picchu with a 4 month old infant in a slight and having all the locals stop us to ask what happened to his feet which were all bundled up. They just couldn't believe it wouldn't be bow legged.
Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Getting to the airport on our way to Scotland with my 15 month old and discovering that my husband's passport had expired. Instead of rebooking all of our flights, we decided that I would do the first leg of our journey on my own with baby. Unfortunately, we had not packed for me to be flying by myself. I could bearly walk to the runway with all my bags and a 15 month old who would get distracted by everything along the way. He then proceeded to sleep only 1 hour of the entire 11 hour journey (red-eye). It was pretty miserable.

Kid-friendly Tide Pools on Maui

Kids of all ages and adults alive find great fascination in discovering ocean critters in tide pools.  It's a fun and free activity that can easily fill a couple of hours.  Unlike what you might expect, Maui didn't have many tide pools for exploring, but had several for swimming in.


Honoapi’ilani Highway,
Kapalua, Hawaii

Shallow and deep tide pools teaming with fish make this a fun stop if you are driving the west loop trail on Maui. The natural swimming pools can be a lot fun with kids who are confident swimmers, but exercise caution. If the ocean is rough, it is best to skip it as it can be dangerous.


Hwy 30 just past mile marker 38
Kapalua, Hawaii

Besides being a good picnic spot and being able to see a natural blow hole, there are also lava formations and tide pools at Naklele Blow Hole.

"Great beach for kids"
I wish we had more time to enjoy Makena Beach.  It's a little away from all the resort crowd, bu if you're staying in Wailea or Kihei, you absolutely must spend a day at Makena Beach. The andy beach is lovely and the waters nice and calm. Some great snorkling to be enjoyed here especially at Turtle Town.  The beach has bathrooms and showers and a small parking lot.
