Traveling – Carmel for Labor Day Weekend

We considered taking a babymoon during this pregnancy and decided against it because I would probably feel more uncomfortable on a plane and sleeping in a different bed at this stage than it would be to stay at home. This past Labor Day weekend offered an opportunity to do a short getaway to Carmel. It […]

Memorial Day Weekend 2016 – South Lake Tahoe

We spent Memorial Day weekend in South Lake Tahoe with a group of friends in an AirBnB with a pool table, fooseball table, jacuzzi, and a backyard grill. After braving 7 hours of traffic with dog and baby in tow, we got to the house at around 9PM. Lake Tahoe’s water is always cold as […]

Portland 2016 Recap Part 2 – All the vlogs

The last post would be too long if I put in all the video blogs so here’s a recap of Portland in video form. Enjoy!

Maui 2016 – Road to Hana, Famous Banana Bread, Black Sand Beach, Ae’s Thai Kitchen

Our final full day in Maui was spent doing an impromptu drive on the Road to Hana. We originally didn’t plan on going here because the windy road did not seem baby-friendly. Our Haiku AirBnB was actually on the Hana Highway so we decided to just drive along and see the first few stops then […]

Maui 2016 – Egg Fruit, Mama’s Fish House Beach, Old Lahaina Luau

  Another chill day in Maui. We took our sweet time leaving the apartment on this day because we were going to a luau at night that would end at 8:30PM and was an hour drive away. Not late for some but definitely late in baby time. I had every intention of letting Little Bear […]

Maui 2016 – Maui Swap Meet, Kihei Caffe, Baldwin Beach

Not much to write about for this day in Maui. We had macadamia nut and banana pancakes and it was glorious. Followed by more beach time! For a video version of this post, watch this Youtube vlog. We started the day at the Maui Swap Meet which is like a big farmer’s market. I didn’t […]

Maui 2016 – Iao Valley State Park, Baby Beach, and Ululani’s Shave Ice

On this day, we hiked, or what can only be considered a short leisure walk, in Iao Valley State Park to see The Needle at the top. For a video version of this post, watch this Youtube vlog. There it is. A little underwhelming but it was still a nice time outside with the little […]

Maui 2016 – Lunch at Mama’s Fish House and AirBnB in Haiku-Pauwela

Day 4 in Maui is somewhat chill. We switched to another AirBnB in Haiku-Pauwela. If we were stuck doing local things because we had a baby, we figured moving apartments would help us explore a new neighborhood. Before moving, we had lunch at a very popular restaurant called Mama’s Fish House. For a video version […]

Maui 2016 – Baby Goes to the Beach and Ali’i Lavender Farm Tour

Day 2 in Maui, Colin takes his daily dip in the ocean and this time it’s too cold. We take sun protection seriously here. OOTD: Hat from iPlay Sunglasses from Target (the girl’s section because it was the last pair left 😉 Long sleeve rash guard from iPlay Board shorts that are as long as […]

Maui 2016 – O’o Farms Tour and Maui Winery

Our first activity in Maui was a farm tour at O’o Farms, the dedicated farm for the popular restaurant Pacific’O. The farm is set in the picturesque mountainside. They practice sustainable and organic farming methods including maintaining a balance of flora that attracts predatory bugs to feed on insects that could harm the crop. They […]
