It’s true. I have been called a “shave ice snob.” But I don’t apologize for trying to find the best shave ice in Kauai! And my kids definitely don’t complain helping me “research”!

I promised my family shave ice every day of our trip and we tasted this Hawaiian treat all over Kauai from Hanalei to Kapaa to Poipu!

When to Take a Babymoon

So, if you are a wanderlusting mama-to-be, you might be wondering when you should take your babymoon. The fact is, you can turn any vacation while pregnant into your babymoon. In fact, you can take several babymoons, if you like.

The main point of a babymoon is to enjoy one last vacation before adding another member to your family. It’s a great time to take some time to focus on your relationship while celebrating the new life you are bringing into this world. Plus, it’s an excuse to take a (probably) much-needed vacation!

I was just looking over my blog and realized I haven’t done a Kauai family travel guide! I’ve visited Kauai approximately 30 times since I was 10 years old. My grandma used to live part-time on Kauai when I was growing up.

My mom has been living on Kauai for the past 10 years. She’s a Kauai wedding officiant and knows a lot of the best Kauai beaches for families and things to do on Kauai with kids.

So, I conferred with her to make sure all my info was up to date and she added in some unique things to do on Kauai.

Researching Best Place to Stay in Waikiki for Families

Family Travel with Little Kids

As 2017 is coming to a close, I’ve started to look back on this year. That’s what people do this time of year, right? We spent our first full year at our new home and have established great friendships with many of our neighbors. My oldest started preschool this fall. My youngest transitioned from a newborn to a young toddler. But what stands out the most in 2017 involves our family travel.

What is Warehouse 3540?

Located in Lawai on the island of Kauai, Warehouse 3540 features trendy shops, food trucks, and shave ice. As the name implies, it’s located in a warehouse and has a bit of a Portland hipster vibe.

Had my Mom (who lives on Kauai) not told me about it, I wouldn’t have even known to stop. If you’re looking for things to do in Kauai, Warehouse 3540 is the place to be!

“Are we going to ride the Kilohana Plantation Railway train today?” This is a question my 3.5-year-old has asked me nearly every day for the past year.

My Mom lives on Kauai and took my oldest there for a special trip after my youngest was born. They rode on the train several times during the trip and it was the ultimate experience for him.
