Snorkeling with Kids on Maui

April 26, 2013

I don’t know how I missed updating about this one.  I was going through our photos from our Maui trip and I found this dolphin picture. This wasn’t even one of those things they advertised that we were going to see on this snorkel trip we booked when we went to Maui but on the […]

Leodas Kitchen and Pie Shop (Lahaina, Maui)

March 11, 2013

Maybe this should be called the day I wanted pie so badly I talked up the petroglyphs behind the pie store to get it. (Thank goodness for these petroglyphs!) We passed Leoda’s on the way to Lahaina from Kihei and I saw people lined up outside as we whizzed by to another destination so I […]

Eating pupus with preschoolers in Maui

March 5, 2013

“Check out these pupus!” I told my husband. “They look pretty yummy and they’re so reasonable!” POOPOOS!  The duo cheered. Oh dear.  Not the kind of pupus I was talking about.

If you decide to ride the Sugarcane Train (Maui with kids)

February 20, 2013

*Apparently this Sugarcane train is now closed.  Thank you Rick for letting me know and if anyone hears otherwise, please message me too! We weren’t sure if we were going to do this one.  I couldn’t find a lot of information on it, and I wasn’t sure if it was a full length ride or […]

Kihei (Maui with kids)

February 15, 2013

I tend to book places when I get a good feeling about the place.  Kihei had a pretty name, it was close to the airport (our flight arrived at 11pm) and I managed to find a condo on the beach for a reasonable rate.   We like small hotels especially in Hawaii: the type that […]
