Tropical Farms Macadamia Nut Farm and Ali’i Tour is a Local Gem

Calling all new parents! Did you know that babies typically will get their first tooth anywhere between 4 months to even after their first birthday?

Leeward Discovery Fair – Free Fun for the Entire Family

One of the great things about living in Hawai’i is that many of my favorite activities are FREE! If it were just me I could hike and go to the beach everyday. However, I have two little kids who are into so many different things and I try to find events and activities that provide wonderful learning opportunities. Things can
