Kauai Recap

April 20 – 26, 2017 I want to share our memories from our first family trip on a plane! We went to the tropical island of Kauai in Hawaii to visit family and have a relaxing getaway. It was such a special and exciting trip! It was our son’s first time on an airplane, at 6 months old. During this trip, we announced our second pregnancy to the rest of the world! I’ll also share a few outfits that I wore and where you can shop for them.

A collage of Dylan’s first plane ride to Kauai and back to San Jose.

Dylan’s first plane ride was so smooth and easy! The pilot even asked if we wanted to take photos in the cock pit with him! That made the flight even more special. I absolutely love Alaska Airlines. We also scored a free seat for him, which made the flight very comfortable! The flight there took about 3.5 hours NON-STOP.
We took Hawaiian Airlines for the flight back, we also scored a free seat with them! The flight back also took about 3 hours, NON-STOP. Overall, it was so smooth and easy flying with Dylan for the first time ever! He slept most of the time. He is a happy and calm baby overall, especially when he has both mommy and daddy. TIP: bring something for baby to suck on due to ears getting plugged from elevation. I breastfed him to help make the flight more comfortable as needed.

Baby #2! Pregnancy Announcement! Finally, I couldn’t contain my excitement any longer!

Our family of three, soon to be four.

My love for you is deeper than the ocean.

We had the pleasure of staying with my husband, Steven’s cousin for a week. They were such great hosts and their home is beautiful and located in Princeville, just a couple minutes away from the beach. We enjoyed their company so much and Dylan had a blast hanging out with his second cousin, Sienna who is 2 months older than him.

St. Regis I highly recommend this hotel! The views are absolutely breath-taking and the hotel is so beautiful!!!!

The Bistro and Palate Wine Bar Owned by my husband’s cousin Mary and her husband Matt. These two places are hands down the best places to eat, drink, and hangout at in Princeville -and no I’m not being bias 😛 see for yourself!
…and of course, get yourself some shaved ice EVERYDAY! at Kauai’s Best Shaved Ice stand.(Yelp)
