Secret spot

Aloha everyone! We are just returning from our Hawaiian vacation and I am still dreaming of Maui sunshine and surf. We had the most incredible visit to Kipahulu to stay with Jeff’s brother and lots of friends. Kipahulu is lush and idyllic and just a short drive to one of the guys’ favorite surf spots. Having a house to ourselves with an infant made for a stress free stay! We stopped at Whole Foods on the way to Kipahulu and were able to cook our meals at home, and drink our drinks by the pool.

Julian and I played with friends and napped at the beach while the guys surfed. We swam in the pool, hiked, and watched Jeff fish. Julian tried his first foods and has quite literally loved everything! We were up early enough to enjoy sunrises and late enough to see the stars. We even had the opportunity to take Julian to the landing where Jeff and I got engaged. I was overwhelmed with nostalgia. Many amazing things have happened to our little family since that day!

We capped off the trip with a few days in Wailea, because what trip is complete without a little room service? And Jeff took Jules while I got to enjoy a spa day at the Grand Wailea. It was heaven!

I’ve also had a lot of questions about flying with an infant and I have to say, it was a breeze! Much easier than I had anticipated. I feel like I could write a post just about traveling with an infant, but for now, I’ll just let you know the two things I feel helped us the most. Wearing Julian through the airport made for a happy baby! We didn’t even bring our stroller. Secondly, nursing during takeoff and landing prevented any ear pain. It really was that simple! I had some infant Tylenol in case he was really in pain, but I never needed it. On the plane he napped in my arms when he needed, and played happily when he was awake. I was amazed at how well behaved he was, and how much energy I wasted stressing about it!
