The honeymoon phase is over. Well, maybe not entirely but this trip you will now bring along your bundle of joy (or joys) that you have created out of the love you have for each other. Keiki is the Hawaiian word for child and is interpreted as “little one”. Yes these little ones can bring us a joy and happiness that we have never experienced otherwise. They teach us things about our character that we didn’t even know. They challenge us in new ways and bring out our biggest fears, one being traveling with keiki!
This blog is written by a mother and father of two, ages 4 and 5, both teachers with over of 12 years of experience each who like to be prepared and have a plan. I have lived on the island of Kauai since 2002 and my husband is from here. We frequently travel back to the mainland to visit my 5 brothers and sisters. Upon returning from our latest trip in which we visited 4 different states, we realized that we were craving information on what to do with our keiki in these areas. We wanted up to date information from the inside perspective, written by a family that actually experienced it. We wanted suggestions on where to go, where to eat, and what to bring. We wanted to learn about the community where we were.
Kauaiwithkeiki.com was created as a resource for visitors to Kauai who are bringing children, given from a L.O.C.A.L perspective, LOCAL meaning Loving Our Community And Lifestyle. We invite you to share in our journey. Here are the things we do with our Keiki and the places we love to go over and over again. There are play and place based opportunities for learning everywhere. Here are low cost and at leisure options for play and exploration on Kauai.
