  1. My son has a nut allergy as well. We travel with a small rice cooker that allows us to make some meals while traveling. There is a lot more than rice you can make in a rice cooker.

  2. Are people giving hate fruit and veggie pouches? I think they’re wonderful. Kirkland makes some that are organic and a steal of a price. My son watches a little coco melon a day. Don’t be so hard on yourself, sometimes you just have to go with the flow.

  3. Can you please do a video on how you budget for vacation and do a recap of what you spent? I am planning a trip to Maui with my husband as a honeymoon 2.0 since we got married during COVID. We haven’t reached all of the financial goals that I would’ve liked to prior to planning a trip like this so I would love some guidance on how to create some really beautiful memories to be a part of the foundation of our marriage without being set back.

  4. Placing a target order before flying out so it was ready when you landed was pure genius! I am definitely stealing that idea for when we finally travel again. Waikaloa is gorgeous and I wanna take my family there someday but it probably won’t be for a while. Our first trip we plan to take will be to Maui since my sister is there 🙂 Glad you guys have a great family trip!

  5. No hate… you do what you have to do! And it sounds like you were very well prepared! Were you planning on weaning Peter or did he wean himself? My bb just turned one and I’m not ready! We are going to the beach next month and it’s our first time “traveling” w baby

  6. Why would people hate on peter eating pouches? Genuinely curious as my baby is 4 months and I am just starting to look into solids. I always thought they were a great option on the go or whatever…especially ones with just fruit and veggies.

  7. Glad you are enjoyed the trip!!! I went to Hawaii for my 1 year anniversary (the month before I got pregnant with my son) and I want to go back with my kids, but I just can imagine taking 2 kids to Hawaii (4 and 19 months 😭) so we will wait until their older.

    Also, I don't put my life out to the world so I don't get haters, but excuse my language F**k the haters. I'm not sure if you are on Tik Tok and Reels, but there is a trend about "we do not care". I'll make one for you….People: You shouldn't let your kids watch TV"….Me: "We do not care". lol.

    Yes, I won't ever do a lap child again and just paying for a seat for 2 reasons…its' safer (I learned this when after I traveled with my 2 year old, but we did take him as a lap child when he was 4 months) and #2 you can locked them down and they can't move, lol (we bought out carseat and he was in his carseat on the plane). My husband complained about dragging a car seat around but it made the trip better because he was used to sitting in a car seat.

  8. I've never wanted to go to the Big Island, but this vlog makes me want to go to that resort haha. That looks amazing!

  9. It’s Peter’s vacation too, so…..he should be able to watch more videos if he wants! 😂😂 Glad you had such a wonderful trip!! 🌴

  10. Such fun times! We are going next Spring to Maui! Also, loved your sunglasses, can you share the link to them? Thank you!

  11. I hope you don't get hate for using pouches during your vacation… My goodness people are judgmental 😂

  12. If you’ve gotten the covid vaccine , you should be stoked that Peter got the antibodies thru your BMILK!!!! 👍

  13. Oh my goodness who would give you hate for pouches?! They are my go to!! Also tv…it’s a life saver! I have a 6 year old and 1 year old and there is zero judgement coming from me. You do you!!

    Thank you for sharing your trip…I can’t wait to take the family to Hawaii one day 😊
