I stayed at the same place in Hana in April w/my 1 year old. It was a fabulous trip and the place was awesome! Our only mishap was when we went to the beach and she wanted to eat the sand the whole time. The time change was a bit much but we were there a week and got settled pretty quickly! I recommend stopping in Paia at the Natural Store for food :) Very cute town. Chris and Jacques are great - you'll have a wonderful time!

Living in Alaska we have to take lots of plane trips to visit friends and family - can't exactly get in the car and drive, unless you want to take off a month just for travel! So far, our little dude has been on 18 planes (3 planes one way, 3 back for each trip) and he's only (almost) nine months old. I would say try to travel at night if possible, so that Miles will sleep through most of it. Bring a few toys to keep him busy. I hear the portable dvd players are a good distraction... but I haven't tried them. Give him something to suck on during take offs and landings (breast, bottle, pacifier). And the biggest thing for me, was to just keep organized. I kept a backpack for all of our personal items, and baby stuff, and organized it so that everything I needed frequently would be quickly at hand. Good luck! Your trip sounds like it will be awesome. Sending happy travel vibes your way. :)

I meant to say "bear with me" and not "bare with me", you wouldn't want to see me naked, I don't think! ;-)
