Packing List for Hawaii

Aloha! A couple years back, we went on a family vacation to Hawaii! We opted out of a traditional Christmas this year and instead planned a family trip to the North Shore for the Pipe Masters! The kids were super excited. Jeff was beyond stoked to see some of his favorite pro surfers like John John Florence, Julian Wilson and of course, Kelly Slater. The first half of the trip we stayed in a Airbnb and the second half we stayed at the Turtle Bay Resort.  

I’m always interested to see what others pack for vacation and wanted to create a Hawaii packing list for you. Now, trying to pack light for a family of 6 on a 10 day trip seems laughable. But we did pretty good! Each of the kids brought a small carry on (Walker Goods) and a backpack. Jeff and I shared a carry- on and MZ Wallace bag, Ozzy ended up with her own giant suitcase, haha. I totally forgot what packing for a baby was like.
