    Hi! This is the photography and lifestyle blog of Sheena Bean of Photography In the Light. I am a lifestyle photographer based in Kauai, Hawaii. I moved here with my family in January of 2015. My husband is the youth pastor at Lihue Missionary Church and we are raising three little world changers, Noakea, Banyan, and Avenlea Wren. This is His story, our story, and little snippets of life on a 562 square mile rock in the middle of the Pacific.

The Bean Family Chronicles {A Visit to Port Discover, or How to Make Three Kids Insanely Happy}

We live in a small town.  If you have ever been to Elizabeth City, you don’t need me to expound on that.  It’s the truth.  Although there are things I absolutely love

about small town living, there are also things that I really miss.  One of those things is the plethora of activities for kids you find in a big city.  Thankfully,

E-CIty does have one place that’s guaranteed to make kids of all ages have a great time, it’s called Port Discover.

If you haven’t been to PD lately, or haven’t been at all, you are missing out.  This little hidden gem is a fantastic place to spend a couple hours and, best of all ,it’s FREE!!!

Yep, that’s right, FREE!!  They do accept donations, and I think you will feel great donating to them after you see how much thought and creativity goes into this

awesome place to visit.  We hadn’t been for a couple years and I was blown away with how much it had changed and how much the kids

enjoyed themselves.  All three of them (ages 17 mos to 7 yrs) had nonstop fun and didn’t want to leave.  We will be back again soon for sure!

The “dinosaur,” as Banyan calls it, is what drew us in before even opening the door.  Every time we

walk downtown we have to stop to pay a visit to this little reptile.

Banyan loved watching the docent feed the fish!

The Flight Simulator.  Noa was OBSESSED.  He would have stayed there the whole time.

However, in this house, we share, so he left the simulator and played in the air control tower instead.  So cool!!!

Avenlea pretty much just wandered around making messes and checking stuff out.  The treadmill made a good place to lay around.

Noa and I couldn’t get enough of the insect specimens.  I’d love to have some for our home.
