Spring has made its way to Hawaii yet again, which means flowers take on an even sweeter fragrance and days stretch into later (and more golden) sunsets. In the season of Easter, children’s imaginations are colored with bunnies and baskets filled to the brim with egg-erific treats. They’re ready to find that golden egg!
