Holland “Kai” Carter is four years old, and is going to start preschool in the fall in Kapalua. Mom is Kimmy Carter, Activities Manager at the Hyatt Residence Club with Maui Concierge Services, and dad is Holland Carter, Tour Coordinator with Mary Charles & Associates. Kai loves to swim, play at the park, and ride his scooter. He also enjoys going with mom and dad to the bookstore and reading books.

Mom shares, “Kai’s first words were ‘I go!’ and ‘Oh Hi!’ which sums up our son’s energetic and outgoing personality. He enjoys meeting new friends, and has a fun sense of humor and an incredible imagination. Kai inspires me daily; his love and curiosity for the simple things helps remind me how blessed we truly are living on this beautiful island!”
