Aloha! We’re the Tanner Family – Zach, Debbie, Dane, Rory, & Oscar the dog! We currently live in Oahu, Hawaii. Our weeks are filled with adventures in what we consider our backyard, this beautiful island. Everywhere we’ve lived, we’ve put together an “adventure list” full of scenic spots that we’d like to experience. This is where we share what we’ve done. We hope you’ll take a look around and see something you like!

Hi, I’m Zach Tanner.  I work as a dentist in the US Army and am currently in my second year of a postdoctoral residency program at Schofield Barracks on Oahu.  I enjoy work, going to the gym, spending time with my family, and being active in my Church.  We are lucky to have this time in Hawaii to appreciate so much natural beauty and to share so many wonderful experiences around the island. Favorite shave ice flavors: root beer and lilikoi.


Aloha, I’m Debbie Tanner! I’m a stay-at-home mom who loves all things creative: writing, photography, videography, crochet, art projects, and baking. I love the outdoors and especially enjoy our family adventures. On any given day, you can find me surfing, hiking, playing at the beach, or making family videos for our weekly vlog! Favorite shave ice flavors: lychee, lilikoi, guava, and pina colada.



Hi, I’m Dane Tanner! I’m a very independent 4-year-old who loves the kayak boat, playing outside, swimming, and throwing sand at the beach. I also enjoy picking up seaglass and acting out my favorite videos and songs. Favorite shave ice flavor: “purple.”



Aloha, I’m Rory Tanner! I’m a 2-year-old who loves to snuggle and be silly. I love playing with toy cars, dinosaurs, and hanging out with the fishy toys on the stairs at the pool. I love food and particularly enjoy frozen treats! Favorite shave ice flavor: “orange.”


Woof, I’m Oscar Wilde! I’m an 8-year-old Morkie (yorkshire terrier/maltese mix). I’ve been Debbie’s fur baby since I was just a 1-lb puppy! I love eating, even though I have a sensitive stomach, and like short walks. I also like to play fight and snuggle the daylights out of Zach. I am generally a good boy, but I do have a little sassy streak. Favorite shave ice flavor: whatever falls on the ground that I can lick up quickly before I get caught!
