From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors' quest. A born navigator, Moana sets sail from the ancient South Pacific islands of Oceania in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.

Nature hike with kids-Getting outdoors and enjoying the world we live in.

I know spending time outdoors is so important. Especially for children. Yet despite that awareness, it’s still sometimes hard for me to make it happen.
