Hawaii
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Daniel was so excited! His family had been in Hawaii for a week. They were having a special family reunion vacation. His grandparents had planned this trip with his parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Today was the day when his grandparents would be receiving a special gift from all of them.
 
2     For the past week, Daniel and the rest of the group had enjoyed the great beaches. They had done water activities. They enjoyed the spectacular scenery that Hawaii has to offer. It was better than they could have imagined. Today, though, was his grandparents' wedding anniversary. The rest of the family had decided to surprise them with a tour of Kilauea as a present. This was something they had always wanted to do but had never had the chance.
 
3     The family gathered in the lobby of their Hilo, Hawaii, hotel. Then Daniel's grandparents came. They were told to close their eyes. A tour guide joined them.
 
4     "Aloha," said the tour guide. Aloha means "greetings" in Hawaii. "Surprise!" yelled everyone else. Daniel's grandparents opened their eyes. The tour guide explained that the family had purchased a present for them. They would all take a private volcano tour on an airplane. They would fly over the Kilauea volcano! Daniel's grandparents were thrilled. The whole family could go, so off they went!
 
5     Daniel knew that Hawaii was a hot spot. It had 82 volcanoes! The volcanoes had formed the Hawaiian Islands. The Big Island of Hawaii is made up of five shield volcanoes: Kilauea, Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, Hualalai, and Kohala.
