When Audrey, 4, was approached by Make-A-Wish® and asked that if she could have any wish, what would it be? Audrey, with her big blue eyes dreamed of even a bigger surprise. She wanted to see a volcano and cookie cutter sharks.
In early February, Audrey's wish came true as her and her family landed in Waikiki, Hawaii where they were able to enjoy a vacation free from worries.
The first few days were spent having fun in the sun and a special treat for Audrey was getting her ears pierced.
As part of her dream vacation, an early wake up was scheduled so they could take a flight to the Big Island. When on the Big Island the family saw Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots waterfall. Later the family went to Volcanoes National Park and walked on the Kilauea Ike Trail. Once on the trail they started to make the long journey down to where the actual crater of the volcano was. Later that day Audrey and her famly experienced hiking on the latest lava spill that covered the road.
In their remaining days in Hawaii Audrey had the opportunity to attend a Luau at Paradise Cove, visit the Dole Plantation and spent numerous other hours touring the island.
Tonya, Audrey's mother, said "We are so grateful for the wonderful vacation Make-A-Wish gave to Audrey and all of us. We had a fantastic time and memories will be forever ours."
