Remember how I told you about my 11 year old being on an American Girl film set? Well I managed to get a picture of Esther while the crew was breaking for lunch. She is the one in the middle with her two friends from her homeschool co-op. The one on the left is holding a hot dog that she wasn’t allowed to eat. They were shooting a parade in old town Albuquerque. The consensus was that being in a movie is really really fun- for the first two hours. After that it becomes boring, shooting the same thing over and over again from different angles. As I was waiting for Esther to be done I got to see Jane Seymour walking around the set. I couldn’t get close but she looked great. Smaller than I thought, very petite. She was wearing a long, black skirt, black jacket, white ruffle shirt, and a black hat with a red flower. I was told she didn’t want her picture taken so I didn’t bother to try.
As fun as this was I don’t see a future for us being extra’s on film set. But it was fun to see how they do it up close. I liked how much detail they put into it. The popcorn and cotton candy for the parade were made on the set. They were even roasting green chilli on the side of the road.
As you are reading this I will be on my way to Phoenix to meet up with my sister and her family. So exited to see her again. I will see you back here next week hopefully with some enticing road trip pictures.
Have a wonderful weekend,
