only thing that would have made this day better...

...was a giant rainbow overhead!!!

Today was our second to last day of filming. No, we still aren't sure if we will resume filming later this month or in we are treating these last few days as our last with this cast and crew.

It has been an AMAZING journey. I can't believe how far the girls have come over the last 2 months. Today was one of those days where we were able to experience and really enjoy the friendships that we've made. One of the producers brought in ponies for all the kids today. What an awesome gesture!!

I would put this as the 3rd, maybe 2nd most excited they've ever been. Their faces when they saw the ponies for the first time was priceless. They could not believe their eyes. It was a ton of fun!

So behind the studio where our RVs had been, they set up the ponies. Everybody came out to watch.
Some of the actors soaking it up.
Alyssa looking pretty happy.
Katy waving to everybody.
Two of my favorite pics of the day.
I had to go to work so I missed out on the pinata. It sounded hilarious. They got a Dora the Explorer Pinata and the kids all took turns whacking away. So you can only imagine as they make progress and the legs start falling off. Well at the end, all that was left was her head. A gruesome but hilarious scene. Thankfully, none of the kids seemed to mind the Dora lynching...they just wanted the CANDY!!
There are so many great pictures from today but if I had to pick one, I'd go with this gem that Lisa took. Possibly another nomination for picture of the year??
So Saturday is our last day. The assistant director has asked if I would be in a scene as an extra so tomorrow I'll get to join the craziness...make it a family affair. Then we'll have a wrap party tomorrow evening with all the cast and crew. Should be a great time...but admittedly a little sad. This has ruled our lives over the last 2 months. You can't help but make some great friendships when you spend that much time with people.

What a great way to cap off a terrific 2 months!!! Did Lisa have anything to do with getting horses for the occasion? I'm anxious to hear about the final day. Love, Dad
