We're famous!**pictures added**

We went to the Days of 47 float preview yesterday afternoon. As we were walking around looking at the fun floats, I noticed a photographer trying to take a picture of the one we were looking at. I quickly tried to get out of his way. He later came over and talked to us. He told us he'd like to follow us around to try to capture Ellie's expressive face as she ran all over the Expo Center discovering the darling floats. He followed us for a good portion of the time we were there. He said he was getting a little frustrated because every time he had a good shot lined up someone would walk in front of him and he'd miss Ellie's expression.

We were in the Deseret News this morning (page B6, the title of the article is Pioneer Day activities in Utah)! Here is a link to the story if you don't get the paper:


We're close to the top of the page under the tab that says "story photo".

I'm not really thrilled with how I look in the photo, but at least Jason and Ellie are cute!
Not liking the marching band.

Sweet cousin Hailey.

Ellie and Hailey

Ellie thought this float was so funny. She "requested" that Jason point at the monkey reading a book with her.
This is the photographer that followed us around. He had just missed another good shot.

"Kissing Cousins"


  1. How fun! Of course someone would want to follow Ellie around and take her picture. That's a no brainer!

  2. How fun for you guys! Besides all the fame, that just looks like a fun day out!

  3. How cute. I am not surprised Ellie is so expressive and cute of course they want a picture of her. Heidi you look cute too. What a fun day for you guys.

  4. I LOVE that "kissing cousins" picture. Adorable!
