The Campbells on set

Before we left Oklahoma Chris scanned Google maps around the area we would be living in China. He randomly found a HUGE movie set that you can visit and it has been in his head ever since. For Mother’s Day, I wanted to get out of our village to take pictures of some open markets and the bustling streets of our area. Chris wanted to visit the movie set and according to the map, there was a community near by – perfect.

Well, the bus stopped and there was no community…just the movie set. I will admit to pouting about it. I wanted REAL China, not fake movie set China. However, everyone else in my crew had such a great time and sometimes moms need an attitude adjustment too!

I did pull out my phone to capture a couple of photos. In my poutiness I wasn’t going to take a bunch of photos because everything was fake. Beautiful, but fake. Wah Wah was Ashley – don’t worry, I got over it.

Being Mother’s Day and all, I did make sure to get a very Campbell photo while on set.

The kids have been creating iMovie movie trailers for a few months now. It was pretty cool to have so much open area with different ‘sets’ for them to create a new one. Hopefully, I’ve embedded the trailer right and you can see it below!

Sidenote: I had nothing to do with the spelling in this trailer 😉
