DD and I were up bright and early yesterday (well, early at least), because the Today Show was filming their weather segment from Sovereign Hill. Volunteers were asked to come and be part of the backdrop, so we decided that we’d get up at 5am to join the fun… oh, and breakfast was going to be provided, so how could we resist?
It was interesting to see how the “behind the scenes” stuff worked, and how it was all put together. It was live as well, so no practice takes! Everyone was really friendly and there was a great atmosphere…
Even before we became volunteers at Sovereign Hill we were members for years, and one of the things we loved about going there were the friendly staff and volunteers. There is always lots of fun to be had when you visit, and yesterday was no different – they did some fun stuff with Stevie, the host…
…….with one of the puppets:
And Stevie was kind enough to pose with Dad and DD:
Dad was pretty excited since he always watches the Today show 🙂 The show crossed live to us every half hour, and focused on different parts of the museum each time. When we weren’t needed, we had cuppas and I worked a bit on my sampler:
Forgot to take pics of the breakfast we had after the show. It was at the New York Bakery and was very yummy 🙂 If that was a sample of their breakfast menu, I’ll have to go again one day!!
All in all, it was a lovely start to the day and a great experience…
Coming up next…… doing something with this fabric…….
