Pictures And Story Of Our Ellen Trip

I thought I’d share a few of the pictures from our adventure to sunny California this month! It was so fun getting to fly with the girls for the first time, and even more fun getting to meet Ellen DeGeneres! Here are some photos from the trip including the plane ride, the hotel, Universal Studios and of course behind the scenes with Ellen!

Our first attempt at flying with the girls! We all know how that turned out! This is at Salt Lake International Airport.

Dad was stuck with the naughty Scarlett, and didn’t have an extra hand for a picture!

We had such and incredible time in LA and feel so blessed to be able to go on The Ellen Show and give just a small glimpse of what our lives are like. Ellen was so incredibly kind, as was her staff! We are humbled at her gift she gave and can’t wait to go visit her again! Hope you enjoyed the pics! I’ve attached the clip to our segment on Ellen below! Thanks for all the love and support!
