    Twilight NERDvana


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     When cinders23 found out that her husband had a business trip to Seattle, the family took up the chance to sink their teeth into all things Twilight. Having enjoyed all the films and looking forward to "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" out this November, she says having had this experience will offer a nice close to a chapter on something she and her daughter have shared through the years. "My daughter and I are Twilight fans. My husband is just a good sport! It was very exciting to stand in the exact spot that the cast stood in when filming the movie," she says. "We were all in a good and goofy mood the entire day as we visited the sites. We had a blast with our daughter! It was a trip we'll never forget."
    - Anika3, CNN iReport producer

    My husband had business in Seattle, and my daughter & I joined him. Before we left we researched where the movie 'Twilight' was actually filmed. We were going on a Pilgrimage! Parts of the movie were filmed in Kalama, WA, Ecola State Park, and St Helens, OR. We got to walk in the actual footsteps of the actors & actresses. We re-enacted Bella & Edward walking into the HS from the parking lot, My daughter & hubby thought it was funny to scare me w/ vampire teeth at the HS. We got to see Bella's house, the restaurant, the walkway where Bella was accosted by the frat boys, the book store, and the beautiful beach, Indian Beach at Ecola State Park, where Jacob & Bella talk about the cold ones for the first time. It was the trip of a lifetime, and it's something we'll never forget Even my hubby said it was fun!.
