Filming Our Family Story for the Jerry Lewis Telethon Today!

Well, today is a big day for us. The TV production crew for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in Tucson, AZ, arrived in Sacramento last night and took us out to dinner at PF Changs. We had dinner with several of the producers and crew who have been doing this work for over 30 years together. Amazing! Chastity, from our local MDA office, joined us for dinner too. We had a great time getting to know them all and can't wait to begin filming today. The crew will be arriving with 7 people at our home in a few hours to begin filming for this year's National Jerry Lewis MDA telethon on Labor Day. They are here to tell Kayla's story. Our local news channel, KCRA, is bringing one of our favorite anchors, Adrienne Bankert, over at 10:00 am to also do a quick interview with us. She interviewed us when Kayla was one years old on the local portion of the telethon here in Sacramento in 2006. She is so fun and I can't wait to show her how far Kayla has come since then. Well, I had better jump into the shower so I can get ready but I thought I would keep you updated on what's going on in our lives. Never a dull moment. I'll write more about this experience later.
