Fox2 News...

Well, we just watched our interview and of course we were all laughing our heads off!!

Seriously--it was a great segment...we would be terrible celebrities, we were all nervous.

Click on here to see the interview.

That is so disappointing that the news crews didn't show!!

But he should be so proud of what he has done. And Ricki is clearly proud of his Daddy! How cool is that?!

Lex the mom said...

That was AWESOME! Both Dad & his feat & the interview (the swim was much awesome-r, just cause of what it was for!)! Even though the press didn't show, I'm so glad you did get some exposure. I also hope many more people show next year for the swim!

I didn't think it added 10 pounds to any of you - if it did - that Lila has to be minute in real life!

That was cool. So are you making it an annual event?

RBK's Realm said...

Are you kidding me- you guys -each of you were a natural in front of the camera and looked great!

I did not realize that this was going to be an annual event.

Good that you are planning to join your remarkable husband. I have just restarted swimming after years and boy it takes some effort to build up endurance so his feat is really something...

Go Geyers!

Ronda's Rants said...

I am so very impressed and I am so sorry the press wasn't there! You are both such wonderful parents...I will check on your web page for the fund raising information! Thanks for a very uplifting story to start my morning! :)

What a fabulous piece and I should add, about time! Ricky is just adorable and you and your husband are not so bad, either. You guys looked great on camera and your husband was too cute when he said that you were ".... somene cool, like I did"!

And I loved it when Ricky was explaining how his dad swam 13 miles and he said, " woe." Totally something my 7 year old would say.

You guys are amazing!

2. Your husband is gorgeous!

3. Animated Rickie! Coolest thing every ;)


5. You guys are an awesome wicked brave.

6. Are you really going to swim next year?

7. Damn mayor.

8. Did I mention your husband is really gorgeous? And he said he married somebody really cool ON TELEVISION, I heard it.

9. I can't beleive I saw Rickie moving around!

10. They've come such a long way, my daughter had to have manual percussions and they invented the hand held vibrating thing for chest percussions during her short life time! Imagine what can all come about during Rickie's.

Goosebumps and tears.

Loving you more.

Congratulations! You and hubby were great! What a wonderful family!

Love your banner photo. You look fabulous and so does my hometown. I assume you were at CHOP for Ricky. What's the restaurant?

Sunshine said...

I just want to say EVERYTHING everyone said above!!!

I have two uncles that had CF, they NEED to find a cure!

I looooved Rickie's reactions. What an amazing kid!

It's so nice to see you in real life too!
