A local mother-daughter duo made an appearance on national TV Wednesday morning.
Morton first grade teacher Wendy Vastine and her daughter Allison were briefly featured on the Today Show. They caught the eye of Meteorologist Dylan Dreyer who interviewed them after noticing their sign stating they were from Morton, the pumpkin capitol of the world.
Wendy and Allison told us they got in line at 6 A.M. just to catch the show live. They said the hosts of the show were incredibly kind and they loved seeing how the live broadcast came together on the air.
Mom and daughter are in New York City on their spring break. Dad and Allison's brother are with them, but missed out on their five seconds of fame after they passed on visiting the show this morning, opting instead to sleep in.
