The Martel family, "Wife Swap"

The Martel family, from "Wife Swap," poses at their home in Trumbull. From left to right is Karin Martel, sons Dean, 10, Max, 12, and dad, Jay. The Martel's were in the "Wife Swap" episode with the now infamous Heene family from Colorado (you know, balloon boy). Mayumi Heene came to the Trumbull, Conn., home of Jay Martel, and Karen Martel traveled to Colorado to spend time with Heene, the storm chaser who liked to indulge his three wild-mannered boys in dangerous tasks.CHRISTIAN ABRAHAM/ CONNECTICUT POST
