"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

Jumping for joy

So Kristen really has this thing about doing "jumping pictures" every time we go to the beach.  And since Kristen is at the beach for the week and we miss her so much, Charise and I decided that we would get the rest of the family to join us in a jumping picture.  Also, in honor of Charise leaving for St. Louis and Washington University tomorrow, we all were wearing our WashU t-shirts.

The trick with these pics is the angle of the camera.  If you have the camera low to the ground it makes it appear that you are jumping really high when you're really only jumping 6".

Charise and I had to test it out before getting everyone else to join in:

timing is everything

First try with the 3 of us

Almost, first try with all of us

At least we jump symmetrically

Cingular/AT&T: Raising the bar

Our 4th try, but we were off center

Too slow

Didn't even know we were supposed to jump

And we were all up, but a blurry picture, it still kind of looks cool though

And finally on the 20th try we all got up in the air at the same time!!

"He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God."  Acts 3: 8
