when rachel was pregnant with sequoia, we took nick for a walk in tryon creek state park, and made this photo, which has turned out to be my most popular image on flickr.com.

three and a half years later, we ended up on a family walk in tryon creek state park and decided to stage a reprisal of the scene -- this time its two-on-one, with a three-year-old karate kid on the ground, plus rachel vs. nick in midair. rachel and nick really know how to get their feet off the ground. nobody coached nick here, he just jumps like that.
