Taken on the Southern Rim of the Grand Canyon.

First of all, this is an honest to goodness real photo taken with an i-phone and it was not edited in any way.  Second of all, Peyton took the photo.  (I was home in Illinois.)  You may ask how this was shot?  Quite simply Jordan jumped like a kangaroo and Peyton rapidly took photos.  He essentially kept tapping his finger on the touch screen.  I am certain of this fact, because I have seen the evidence – several shots of Jordan taking off and landing…. (There is a fence present but you cannot see it at the angle of which Peyton took the photo and Jordan was jumping.)

One more thing, I just about fainted when I saw this photograph.  I was ready to call their dad and yell on the top of my lungs – instead, I called Jordan and gave him the whole “how could you speech” and “what would have happened if you fell” and “why were you fooling around by a bazillion foot drop off” and “you could have been killed and turned into buzzard food” and “what were you thinking”……  Okay, I will shut up now…..

      Guess what? He got accepted for an internship with the AFI – American Film Institute in LA. You will particularly like the project – working with female directors – a project currently being funded by the AFI. My baby will be going to LA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Yes. I just about fainted as well. I thought for certain it was photoshopped. When I was told it was not and shown the other photos I just about had a cow!!!!
