Something Stunning in D.C.

There's something really amazing about this picture. In fact, it's so amazing that when I tell you what's going on, you're not going to believe it. Those of you who know me personally may have your entire perception of me changed by reading to the end of this post. I felt like I should warn you, and now I have.

This is my daughter sitting on the grass in front of the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. We were heading towards the Washington Monument when the fatigue from an entire day of wandering around the capital hit us hard, and we decided to crash out on the grass for a little bit. I was laying flat on my back when I glanced up and noticed my daughter looking particularly cute. I tried to line up a shot, but it's pretty hard to get a good picture when you're lying on your back, so I had to do the unthinkable...I had to do a sit-up.

Actually, let's call it a stomach crunch (That sounds more manly anyways.). Now let me say that I'm not too sure what all the fuss is about. Sure my back cracked and my stomach cramped up, but it probably only took about 45 seconds total, and after resting for 15 minutes or so, I probably could have done another one. Fortunately, I got a passable shot the first time, so I didn't have to do a second sit-up. It's probably some kind of super ability that I have - combining photography with physical fitness. I've never heard of it before, so maybe I'm the only one who can do it? More likely, nobody else has ever tried it, but somebody has to be the trendsetter. Of course, I'd be more than willing to pass that burden off to somebody else. Any takers?....Please?

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby and Friday Daydreamin at R We There Yet Mom. If you didn't get here from one of those sites, you should really go check them out. There's people there who are complete trendsetters themselves. I'm pretty sure one of them even invented the Hunger Games. True story....
