Justin Freitas, a Senate fellow with the office of Sen. Jean Fuller, R-Bakersfield, gets help from 18-month-old Sean Collins, son of communications director Tom Collins, to get his frog to leap at the annual Capitol frog-jumping contest Wednesday.

The Capitol's annual contest, hosted this year by Sen. Tom Berryhill, R-Twain Harte, brings together lawmakers, legislative staffers and members of the media to "jockey" frogs to the longest (or shortest) jump.

Assemblywoman Cheryl Brown, D-San Bernardino, won the event as her frog, Larry B. 2.0, leaped 10 feet, 11 inches in three bounds.
