Mom thought leopard print would be too tacky.

OMG Natalie how is it you still have this picture. I now have a 8 year old son of my own and had to show him.
P.S. For all who don’t know I’m the little girl on the left with the ever so lovely “top-pony”. And for the one that wanted to know why we would dress like cows, it was a rodeo.
Rochelle!!!! WoW! can’t believe I haven’t seen your reply earlier! ….what’s that? ….almost 2 years!?!?!?!
We’ve been thinking of you & wondering where you were. Contact me when you can & we’ll catch up.
Hey!!! They can get free chick fil a on cow appreciation day in July if they were these outfits!
MY EYES! MY EEEYYYEEES!!!
I said camouflage, not cow-moo-flage!!
this is so awesome!!!!!!!!!! @ my house we do the same!!!!
This is not awkward. They were the spokesmodels for Gateway computers.
It looks like the girl is giving her mom a piggyback ride. It also looks like mom has teeny-weeny legs.
“Cow YOU doin?”
Great that the kids COWoperated.
I am so relieved that I was not the only one rocking the bowl haircut with a ponytail on top!
Don’t worry, little girl, you’ll get your just right of center ponytail soon.
the little one is so cameoflaged her face looks like mom’s udder
Just ….OMG! The outfits speak for themselves, but I am drawn particularly to the “top pony”. I used to wear my hair line that when I was little. I was never one to grow my hair long, so this is a way girls with short do’s could still put their hair up.
There was some mistake with the photogrpaher & client…. It was supposed to be a black and white family photo…..he meant the film!!!!
OMG That looks like my aunt linda and 3/5 of her daughters LMAO!!! (and the funny thing is, it just might be!)
So glad my mom didn’t see this while I was still small enough to be talked into it.
Looks like what you would see on Beef-a-rama weekend in Minocqua, Wisconsin.
I love the ponytails on the top of the 2 oldest girls’ heads. As though the Dorothy Hammill haircut on the oldest girl wasn’t awkward enough, Mom added a top tail!
and the owners of the cow farm still giggle this day
rememberin when Cow Patty and kids came there to stay
This picture was taken by the Dad/husband Bo Vine.
I am not a-mooooooosed
Ten bucks says they’re going to break out in a clog dance right after this was taken!
I love it that the youngest girl is almost invisible against the green-screen effect – just a cute lil’ noggin bobbin’ in space ’round these here lady parts.
What is the back story to this? What event could possibly call for an entire family to dress like cows? From the looks on their faces, it’s a fun one.
I feel a “tipping” coming on.
I need more cowbell!
They’re ready for Marney’s Christmas party!
YAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Good thing I had just set down my coffee when I read this! Marney would say,
“Now to the Derry Farmer family, we all appreciate your enthusiasm for livestock, but as you know, some of us are vegetarians, so please leave your offensive udders at home. Instead, you may all wear Lands’ End polo shirts — no teal or mustard shades as we want to honor the season — and flat-front khakis. NO FRONT PLEATS. Since nobody will eat what you bring anyway (really Mary, we all know you bring it in aluminum foil instead of the proper covered dish I requested), you can bring the turnips, and a bottle of that chardonnay I love so much. Love and kisses, Marney”
The good news is they all got free meals at Chick Fil-A.
I love that the girls were allowed to show individuality by each wearing different colored boots and belts.
Mom says to MOOOOOOVE over a bit….
That is udderly awkward.
I bet they get LOTS of free food at Chick Fil A!
Your mother is entirely correct. Leopard print would have been VERY
The pattern makes the little girl nearly invisible. Cow camouflage. Seeing only her head it looks as if her mother is giving birth to a 4 year old.
Holy cow. My rule has been no woman over 30 should wear cow anything. That has now been modified.
I love that the background is a concrete curb-and-gutter city street. Very “country”!
what do you mean, a “city street”? there’s a horse in field behind them! at any rate, this just is in that really tight space between cute and awkward. maybe jammed up a little bit more toward the awkward side…
What about the horse,large field and unpainted building? that’s very country. duh
Where I come from, the city streets are paved. And so are the town and village streets, now that I think of it.
Well, at least they’re all in a good mooooooooooooooood. 🙂
Mom should know better. Always put the dark solid on the bottom half and the print on top. On the other hand, that, too, would just be wrong in this situation. 😀
even cowgirls get the blues.
“How many head ya keepin’, Joe?” “Four so far, Bill.” Wow! That’s a lot of cow spots!
