    Mom saw this curtain hanging in the window of a Hawaiian restaurant and had to have it!

  2. Malithion says:

    I wonder if they got the shirts from a special-order catalogue geared towards parents who want family portraits in matching uniform x3

  3. tracy says:

    I’m laughing out loud at the title (and captions on other pictures)…”Hawaii NINE-O” LOL

  4. Sam says:

    I think this picture is adorable!

  5. obyo says:

    I know this family personally…. The funniest thing in this photo is definitely his moustache. you would have to know him to know the story behind it…

    Who’d have thought my 15 minutes of fame would come when my wife and her family got posted on the “Awkward Family Photos” site? Or, rather, it’s *their* 15 minutes… sort of…

    Wow. I have to admit that was the *last* thing I think I ever expected to see.

    Nice to know my wife was cute as a kid, though.

    And yes, the dark-haired lady in the middle is the mum, and is young there (and has aged well, I should add). Oh, and the “little boy without pants” is actually a short-haired girl, and I think she’s in shorts.

    In answer to all: We just had someone direct us to this link. We are not sure how it got here but we are glad you enjoyed our family photo – we certainly enjoyed reading all the comments together! (Well, most of them). Mom is still looks that young and dad still has the ‘stache and the smile.
    -The girl in the middle 🙂

    I know I’m probably not the first to notice this, but there seems to be a relation between how large the family is and how awkward the photo will be. So many photos on here have abnormally large numbers of children.

    The Duggars, when the show was called “7 Kids and Counting”

  10. Catie says:

    Lol. It was the only shirt she could find 9 of.

  11. Faina says:

    I’m 99% sure that the person everyone here is calling “the mom” is actually a teenage boy.

  12. JerseyPam says:

    They all look so happy. If my dad had taken the family to Olan Mills for vacation, we would NOT have been smiling.

  13. Katie says:

    Distinctly awkward, but also kind of awesome!

  14. Kriste says:

    I wish that they would all get togeter and re-create this. For some reason I can imagine the mom and dad wanting to get some new matching shirts and take a picture with all their kids and grandkids.

    • Random Guy says:

      Actually, given the number of grandkids they have, full family photos have proven… challenging and infrequent.

      But the grandkids are very cute (but maybe I’m just biased). 🙂

  15. Darin says:

    There is a distinct possibility that the little boy in the middle is not wearing pants!

  16. Lisa Langley says:

    I live in Hawaii and see this shirt all the time! 🙂

    • Nell says:

      Me too but it’s more often in red. It’s still really common for families to dress in matching Hawaiian prints for special occasions. I think they’re pretty cute!

  17. Zooky says:

    Hawaii is going to be crime free with these detectives on the case! (Cue the groovy Hawaii 5-0 music…)

  18. joey says:

    Would have been more interesting if the backdrop had the same pattern as the shirts

  19. AngelBaby says:

    Olan Mills strikes again…

  20. JennyM says:

    So THAT’S what happened to Magnum’s younger brother !!! Thomas got the car, and Bubba got the girl. And the kids. And the shirt factory.

  21. mrscori says:

    This is a cute picture, it’s only tacky cause it’s the 80’s. I work in a restaurant and just today a couple came in with 7 kids….I just thought to myself, God bless’em and better them than me!

    • mrscori says:

      …btw, the daughter on the upper right looks just like the mom, so despite her youthful looks maybe she did mother all of them…

  22. HeatherJ says:

    Is that the mom or the oldest kid??

  23. iLOLd says:

    Ok, now everybody do the wave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Alan says:

    Maybe they are all off to the fortune teller….to get their PALMS read !!!!

  25. Starman says:

    There’s nothing awkward about this photo. It looks like a close knit normal family to me!
    Mom sure looks good for having seven kids!! Dad looks familiar…. I wonder at which Olan Mills Studio this picture was taken…..
    Very nice picture……

  26. Mandie says:

    By the look on dad’s face, it seems the shirts were his idea.

  27. scooter says:

    the Doogers go Hawaiian

  28. Julie says:

    I love this to… I am thinking it might have been a Sound of Music inspiration.
    Y’know clothes out of curtains.. or perhaps bedsheets!

  29. AndrewT says:

    He looks a lot happier about having fathered seven kids than she does about having had to give birth to them.

  30. Don says:

    I need to get my eyes checked. I thought the blonde boy in the right bottom corner was holding a trumpet…

  31. Young Colonel Sanders dreams of going to Hawaii

  32. Sandy says:

    Apparently the key to youth is having LOTS of kids. The mom looks so young!

  33. Denise says:

    I love this picture!!!

  34. BARB says:

    At least all the kids are cute… half the pics posted on this site the children are frightful! This pic is funny… but the kids are all adorable..

  35. PlowKing says:

    The most awkward element of this photo is the mustache.

  36. Normandin says:

    Wow..is it me or does the mom look ultra young?

  37. drsooz says:

    This looks like 9-headed blue flower monster.
