Feeling Groovy - Behind The Awkwardness

“My “Far-Out” mama apparently thought all of us wearing tie-dye and making our hair as feathered as possible would make the perfect family photo. Please keep in mind this was taken in 1992, when neither tie-dye nor blue eyeliner were in fashion… Thanks Mom!”
