    The dad totally resembles Cousin Eddie from the Vacation movies… lol

  2. Leanne says:

    Adorable family! And they all have the same smile!!

  3. Kate says:

    I do wonder why only the parents remembered to take off their glasses. Were contact lenses invented way back then!?

    • Bonnie B says:

      How do you know the parents wore glasses? And why would the kids take them off for a portrait, if they always wore glasses? And yes, contact lenses were around then!

    I adore that the dad looks like a willing participant. So many family photos have a grumpy, mean looking dad. This guy looks happy to spend the day with his family. A+ for him.

  5. Sarah says:

    My 2nd grade pictures have this same background – 1980.

  6. Cheryl says:

    Cute picture, and they look like a sweet family!

  7. Mememe says:

    I seriously cannot decide who is more adorable out of the 4 of them!

  8. Brandy says:

    They look sweetly goofy. That’s a total compliment. In my early 80’s family portrait we all just looked mean and goofy.

  9. DebbieLG says:

    I agree with everyone – it’s cheesy becasue it’s the 70’s/early 80’s with a cheesy background but they look like a lovely happy family. I could totally be that girl too! 🙂

  10. Peter says:

    I agree – this is an awesome, loving family. The backdrop is awkward for sure! Full disclosure: that boy could totally have been me.

  11. Amy says:

    I agree…cheesy background but they look like really sweet people!

  12. Jenny says:

    Aww, what a cute family!

  13. Tina says:

    Looks like they were rather a jolly, happy family to grow up in. Lucky family!

    Is it wrong to secretly look forward to the day when Aviator eyeglass frames will finally come back in style? No more sqinting through skinny lenses.

  15. Jenny says:

    Very sweet picture; brings back great memories from the 70s, and yes we had plenty of them.

  16. Lizabeth says:

    My take was similar… they are kind of sweet looking; yes, the background is fakey looking, but so what. Their smiles look genuine. Not awkward at all compared to some the gems I’ve seen in here.

  17. Justin says:

    how is this even remotely awkward?

    this looks like a nice family picture, just from the 70’s.
    old =/= awkward!

  18. Leonard says:

    Awkward? If this is awkward then every 70s and early 80s family portrait with a cheesy fake background is new fodder!

  19. Anne S. says:

    Awww… they actually all look very sweet. I do remember a similar backdrop from cheezy senior pictures, though. Wait, is that a garden shed??
