Everybody Do The Dinosaur - Behind The Awkwardness

“Photo of my family and me (on the left) in the 80’s. No lie, this was a casual Saturday afternoon on our way to the mall! Just HaleyASaurus, MommyASaurus, and HeidiASaurus traveling around in our “Wish We Were A Dinosaur Family” sweats!”

    wow mom!!!! good for you!!! I don’t think I’d have the nads to play dress up in any decade like you did here!! 😀 Those kids of yours are beeming!! What a happy family and I agree with ppl on here that wonder how it will look for the young ones who take pics now..in 30 yrs…good luck with that ppl!! Try to be as happy as this family seems to be and you will have gotten somewhere in life!

    I can’t believe people wore stuff like that to go out in public, except I did the same thing then.

    Best mama ever. This is the sweetest pic I have seen on AFP. I love it.

  4. Tessa says:

    Awww. I love it.

    Best mum ever!

    Really cool outfits actually. Love the “teeth” around the necks. Those were the days.

    10 Years ago I became the “Bonus Mom” to these two darling women and a friend of their truly awesome mother. You are all right. . .she rocked then and as a new and first time grandma, Marmee still ROCKS!!!

    Hey Everyone! Thank you for the sweet comments! We were always a very happy family and still are! 🙂 They are definitely white satin bows around the collar and down the leg! Haha! My mom’s friend ALWAYS made us matching outfits, and this one was by far the best!

    Just want to agree with everyone else. Awkward? OK, yes a little. But also: really, really great. This is the most heart-warming photo I have seen in a long time.

    I had an “AmandaASaurus” sweatshirt like this that I loved SOOOOOOOOO much. Nice photo!

  11. Deborah says:

    Okay – you look ridiculous, but you also look really happy – which is way more important. Your mom is awesome.

    • Lizzie says:

      I had the same thought….This is AFP at it’s finest! And yep, they look silly (Now) but everyone looks so genuinely happy! Makes me wonder what will look equally silly to folks 30 yrs from now that look back on pictures of all of us from 2013.

    If all dinosaur families were like yours, they’d have never gone extinct!

  13. B says:

    Your mom rocks.

  14. JoonieB says:

    I’m trying to figure out what the neck detail is. It also seems to be going down one leg. Maybe Heidi or Haley can tell us?

  15. The Arquette Sisters says:

    ERMAGAWD Dinosaurz!

  16. kathy says:

    Wow, Heidi looks just like Mom! This is so 1980’s!
