Double Dutch - Behind The Awkwardness

“On the eve before my grandparents 60th anniversary party this photo was passed around. In 1991 for their anniversary they went to Holland. There is so much going on in the picture that every time you look at it you see something new – and horribly awkward. Don’t miss out on the painted wooded shoes, the tangle of yarn and that white hat.”

    I have the same picture! It’s so precious. I guess you have to be Dutch to appreciate it? We took it with our kids and we all love it years later!

    Nothing strange about thuis pic. Just typical Dutch.

    I love her skirt. And I would love to go to Holland. Grandparent pics are usually cute, not awkward. Unless the grandparents are naked.
