Bunnybackers

“My mom worked for the local University athletic department and thought it would be a good idea to hire a few football players to dress up as Easter bunnies. My friend and I cried the moment we saw them. Our parents finally coaxed us over to the swings to get a quick photo before they sent them away. It was definitely an Easter fail.”

Hot Tub

“This is me and my sister, back on the farm in Saskatchewan where we grew up. My grandmother used to fill this wash tub with the hose and we called it the “swimming pool”. I am the one with the suspicious toothless smile and the half shaven doll. When my sister showed her friend this picture she was asked “Why is your brother holding a squeegee?”. Sister….I am her older sister….and I have no explanation for the squeegee.”

The Inauguration

“My dad was a judge for many years. This was taken at his first inauguration. I was not in the mood for yet another picture and REALLY had to pee. The look on my mom’s face says it all. Through clenched teeth she was probably saying something like, ‘Get your GD hands out of your privates!'”

The Little People

“I’m the boy sitting next to the two Umpa Lumpas (sisters), with my mom and brother right behind me. Soon after this fun-filled afternoon, my sister dropped a glass bottle of milk on my foot and I got 24 stitches.”

On The Rocks

“We loved this particular beach in Minnesota… didn’t realize what the writing on the rock meant until much later! My sister (left) and her best friend would sit and play in front of that rock for hours… good to know that some parents have an odd sense of humor.”
