Behind The Awkwardness: Wade In The Water

“This is the result of me getting the lead in a play. I had to stand in a blow-up swimming pool on stage in a swimsuit while a group of kids sang “She waded in the water” behind me. The grand finale was me getting my swim suit wet. Definitely awkward back then, but kind of creepy now.”

Heads Up

“My Mother got a great deal on this family portrait, mainly because it wasn’t meant to be for a family THIS size. But we were all together, so she was determined to make it work.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Channel Surfing

“This pic of my cousin Julia and I was taken after Thanksgiving dinner, 2012. My sister took the shot but, before she did, she handed the remote control off to my 63 year old mother. It wasn’t until we were looking at the pics a few days later that we saw where my mom’s channel surfing had landed her.”

Interview With A Vampire

“Back in the early 1970′s my crazy mother loved having big, over the top Halloween parties.  At this one, she rented a coffin from a funeral home and laid in it for hours while my friends came to visit her.  I think she was loaded personally.  To this day, people remember her for this party!”

Granny’s Got A Gun

“In 2010, we sent you this spunky picture of our sweet Grandma Nadine (taken years earlier). We are saying goodbye to this beautiful woman on Tuesday, but are forever grateful to AFP for memorializing her spunky attitude on your board game. She got a kick out of being a part of the AFP family! Thanks for sharing our fun memories!”

We are sending our love to Lisa and to her legendary Grandma. Her spirit and spunk in this photo will live on forever.
