Behind The Awkwardness

Dump Truck

“My 10-month-old was sitting in the Tonka truck and my 2-year-old wanted sit in it with him but wouldn’t fit. So I put the 2-year-old on the back of it and both boys were so cute and smiley and happy that I ran to get the camera. As I was focusing and they were both still smiling. I clicked the shutter and then both boys went toppling backwards. My 2-year-old exclaimed, “mmmKAY!” (I’m OK!) and the baby let out a single fuss. I laughed uncontrollably when I saw the picture. My husband thought it made quite the awkward family photo.”

Grandpa George

“My Grandpa George is…..well…quite the show stopper. We never had a normal family or photo for that matter. When the family would all get together, we could always count on Grandpa George to make us laugh. He would get so hammered he would disappear into his bedroom for a half hour and either the Wolfman, Dracula, or Zorro would come out and chase us around the house! We had a blast. Im in this picture, but my granny is blocking me. You can tell by the smiles on our faces we didn’t care who thought we were crazy… we had the BEST grandpa in the whole world!”

Who Likes Short Shorts?

“This is a photo of my dad back in 84 or 85. Those were one of his many pairs of daisy dukes. Both him and my grandpa had a matching pair of ones with rainbows on the sides. I was always embarrassed when they would attempt to take me out in public while they were wearing them.”

No Thanks

“This is one of my wedding pictures. The photographer had asked my husband to kiss my neck while my mom was five feet away. As you can see, our reaction was caught on camera.”

Plaidoon

“This was a family picture of my siblings and I taken a few years ago. I decided it would be a good idea to wear plaid and my brothers decided to follow suit. My sister however, not having plaid, raged.”

Baby Powder

“This is a favorite early photo of my daughters after a strange incident involving baby powder. Their future personalities shine through.”

Catch of the Day

“My five year old daughter had been trying to catch a fish for about 30 minutes with left over breakfast pancakes. Time after time she would throw her line out and then…. much to her surprise she caught herself! :)”

“This is my lovely family and myself. My sister was holding me and trying to wiggle out her tooth with her lips.”
