Recreating The Awkwardness

“On our last day of vacation we visited Jones Beach on Long Island… a beach that we visited many times as children. We happen to have two awesome pictures from our youth at that beach and this was the first time in at least 5 years that all 4 of us were there together again! So…there was no question it was time to recreate those classics!”
