Puerto Rico Five-O

September 29th, 2010

“This is a photo of my family from 1968 when we went to Puerto Rico. That’s my mom and dad and older brother and sister. My brother and father look fresh wearing their matching shirts although my dad had to outdo his son by wearing the hat. My sister was going through her rebellious years and refused to wear anything sleeveless even though it was never below 90 degrees. My brother is so cool in those sunglasses. I am the young girl in front. I think I may have escaped the awkwardness only because I was only 5. My mother is trying to pretend that this is all very natural looking.”

Taj Mahal High

October 2nd, 2010

“Our family outings were launched from Saudi Arabia, and often included exotic locales. Like this place behind us, the Taj Mahal in Agra, India. That’s me, on the right. I loved my Brownie knee-highs, and loved to talk during photos. My sister is in the middle, staring off into the distance as she always did–she wore that Hulk shirt EVERYWHERE. My little brother obviously was too young to handle the responsibility of sock wearing, but I believe he was awkwardly donning a pair of authentic wooden shoes from a Holland trip. We travelled around the world SEVEN times. Too bad the majority of our photo albums are just as fashionless as this photo. I don’t brag too much about the places I’ve been only because I’m beyond awkward.”
