The Wonder of Nature

“We came all the way from Minnesota. My husband and I kept telling our three kids how breathtaking and amazing the Grand Canyon was. When we arrived the entire thing was covered in fog and we couldn’t see a thing!”

“We’re a big sports family and basketball is particularly valued. With nearly every kid having taken their turn on the court (and their father as the team coach more than once), we decided to forego the traditional fireplace/piano/studio family photo one year for this “jump ball” monstrosity staged in a high school gym with me as the ref, my parents as the coaches (notice my dad yelling at me) and my brothers and sisters as the players.”

Donald, Goofy, and Me

“My aunt (15) carrying me, (3) Norway 1970. I was terrified and in hysterics. I think she felt slightly uneasy too.”

“Our mother always loved making us pose for photos. Here we are on holiday, pointing to a mineshaft. On her cue. Of course. Our brand new mustard-coloured Renault 12 is in the background: fun times.”

Animal Planet

“This is the photo my mom used to send out with her annual Christmas letter in 2006. It’s my dad, mom, myself, and my brother. And ALL the pets! None of which my dad claimed, I’m pretty sure he didn’t want to claim us either.”

Monkey Business

“We’re on a family trip to Thailand. My wife wanted my son to take pictures with the monkeys. My wife only had eyes for our son, and not what the monkeys were doing in the background.”

“Our Aunt Helen made these for the three of us and while I know she worked very hard on them, I was mortified. That’s me on the left. I’m smiling but my eyes are red from crying because I didn’t want to wear it. The compromise was that I didn’t have to wear the bonnet. I don’t have much of a fashion sense but even then, at a tender young age, I knew this was wrong, very wrong.”
