Don’t Sweat It

“My dad grew up in Minnesota, where the tradition of sweating out your worries (and clearly your soul), in a giant, cedar oven is passed down from each white, pasty, Scandinavian generation to the next.”

First Family

“When my parents were getting their portraits taken, the photographer had an idea. My Mom wore a tube top and my Dad took his shirt off! The photographer even entered this in a photography contest and won. He gave them a copy of the photo for posing for him, but what he truly gave us is an amazing captured moment that made me wonder if this is what married life is like. I saw this picture every day hanging up in their bedroom.”

Meet The Mullets

“This is a photo of my parents and I when I was about two years old. My hair grew in as a mullet and both of my parents had them as well. All my friends die laughing and think it’s fake when I show it to them.”

Spit Take

“We were taking family selfies while sitting in the grass. Our girl ate a dead leaf and we noticed it a split second after this picture.”

The Retirement Gift

“This photo is my mom, about 17 years ago, opening a large package containing a beautiful handmade quilt that the staff at her school gave her at her retirement party (she was school nurse for 27 years). Dad was holding the bottom edges of the bag it was packed in so she could remove the contents more easily.

I found the photo recently, took another look, and fell over laughing!!  We think Dad, who died in April 2011, would have gotten a big kick out of it, too.  (Mom said I could submit this; she has a great sense of humor.)”

Witchcraft

“Dad uncovered this gem from my high school graduation. I wish I could say we staged this.”
