Uncles, Aunts, & Cousins
“This is my cousin and I at the races. We are the same age and were in the same class at school, so I always felt a little bit of rivalry with her. My older brother, my older sister and my younger brother all won the “Best Dressed” in their age/gender categories, but my cousin won in ours. I was so dirty on her for winning because not only did I have to put up with (what I saw as) her smugness, I also had to put up with my siblings teasing.
We are now in our 30’s, great mates, and think this photo is hilarious. Especially since my cousin admitted she was jealous of my hat and scrunchy socks (which were all the rage back then).”

“During family photos at the beach, the baby wiggled too much so my great aunt dropped him… everyone else realized it except my brother and cousin.”

“When I was a kid, my mom, who is a seamstress, would make funky gifts every year for Christmas. Some time in the late 80s, she got her hands on some giant men’s underwear and made sports bra’s out of them. Hence, my two aunts and grandma modeling them on Christmas Eve. This is just one of many awkward Christmas eve photos.”
