Blogtoberfest Day 11 - Awkward Family Photos

Hi everyone welcome to Day 11 of Octoberfest ! I recently stumbled upon a site called http://awkwardfamilyphotos.com/ and if you thought your family photos were awkward, wait until you see some of these. I am not sure what they were thinking at times but I can tell you these are immortalised forever on photographic paper. As a footnote, I did not make up the captions - they are shared directly from the awkward family photos site.
"They were very strict about their two people per plane window cut-out policy "
"Sometimes affection is a one-way street"
"This family preferred to play a game called  There's Waldo"
"The father was so relieved when he found out he was going to be Eyeore"

"Three Mexicans in very convincing old lady costumes"
And to tie in with the Awkward Family theme, I wanted to share with you this gorgeous song by Ben Kweller featuring his very very talented grandmother. Personally I think she rocks - here's to family !


  1. I thought you'd post some of your own awkward family photos!;) Where are they?

    Like the song, sweet lady.

  2. Baa haa haaa....hilarious. Oh those people went to such effort for those super dorky photos.

  3. Fran - I don't have any awkward family photos to post, well not ones that will see the light of day anyway ;)

    Del - I know right ? I mean what are they thinking ?
