My Awkward Family Photo

Have you checked out AwkwardFamilyPhoto.com? I was hooked on it, but have completely gotten over my addiction. Technically, that's because on Sunday I looked through every single photo on the site and nothing is new to me anymore, but the important thing is that I got it out of my system.

While looking for an old prom photo for this post, I came across one that would fit in perfectly on the Awkward Family site. It's from high school, when my family went to Disney World for the first time. I was enchanted with the Disney magic, mesmerized by the characters and hyped out of my mind on the endless ride options. Apparently, none of the Disney pixie dust had been sprinkled on my dad and younger brother though.

Sometimes, I wonder if I may have been switched with another baby at birth. Then, I see a photo like this and I'm sure of it.

DISNEY! YAAAAY!!!
Yes, dad, we are from New Mexico. And try not to look too excited, Michael.

Switched at birth explains everything. That girl is off enjoying life with what should rightfully be my cheerful family. We would have had so much fun together, smiling and laughing. She's misplaced too - probably raining on their parade!

This is just one awkward family photo of many.
