Taking group photos is an ordeal, especially when it comes to family. Why? Because there are always certain folks who refuse to behave. In our family, those certain folks happen to be male.
Exhibit 1: On the back row you can clearly see my Uncle David acting out. This is called his "Pangburn Man" impression. It's a long story. And then there's my beloved, front and center, looking lovely as ever.
Exhibit 2: We were almost there. Almost. Except for the back row again. My dad and uncles (the tall dudes) were doing something involving butt pinching. Yep. I said it. Pinching.
Exhibit 3: This was our last and final picture, the one that will eventually go on all our walls. Years from now our descendants will look at this, ponder Matt's "happy face" and wonder, "Huh? Was great-grandfather Matt OK, you know, in the head?" And maybe if blogs are still in existence someone will read this and say, "Yeah, he was OK. He just wouldn't behave."
