Via The Atlantic Wire's John Hudson, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman has released a slew of childhood photos on his Facebook page, ahead of his anticipated announcement Tuesday that he'll run for president in 2012.

Huntsman, who is probably hoping these images will win soften the hearts of GOP primary voters, can be seen doing things like riding farm equipment, mowing the lawn, and getting married. Huntsman will make his announcement Tuesday morning in New Jersey's Liberty State Park, which overlooks Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
