    The kid in the yellow just kills me. I can’t get over the face!! :)

  2. Bob says:

    Those are not fans they are a new version of snowshoes…designed for mud

  3. emm says:

    I think it’s the Gortons…

  4. Magdalene says:

    I love the look on the face of the kid in the yellow poncho. Great pic.

  5. Littlethingsinlife says:

    what is a compound bow?

  6. Monica says:

    Creepy how the mom and the two kids have the EXACT same smile…

  7. SEM says:

    This photo pretty much has to exist somewhere in my family. We like going out in the rain up at the cottage, it’s not pretty.

  8. Travis says:

    Aww, look….butterflies……

  9. Kate says:

    Rubber Boots, Ponchos, and fans? They must be in Oregon… hahaha

  10. kevin says:

    It’s not a fanny it’s a quill to hold the arrows for the compound bows

  11. James says:

    If Dad was wearing Green…they would have represented 3/4 of the color-spectrum of the Rainbow !

    Jr. is thinking that on the left, so he’s grining with family-pride…..but must have scolded him afterwards. “DAD WHERE WAS YOUR GREEN SLICKER !?”

  12. Edward says:

    The fans came in handy to swat away those gigantic, pesky fire-flies.

  13. Val says:

    In the orange: “It’s not a poncho, it’s a kilt!”

  14. Chazlette says:

    “Listen, I’ve heard there’s some crazy guy wearing an eye patch running around here. If you see him, just smile…then keep on walking”.

  15. Jewelsgrl says:

    I like how Dad said “Ah, screw it” to the poncho plan.

  16. rwblake says:

    LOL the ankle protectors. At least the bottom of their pants will be dry, no concern for shoes.

  17. ellen says:

    Thank god they brought gaiters to keep their shins and calves dry…but why the non-waterproof shoes? Clearly, it was just a quick trip to REI

  18. AlaskaRaven says:

    If it weren’t for the “Crossbows”, I’d think they were OUR tourists!

  19. Harp player says:

    they should slow down, too much life can be overwhelming

  20. DeadPan says:

    Those lights are much like the ones you get when using a flash from behind glass, this isn’t a family photo it’s an exhibit in a local zoo.

    Come children, gather round and marvel at the lesser spotted al fresco geek, don’t get too close to the glass they startle easily emitting a high pitched whine.

  21. Your Mom says:

    those orbs are gonna get ya!!!..better start praying to satan/god/omnipotent being of your choice.

  22. Sunshine says:

    I love the orange Mom — dressing a crossing guard.

  23. RockitQueen says:

    What’s with the ankle guards?

  24. Mike says:

    No, that’s not Victoria Falls. That shrub on the left isn’t native to that area.

  25. PJB says:

    Are they concerned about some sort of bug/snake that can only jump knee high – making the calf wrappers necessary?

  26. George says:

    This reminds me way too much of my time growing up in the Pacific Northwest.

    “Those aren’t fans, those are compound bows.”

    Awesome.

  27. Bessie says:

    Actually, this totally makes sense. In Victoria Falls, South Africa, it can be 100 degrees and then all of a sudden you are on the other side of the falls and, although it is still hot, it is like a rainstorm (constantly raining). That’s why people bring their rainwear. I think that is where this is.

  28. Señor_Citizen says:

    Given the choice, I’d rather be wet.

  29. Mike says:

    Guess all the Pooh outfits were taken

  30. Yesdog says:

    “No wait – I want to feature this fanny pack on the ouside! Why buy a orange fanny pack and not show it off?”

  31. Leah says:

    Is that my Great Uncle and Aunt Wayne & Caroline?!!!

  32. Candy says:

    I. Don’t. Get it.

  33. Jamie says:

    Leg warmers for everyone!

  34. Tim says:

    “Now is that a real poncho or is that a Sears poncho?”

    Only Zappa fans will get that joke…

  35. MacBon says:

    Another day out in sunny England!

  36. Kelly says:

    Does that orange poncho have a built-in fanny pack?

  37. Elizabeth says:

    Haha, that is so funny!

  38. Lucas says:

    Take me to your leader or the Earth will be destroyed…..

  39. DK says:

    At least they all got free ping pong paddles from Jungle Expeditions

  40. Andi says:

    Those aren’t fans, those are compound bows.
