    the Bad A**-gene is STRONG!

  2. Craig says:

    They work hard, and play hard. They even vacation with intensity.

  3. Maybe crazy Aunt Babs took the photo and they just weren’t ready yet. She clicked the shutter on two! ON TWO!

  4. DavidO says:

    Amy Winehouse makes her comeback as a tour guide?

  5. Snowrider says:

    “C’mon kids, St. Ignace and the Mystery Spot are just 8 short hours away!”

  6. Hm says:

    I don’t get it. I mean it’s a silly picture but not so awkward, just a family standing on some steps… what am I missing?

  7. Tocsnai says:

    Posture says so much. The boys’ sideburns are actually slouching, here.

  8. joyce says:

    dsto, loved the Gravel Museum comment. This could actually be taken at Rockome Gardens (the whole place is made of rocks, shell, bottles, etc). And why are Dads everywhere issued gray or black socks to wear with their sandals, never white or multicolored? Dad reminds me a bit of Kip Dynamite.

  9. So, uh, am I the only one who thinks that post looks like it’s covered in used chewing gum? Because it does.

  10. Joanne says:

    Dad may be 45 in chronological years, but dresses like an 80 year old.

    Whatever they are standing on looks like a chocolate cake or dessert LOL!

  11. Brett says:

    sweet socks dad…

  12. dawn says:

    Can I put another vote in for annoying comments? Let’s add “I don’t see why this is awkward” to the list of pointless remarks. Has anyone ever said something like, “First! I don’t think this is awkward but it is certainly photoshopped and I went to high school with that guy on the left and I know those aren’t his real sideburns”?

  13. Angie says:

    Welcome to the 657th happiest place on earth!

  14. Angie says:

    Nothing says awkward more than bad posture and big fluffy side burns.

  15. Sides says:

    Okay, let’s try something new. Everyone on the left… smile. Everyone on the right, frown! PERFECT! I am BRILLIANT! I’m turning this into TIME LIFE.

  16. dsto says:

    And After the Gravel Museum, we are heading over to The International House of Dirt!

  17. xavier says:

    Looks like he should be wearing sandals with that outfit. Obviously he didn’t put on his best for this one

  18. gus jackson says:

    this family has no idea what to do with there hands.

  19. Boppie says:

    The vacations you take with your family as a child/dependent are meant to teach you what kind of vacations you DON’T want to take with your family when you’re the adult/itinerier. (And I spelled that word very specifically to mean ‘the one who creates the itinerary’.) These children will never use a Triptik from AAA, never visit the World’s Largest or Smallest anything, and may even vacation separately from their spouses.
    Thanks, Mom and Dad!

  20. Queen of the World says:

    Non-tucked in shirts accompanied by wide leather belts are NOT optional attire for the next photo op. Again, NOT AN OPTION!

  21. Christopher says:

    Yo family, I’m real happy for you, and I’mma let you finish, but the Go-Gos had the best vacation of all time. OF ALL TIME.

    • sigh says:

      Oh god drop the kanye already lol

      about as worn out as “first”

      • eeyore19 says:

        But still not as worn out as all of the inane “photoshopped” remarks. I don’t get it…some of us make what we think are clever replies that never see the light of day, yet those “photoshopped” comments get approved without any problem.

  22. Murph says:

    Awkward, sure, but what in the hell is this family standing on?

  23. Anna Rexia says:

    The apparent father looks like he had a head start on that “belt line up one inch per year” thing.

  24. Tabitha says:

    Look Kids, Big Ben!

  25. ggbetty says:

    Awesome..you can see him just thinking over the schedule of the days activities..

  26. MyLeftNut says:

    Is that a Pentagram on the clamshell tree?

  27. Whoa says:

    Sorry, folks, park’s closed. Moose out front shoulda told ya

  28. J says:

    love those pants

  29. redsquid says:

    Vacations are serious business!

  30. jnmcnally says:

    they don’t look happy!

  31. mikvance says:

    Check out those sweet sideburns!

  32. Wavy-Gravy says:

    …shoulda called this one “Sideburns n’ Company”.

  33. greg says:

    Does it involve pork chops?

  34. Shorts says:

    15-min increments

  35. JB says:

    Ah yes, the great pebble column landmark. I can see why they stopped to take a picture here.

  36. Venice says:

    why do I get the feeling a woman in a revealing outfit walked behind the photographer?

  37. MattBinSC says:

    Okay…Everyone make a completely random face.

  38. BunnySpice says:

    OMG. I think I know them.

  39. Cheryce says:

    Are they standing on/in front of a tree made from gravel?

    Wow.

    “Ok, kids. We have to take a quick shot here, and then we have to be at the giant ball of twine before 4:12pm”

  40. marcie says:

    I dunno…they aren’t happy, but I just don’t see why this would make it up to the website.

  41. Younger man says:

    Socks and shorts or sandals is a no-no.

  42. Curious says:

    That woman on the left — could she be Marney?

    • Just Passing Thru says:

      Not Marney-her roots are showing. Marney would never allow her roots to show. Her hair is cut and colored to her Regulation specifications-and the gray wouldn’t dare show itself during an ‘official Family Vacation’ photo. It is scheduled to grow out during official ‘downtime’-in between holidays when she knows she will not run into any family and/or friends or acquaintances-her hair KNOWS better.

  43. ATS says:

    1:17 p.m. Family photo by the junk encrusted pillar. Please do not be late, as we will want to take more than one shot to ensure a better holiday card than last year. Please remember to wear appropriate clothing. I.E. no beer logo t-shirts this year, boys. Thanks for cooperating. ~Marney

  44. Lulu says:

    YIKES!!! What a happy looking family…..looks like dads a little excited for the ITINERARY…..then you have the thug wannabe son…the one making his get away plan..and the pre pubescent daughter…..not to mention mom…what’s she so excited for? lol

  45. Carla says:

    Nice muttonchops.

  46. kandee says:

    Is that rocks/pebbles on the tree/steps? If so, way kool!

  47. Candice A says:

    It looks like the son on the left is the one who sneaks away from his room after Dad declares “Light’s out” because they have to leave at 5am to go see the World’s Largest Green Bean and goes down to the lobby to find girls. He’s a real lady’s man, that one.

  48. Matthew says:

    See, if you don’t do an armshelf, WHAT exactly are you supposed to do with your arms when posing besides just letting them hang?

  49. Romeo says:

    This reminds me of those Chevy Chase movies…

  50. Richard Davies says:

    Socks (especially Argyll diamond checked ones) are a real “Brit on holiday” giveaway when worn with sandals.

  51. Anna Rexia says:

    The father is wearing socks, but they aren’t argyle and he’s not wearing sandals. I don’t see socks on anyone else.

  52. ping says:

    I’m sorry but you are totally wrong, Brits DON’T wear socks and sandals, that’s a German thing. And no-one in this picture is even wearing socks and sandals…so they maybe Brits, but they don’t look that British to me. Me being a Brit and all.

  53. Scott says:

    I dont know what he is talking about either anna!
