Something tells us an itinerary is involved here.
(submitted by Alissa)
the Bad A**-gene is STRONG!
They work hard, and play hard. They even vacation with intensity.
Maybe crazy Aunt Babs took the photo and they just weren’t ready yet. She clicked the shutter on two! ON TWO!
Amy Winehouse makes her comeback as a tour guide?
“C’mon kids, St. Ignace and the Mystery Spot are just 8 short hours away!”
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?
Posture says so much. The boys’ sideburns are actually slouching, here.
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.
So, uh, am I the only one who thinks that post looks like it’s covered in used chewing gum? Because it does.
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!
sweet socks dad…
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”?
I also find comments complaining about other comments annoying. Woops.
Welcome to the 657th happiest place on earth!
Quite a catchy little motto!
Nothing says awkward more than bad posture and big fluffy side burns.
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.
And After the Gravel Museum, we are heading over to The International House of Dirt!
Looks like he should be wearing sandals with that outfit. Obviously he didn’t put on his best for this one
this family has no idea what to do with there hands.
their, not there. sorry.
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!
Non-tucked in shirts accompanied by wide leather belts are NOT optional attire for the next photo op. Again, NOT AN OPTION!
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.
Oh god drop the kanye already lol
about as worn out as “first”
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.
Awkward, sure, but what in the hell is this family standing on?
The apparent father looks like he had a head start on that “belt line up one inch per year” thing.
Look Kids, Big Ben!
Awesome..you can see him just thinking over the schedule of the days activities..
Is that a Pentagram on the clamshell tree?
I thought it was a Bacardi Rum Logo.
Sorry, folks, park’s closed. Moose out front shoulda told ya
dude i cant stop laughing at ur comment. its halarious! lol lol
i love it too…ahahahaha. Sounds like something you’d hear in Minn.
love those pants
Vacations are serious business!
they don’t look happy!
Compared to some of the vacationers on this site, these people look like they’re overcome with enthusiasm! Loving the guys pants!
this pic is not aukward at all,looks just like a family pic to me
Check out those sweet sideburns!
…shoulda called this one “Sideburns n’ Company”.
Does it involve pork chops?
Ah yes, the great pebble column landmark. I can see why they stopped to take a picture here.
why do I get the feeling a woman in a revealing outfit walked behind the photographer?
Okay…Everyone make a completely random face.
OMG. I think I know them.
Yeah, I think I know the guy on the left. He’s the villain from Lazy Town on Noggin. Only he lightened his hair.
Good call, Tamara! It IS Robbie Rotten, from Lazytown! I always wondered what he looked like off the set.
Are they standing on/in front of a tree made from gravel?
“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”
I dunno…they aren’t happy, but I just don’t see why this would make it up to the website.
I agree. Sheesh! I sent in a better photo than this one and AFP won’t even post it. I don’t get it.
Socks and shorts or sandals is a no-no.
That woman on the left — could she be Marney?
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.
Oh how we know and love Marney LOL
Ah … very good point. Would be totally inappropriate for the family Christmas card.
toooooo funny!!! Wonder if Marney is aware of her ability to entertain others with her anal-ness…..lol
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
you just have to love appropriate ‘marney’ comments…for those of you who don’t know who Marney is….your lucky…don’t let her find you!!….lol
Peerfectly timed response by Marney:-)
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
Mom made the itinerary.
Where do you see a “thug wannabe” son?
Haha… I was wondering the same thing. I don’t see anything close to a thug wannabe in this picture. Strange thing to say.
Finally, proof that muttonchops aren’t genetic!
Muttonchops: not just for old hippies anymore!
Is that rocks/pebbles on the tree/steps? If so, way kool!
..it looks like Gum wads.
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.
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?
This reminds me of those Chevy Chase movies…
You are SO right! LOL!
Holiday roooooooooo – oooaaaad.
I once found a really good thing about road trips by W. Bruce Cameron, but I don’t know if’s still available. I made a text copy but can’t find a link by googling the first few lines.
Socks (especially Argyll diamond checked ones) are a real “Brit on holiday” giveaway when worn with sandals.
The father is wearing socks, but they aren’t argyle and he’s not wearing sandals. I don’t see socks on anyone else.
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.
I dont know what he is talking about either anna!
