Having a close family should never be taken too literally.

Hahaha, i freaking love this website! ooh danngg… hahaha! the kid with the braces and the innertube… freakin amazingg!! hahahaha love it
That’s just wrong.
I wonder if the headgear metal heats up in the hot tub. Ouch. And what is hanging around the barrell from that string?
It makes me want to jump in and join the party.
The kid at the front knows they’ve struck awkward gold!!
The finger is saying ‘Number 1′ !!
He knows they’re going straight to the top of the awkward charts!
Maybe they are nudist and they all are naked. You can’t tell if either boy is wearing swim trunks.
2 words: HEAD GEAR.
Braces is clearly working on “Blue Steel”
LMAO! You are correct!
Both kids are in inertubes? How big is that flippin barrel?
The mommy is kind of HAWT… If those other 2 weren’t in there I’d jump in. The poor fella in the back is impressed so much with his moms HAWTness.
Love this photo. Anyone notice Mom has her glasses perched on top of her head too?
It could only get worse if one of them had a snorkle and mask on.
The kids have nice farmer’s tans. Dig it!
Maybe it’s because I’m from Europe but… what’s so awkward about seeing your parents naked when you’re a kid?
I used to go with my parents to the beach each summer, and my mum would opt for the nudist beach. There were people of all ages, and you got over “omg, naked bits” after 5 minutes.
Just depends on the family, I guess. We all do things differently.
awkward! btw, yes, it’s because you’re from Europe.
That is most definitely a European sentiment… the culture on that sort of thing is wildly different for us.
I always love the massive dichotomy between Hollywood and general American uptightness when it comes to bodies.
That would certainly explain why you don’t see anything funny about the picture!
The average British family would find that pretty awkward. French families, not so much.
Europe is a continent with many individual and entirely separate cultures, histories and languages. You gotta stop referring to it as one complete entity.
Another know-it-all comment as typical from all Europeans.
that’s the best response i’ve seen in a long time!
Susushii called it Europe, and she’s from there.
Hey, hey! We Americans have worked hard to develop our hang-ups!
I’m going to go ahead and say this one is my favorite to date…Awkward on so many levels. Brilliant.
Do you think those are really hot tub bubbles or maybe the kid in the headgear ate too much chili?
That looks like the garage door behind the tub. I’m sure sitting in the garage adds to the ambience.
I kind of hope mom is wearing a strapless bathing suit.
both kids are in innertubes!! what an awesome photo.
Many things was going through Bobby’s head, but unlike little Timmy, “Thanks mom!” was nowhere on the list.
I hope Mom’s wearing a strapless bathing suit. Or maybe they’re European?
Looks like they wanted to try the Japanese experience. Except for the little boy who’s saying to the photographer, “One of these days, I’ll get you all for this.”
I just hope to god that mom’s got a top on down there somewhere! Might be why headgear kid is so thrilled with the pic…
Love the cheekiness of the young kid though – he’s like “check this out, Daddy-o. I got it goin’ on!”
Except this mom is attractive.
The mom is kinda a hottie hehe
I am going to assume the mother has a strapless suit on.
Love it- the mom is so cute and happy and the kids are just dorky and awkward- like all other kids.
Oh, I really hope they’re wearing swimsuits.
Ahhhhh….a headgear in the hot tub. I had to wear one of those awful things, but thankfully I was never photographed wearing it!
Hilarious! But why is this filed under Family Vacation when they are clearly in the garage? (check the door/track behind Mom’s head)
Not everyone can afford to go over Niagara in the barrrel. Some people have to be awkward right at home.
Ahahahahah.. that’s perfect Megan!!
Rare photographic evidence of the first “staycation”?
LOVE IT. Headgear = majorly hot
Can’t type…laughing too hard! love the kid giving the “I’m number one”! to headgear kid who looks like he just wants to crawl in a hole and die knowing this picture exists!..hahahahaha
OMG…..FANTASTIC! All of it…..especially the head gear! HAAA!
Hot tubbing with mom…ah, good times.
God, I had a headgear just like that. Thankfully no photos exist… I think….
This photo is so complete! There is not a single thing missing!
Kid in headgear floating in an inner tube in a barrel-turned-hottub, obnoxious younger sib, naked mom…totally the definition of “awkward family photo!”
If you could take a picture of a dream, this would be it.
Like those old commercials with Mickey Rooney. Awesome.
I wonder if the mom was wearing a strapless suit or maybe she just kept her bubbles strategically placed. I love the little boy in front, it looks like he is trying to flag down a waiter for a drink. (Of root beer, I am sure.)
Family bath night?
That looks like TWO innnertubes, and a TOPLESS mom. Unless of course she is sporting the eighties strapless suit with some nice neon purple and pink stripes across the middle! LOVE THIS!! Freakin hilarious.
ooooh, in the garage-makeshift-hotub room no less! niiice. : )
OK, let’s see, now…
Hot tub resembling wine grape vat? CHECK.
Pubescent kid with orthodonture that can pick up AM radio stations? CHECK.
Inner tube bigger than tub itself? CHECK.
Obnoxious little brother? CHECK.
Mom resembling a brunette Carol Brady? CHECK.
Yup…totally weird vacation photo!
Carol Brady? More like Carol CHANNING! I keep expecting mom to break out into “Hello Dolly”
This photos is brill.
You say vacation photo, but notice that they’re in someone’s garage.
i dont know, that mom is pretty hot. I’d climb in with her.
I second that motion.
What?? Seriously? I hope you’re being sarcastic!!!! :/
wicked hot mom
The headgear tops it off nicely.
No pun intended??
I used to have night braces like that kid, glad to see it didn’t stop him from getting out there and enjoying life!
Is the kid with the mouth thingy in an innertube?
why is that kid in an innertube?
the kid with the head gear looks really upset about the situation.
It’s really hard to look happy in headgear!
oldest son in head gear, youngest son with a shiner, mom with a cheesy grin & no top all sharing quality time in a hot tub, YEP, that’s awkward!
Is the kid with the head gear in an inner-tube? And if so, WHY?!?!??!?
I just noticed the inner-tube and it made me laugh even harder! This photo is FABULOUS!
He needs to make sure to keep the head gear from wet……orthodontic rust is just the worst!
SO,… I shall continue to just laugh! ~> AH hahahahahahahhaha!
I think the kid with the night brace is permanently scarred.
Him? What about us?
