No amount of wind could stop this family.

THIS IS SOOOO 90s!! I HAD CLOTHES AND JACKETS THAT EXACT SAME MATERIAL AND COLORS WHEN I WAS A KID! the best part is they all match!
So they set off for a 3 hour tour…. the weather started getting rough, the Hornblower was tossed….you all know the rest… reality show starring the Windbreakers
I had the same tracksuit mom’s wearing. This really brings back awful memories!
I remember when those work out suits were all the rage. I never had one. I still feel the pain.
Oh my goodness I have just been thrown back in time. I have 5 brothers and 4 sisters and my mother bought us all these exact parachute jogging suits when we moved from michigan to tennessee to wear on the trip you cant even imagine the looks we got when we stopped to eat and get gas…all of us girls had the one the mother has on and all the boys and yes dad to had the one the guy has on…..and i thought those me,ories were behind us…lol
This is amazing. The caption is the best part!! I honestly laughed out loud for a good 2 mins over it.
My mom use to get me outfits like that when I was little, but my pants were never that high. If this style comes back I hope they don’t make them in those colors.
i kid you not, my sister used to have that same outfit as that little girl. and she would wear it ALL the time. swish swish swish
At least you could keep track of her easily.
I have that pink windbreaker the girl is wearing!!
I’m sure I could find a very similar photo of my family in the 90s. I even had a shell suit very similar to the daughters.
Am I the only one that laughed at “Hornblower Invader”… Ok I need therapy now lol
I keep looking at the little girl on the left waiting for her suit is going to start inflating…
Oh man… I haven’t thought about wind suits in years. That is a style that should come back.. Who doesn’t love getting up and throwing on a wind suit? It is a guaranteed you are going to match and everyone will know you are coming way before you get there.
yes good ole horatio hornblower invades the land of crappy gym jackets in the land of overstuffed buffetts upon the high seas of disapointment!!!
Hahahaha! Thanks. I kept thinking of Horatio too!
The 90′s just punched me in the face.
Ohh, I love the 90′s, I got to boogie, in my nylon wiiiiiindsuit….
(my apologies to alicia bridges)
For the longest time, I thought that song went, “I love the nightlife, Augusta, Georgia”. Don’t know why. Still have trouble sorting it out in my head if I’m not paying attention when listening (and boogieing :D).
They may laugh at the wind, but a naked flame near those suits will have them hightailing it…
I did not even realize until about the 4th time I looked at this picture that the mom is on the right. I thought it was another brother…she is quite asexual in that suit
If only one of these girls had had a good “satellite dish bangs” hairstyle, this photo would be the trifecta of 90′s perfection!
Whatev. That little girl is working that windbreaker suit like no one’s business. I hope she’s still being sassy.
Oh, she is!!
Man. I thought one set of those loud (color and material) jogging suits was bad. I had two or three sets that I wore nearly every day when I was in middle school….in the late 80′s! So glad they weren’t caught on film….(though I did find the outfits when going through some old boxes…still in perfect condition!)
cleary, that’s a stand-in dad/husband
zomg! Nylon Nightmare!
OMG running suits…. WIN!!!
Is it weird that I think Dad looks a little bit like a bulkier Adrian Pasdar? Okay, yes, it’s weird. Sadly, I envied kids like this when I was growing up because we were too poor to own the splendid track suits.
Lucky thing dad was able to take some time off from his modeling job at JC Penney to make this cruise.
I can hear them walking ….. swish swish swish
too funny! the comments are funnier than the picture!
With all that purple and teal, this was obviously the early 90s.
…a three hour tour….
Gee thanks for helping that theme song invade my brain…
Was it a horn-blown invasion?
Hornblower is a company that runs bay tours here in San Diego – and maybe 20 other places for all I know, it’s a nautical name – and we get invaded regularly by tourists. Usually the presence of the Pacific Fleet, the Navy SEALs, and 3 Marine bases is threat enough to keep the Mylar ninjas off land though…
This pic makes me kind of seasick. Dad and the boat are upright with sails furled, but the post and the rest of the family are full sail on a starboard tack.
Dad looks like he’s flexing his glutes or his pecs or something. I don’t think he allows himself to tilt.
I have to admit the little girl is cute as can be. She also appears to be able to bench press 50 lbs more than me.
The lesser know ‘Hownblowers Hut’ sitcom.
They were prepared just in case the weather started getting rough and the tiny ship was tossed.
OMG – there are tears streaming down my face
One of these things is not like the others, One of these things just doesn’t belong…
So glad I’m not the only one who noticed
Her name is Rio and she dances on the saaaand….
Who’s “Captain Obvious” here?
There is w-a-a-a-a-y too much pink and lavender in this family…!
Hey, where is dad’s wind suit? He isn’t “on board” with the rest of the family….
Doing my impression of Lurch right now.
F*** yeah, Jurassic Park….and the wind suit, man I remember wearing those like 4 days a week when I was in like 4th grade…..
can you blow a horn if your going to invade? and wearing those loud clothes???
That is so “awesome.”
Looks like Dad’s going to have to stay inside the boat.
The name of that ship does not inspire confidence. Are they going to war?
Oh that little girl is too cute. I remember my sister & myself putting those HORRIBLE windbreaker outfits on & thinking we were too cool. I love 90s awkward photos-I can sooo relate!
Yes, little Miss Pretty in Pink Windsuit dominates the photo!
I’m pretty sure I had the purple version of that girl’s suit when I was 7!
I can practically hear the rustle of polyester and feel the static charge building up.
Those aren’t polyester, those are 100% genuine nylon, and they are hot.
It’s kinda hard to sneak up on anybody in them, though.
This pictures makes me so happy that there is no photographic evidence of the 3 pairs of running pants that I rotated during college….
I also love that the godawful sunglasses were as bad then as they are now. Did that phase pass quickly last time?
Thank you for acknowledging how awful today’s sunglasses are. I thought I was the only one in the world who felt this way.
I’ve been grumbling about the large sunglasses for a while. I know someday the freaks who wear them now will cringe when they see old photos of themselves.
or fourth, you know whatever.
OMG, I’m crying!
Soooooo awkwarrrrdddd where to begin? How about that epic ship name?
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing! It sounds like a cross between a ferry and a pirate ship.
Nah, sounds like a couple of, err, uh, adult novelty items…..
On the floor! OH MAN YOU HAVE ME CRYIN”!
yes, but any fair sized gust might send the little girl flying like a balloon!
that childs pants are entirely to high
I’m a grown adult (with kids of my own) and my mom would STILL hike my pants up to my rib cage if I let her.
My mom still insists on tucking my son’s t-shirt into his jeans when she visits. :/
How about, “Your hair is in your face, let me put a clippety-clip in your bangs.” And she’s 70, and still saying clippety-clip to her 30-beep year old daughter!
