    Sarah we loved spending the day with you and cannot wait to see you again in September! You are so talented and every one of these photos is so special to us. Thank you!

  2. Gogit says:

    I hope the brother wasn’t disappointed by the lack of fresh lobster in landlocked Luxembourg!

  3. Caitie says:

    Haha, my brother does this! But then my parents won’t take the picture until he gets closer and stops being so immature.

  4. John Tiefenbacher says:

    Don’t stand… don’t stand so… don’t stand so close bei mir (aus Luxembourg)!

  5. Bill Shirley says:

    The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg: only kinda neutral.

  6. Macey says:

    leaving room for the Holy Ghost!

  7. srarah says:

    at this point (if it were me and my sister) my mom would scream about family time and to stop being brats. But we still do it mostly to mess with her.

    It’s actually a scene from a young Michael Moore’s first documentary, “Luxembourger & Me.”

  9. Missy says:

    Yes – you can clearly see how tight they are. Today they probably contact each other through electronic devices only.

    I know. You think, why couldn’t they find some place more interesting to pose in Luxembourg? But, no, this was pretty much it.

    He’s touching me!!!

  13. Anne says:

    Such a protective older brother, making sure that the lobster can’t bite her.

  14. Nicole says:

    As the girl in the picture, I can assure you all…it was as majestically awkward as you are imagining.

    • Brian says:

      The confident look on your face and your body language (chin out, great eye contact and relaxed arms) show your self assurance. You were the boss of him! 🙂

    I don’t know what everyone’s complaining about. This is a great pose – if they were closer together, I would’ve had to go all the way to Luxembourg (or its neighbor Wikipedialand) to find out how many stars are on the European Union logo.

    Tommy looked at the picture of him, his older brother, and younger sister. Noticing that the image of his older had disappeared was warning that he had done something to interrupt the time/space continuum. How would he ever get his mom and dad to kiss at the “Under the Sea” dance?

  17. Jennifer says:

    His right arm is a little blurry- like he was told at the last minute to put his arm around his sister and he just leaned over a bit.

  18. Duygu says:

    Invisible sibling is in the middle of ’em.

  19. Margo says:

    Awwww, Mom, do I hafta touch her!??? It’s bad enough sitting in the backseat with my little sister on this whoooooole vacation, and now you want me to do what? How ’bout if I just act like I’m putting my arm around her, k Mom?

    In order to forestall any unwarranted assumptions, I will point out that that kid can’t possibly be from Maine. Shirts like his are sold only to tourists and are specifically reserved for their use. It is illegal (a violation of the good taste laws) for any Maine resident to possess one. The penalty is two to five years in New Jersey.

    the last team to arrive …. may be eliminated.

  22. MuppetKiss says:

    *Snif* it’s so beautiful.

  23. Amy says:

    I hear Luxembourg is famous for their lobsters.

    • John R. says:

      I remember those cartoon lobster shirts were very popular in Cape Cod Massachusetts during the ’90s. May still be.

  24. John says:

    Fans get pic taken with Invisible Man

  25. Brian says:

    Taking all the necessary precautions against contracting kooties from his little sister, Johnny is about to dash to the washroom to wash his hands.

    • scruffy says:

      Did you notice that he is just barely touching her & then it is with his fingertips only. Ah gross. Lil sister? Eeew.

      Little does he know that there is no protection from little sisiter kooties. They can leap six inch gaps and then you are doomed.

  26. Chewy says:

    I just wanna get close to you….

  27. leonie says:

    Hahaha..Feel the love!

  28. m says:

    touching both borders at once!

  29. Tim S says:

    She’s now got brother cooties.

  30. Riss says:

    Okay I just about died at that caption.
