    Meanwhile in eastern Kentucky

  2. This cracks me up! What family would go to this extreme????!!!!!

    To me, this is a perfect example of the way this site gets nasty. This is a completely non-awkward photo of a family having fun. Bizarre clothes, weirdly stilted poses, various inappropriate public behaviors–fine. But when a mundane picture of a family playing in kiddie pool elicis mocking laughter, I’m out.

    • J says:

      Five people in a kiddie pool is awkward (unless they’re very small), no matter what the relation to one another is.

    Heh, when Slip’n’slides were all the rage, my sister and I made one using a kiddie pool, a garden hose, and one of the rubber/plastic runners people used to place over their hallway carpets to keep them clean. Our backyard, fortunately, was on a slight incline.

    This reminds me of that.

    • V. says:

      Our backyard was the same way, only the incline was more than slight. We set up one of those makeshift runner slides, my mom tried it, and…minor concussion, anyone? Very thankfully, she regained her short term memory function quickly!

    New Level 5 water restrictions – you can only wash the kids and your laundry on every odd day and all in the same tub. (People from Australia would sympathise!)

    i don’t understand the caption!

    That kid looks like Daniel Tosh!

  8. JerseyPam says:

    There’s too many kids in this tub
    There’s too many elbows to scrub
    I just washed a behind
    That I’m sure wasn’t mine
    There’s too many kids in this tub.

    The family gene pool.

  10. Elizabeth says:

    This is definitely one of the most awkward photos in some time. Kids love it when you do that with the slide, though.

  11. JerseyPam says:

    Mike’s freshman year Spring Break really sucked.

  12. kimbly says:

    Too many butts in too little water… O_o

  13. Jeff says:

    “Is it just me, or is the water getting warmer?”

  14. Kelsey says:

    I love how the oldest kid is just like “Oh. My. Gosh.” And if it were recent? The mom would probably be saying “Yep, this is going on facebook.” 😀

    • Lydia says:

      This is actually a picture that my oldest brother posted. He’s the one that’s just like, “Oh. My. Gosh.” I’m not in the picture ( I wasn’t born yet ) But I still made sure this was on facebook 😉

  15. Bucksnut says:

    Looks like Anthony Hopkins.

    Saturday night = bath night

  17. Harry says:

    Good one!! The boy on the right seems embarrassed beyond words!

  18. Whoa says:

    “I’ll never let go, Jack!”

    “Give it a rest, Dad.”

  19. Officeslacker says:

    Everyone seems embarrassed to be there except the dad. Even the baby!

  20. Bonnie says:

    Just a hot day in the south.

  21. justme says:

    At this point, if that were my husband, he would proudly announce that he was about to “turn this thing into a hot tub” by “making bubbles” and all the kids would run away screaming.

    Wait….you mean this isn’t the average family’s Saturday afternoon?? 🙂
