Sometimes, the most relaxing part of vacation is when you get back home.

This may be the single funniest photo I’ve seen in my lifetime. I’ve herniated several organs with laughing, run out of tears, and had my eyeballs pop out of the dry sockets twice.
“Vacation from hell” ——– BWAHAHAHA!
I don’t normally actually LOL when I type LOL, but I laughed out loud for a long time at this! It seems like it would be the picture that gets brought out every once in a while that everyone cracks up badly at. Hilarious and it reminds me of car trips with my three siblings.
We used to travel in a station wagon without *gasp!* seatbelts. So we were bouncing all over in the two back areas of that yellow monster. There were the “she’s touching me!” “I have to go to the bathroom right now!” “Mommy I feel sick” and others. During one of our road trips through Wyoming, she purchased a whip for our horse buggy at home in Vegas. I swear, during a Barbie fight with my sister in the very back end of the car, I felt the end of that thing come whipping from the front and hit my ear. Now, my mom denies up and down that she ever shot it over the back seat, but ….. well, we’ll never know for sure. It did stop the fight.
Love the kid in the back with the budding bro-stach! He seems to be saying we went to Hawaii and I got lei’d!
That mom looks like Sarah Connor!
After having been through this is a kid, I have not subjected my children to this horror. They have more fun hanging out with their friends anyway. Saves money and agravation.w
My dad used to multi-task by driving with one hand on the steering wheel, while swinging his free hand toward the backseat to hit whoever were squabbling at that time, all while keeping his eyes on the road. Like the lady in the photo, our mom would just stare straight ahead like a zombie. P.S. My question is: Who took the photo?
Oh-yeah…memories of family trips to Donner Lake…this photo says it all.
THESE AREN’T MY GLASSES
haha and that kid in the back is out cold. haha. seems like my kinda vacation in the car. 6 people in my family. we rent 6 rooms.
Mom is saying “Just get me the hell out of this car, I need a break from everyone and a drink”! Know her look, been there!
When they got home, Mom or Dad should have had “Vacation from Hell” embroidered on that towel.
This picture makes me laugh. I can’t stop looking at it. I especially love the boy with the pillow on his head…..anything to relieve the boredom I guess!
LOLing hard at this pic!! Been there before as the kid, and later on the parent!!
Mayb mom gave them jst a lil too much niteqile hahaha
The kid on the left seems to be having a grand time. His face it like “What up!?”. This is a hilarious picture. I love it!
I’m sorry but the “vacation from hell” sign just makes this photo…lol. Brings back memories too! Ha!
I hope the kid in the back is just sleeping with his mouth open and not in Stage 1 of a massive car sickness episode. Wouldn’t THAT be fun???!!!
this is what happens when you down size from a suburban to a mini-van
Are we there yet?
When the little guy woke up he said he dreamt that he ate a huge marshmallow. The pillow couldn’t be found anywhere.
It looks like Jaws coming up from behind to eat the whole van!!
We used to take 10 hours trip with all 5 kids in the backseat of our VW! minivan? What’s THAT? I tell my kids they are lucky I only have two and they EACH get a window! Try getting a window with 5 of you smashed together.
We used to trek to Florida in Chevy Cavalier. There were three of us in the backseat. It was pure torture. To make it worse, Dad did not want to run the air and he needed to stop to rest every 2 hours making what should have been a 12 hour trip into a 21 hour trip. Ah, the good times this photo brings to mind.
I’m on a pilgrimage to see a moose!
Look out Walley World, here come the Griswolds!
Oh no! This is no longer a vacation! It’s a QUEST!! Just watched that movie this week. 🙂
Look kids Big Ben, Parliament!
‘… Don’t make me pull this car over…”
My poor parents had to hear. “He violated my air space!”
Why is the DRIVER leaning like that with a pillow over his eyes?!?!
Pretty sure this is a mini van, so two rows of passenger seats
Julie dear,I’m thinking Eiko is having a joke….jay,oh,kay,eih.
You’re related to Derek…aren’t you?
We actually stopped going on vacation because we had vacations like this.
I love the fact that they identified the photo as “Vacation from Hell”…as if they needed to be reminded!
Ford is recalling 120,000 of its latest model SUVs because of faulty airbags.
LOL at the two boys on the right, priceless!
My fave part of this the printed, “vacation from hell” comment in the corner. Hysterical!!!
I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this photo. Best EVER!
her face says it all…
I don’t know the back story about THIS particular trip/family, but I can SOOOOO relate to “Eyes Glazed Over” effect the mom is displaying. It is a coping/defense mechanism used by parent road trippers everywhere to block out the insanity happening in the back seat. I have actually heard, “He’s breathing by me!” and no, I am NOT kidding! By day 2 or 3, this is what we look like! lol Good one!
From my daughter I’ve heard … “Mom – HE’s looking out MY window” … an infraction that, according to her, should be punishable by death.
And then listen to them whine “Of COURSE you won’t do anything about it!” lol
I am laughing so hard with tears in my eyes at these comments@ Momofboys, and JS!!
Good stuff. LOL
So am I!!! OMH … I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe!!! I have had SO many trips like this with my own siblings.
Everyone has had a vay-kay like that! If they say they haven’t … they’re lying!
I haven’t. My family never went on vacation. Thank God.
Me either…..but I have taken my own kids on vacations where I was wearing this mom’s “My brain is out of order and I don’t care about anything until I get home and lock myself in my closet for three days to recuperate” look.
That’s sad. 🙁
Not so sad. With 8 kids in a small car, bad things would likely happen. I think I’m better off for not going :}
Maureen..you are truly blessed then! But if you ever want the experience, I can sure hook you up! 🙂
I haven’t! I loved going on vacations with my family! 🙂 well there was one vacation that we were all wondering where on earth are we and why!? but I wouldn’t say it was the worst vacation.
