Miserable In Virginia

Miserable In Virginia - Vacation

“We were on vacation visiting friends in Virginia. It was a very hot day & we were sightseeing. My son clearly was done with the heat, the sightseeing & the fact that he was dealing with three teenage girls.”

Cruise Control

Cruise Control - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is my EPIC family on a cruise in 97′.. my sister is the clock work orange girl and my brother thought he was 2pac although, we grew up in the suburbs..(well he might still think he is straight outta Compton)… My mothers pants.. need I say more? God rest her soul… and we also found Waldo that day (aka my dad).. Not that I’m a saint in my tapered jeans. However, any time my husband questions my sanity.. I pull this bad boy out and am immediately forgiven, having hailed from such a troubled past, I’m not all that bad!!!!!”

Without A Paddle

Without  A Paddle - Vacation

“The adults insisted that we didn’t need a guide to ride down the Nantahala River. The river is considered to have “class III family-friendly rapids.”However, my family were obviously novices. Most of the journey passed without incident, but we were taking on water – lots of it. The falls were the pinnacle of the trip. Dad bounced out the back of the raft. My stepmom jumped out after him while my sister grabbed me and told me to get ready for the camera. That’s us in the front of the boat. My aunt, uncle and cousins tried to steer the rogue vessel ashore to no avail. Men threw ropes from the edge of the river and I remember seeing a sign that read something about dangerous rapids ahead. More ropes dangled across the river, so you could latch on and save yourself as a last resort. It took the remaining adults and some help from the bank, but they managed to beach the raft and everyone made it to safety. Everyone involved tells different stories about that day with varying levels of intensity. For example, my aunt still insists that we were in no danger because ‘a bunch of nuns could do it.’ I’m not quite sure what that means.”

Welcome To Arkansas - Behind The Awkwardness

“During a road trip from Kansas to Florida in 1987, this was my standard pose for all state welcome signs. None more appropriate than Arkansas.”

Overboard

Overboard - Vacation

“We went out for a sail with a group of friends, but one wasn’t really a sailor. When we had to ‘tack’ and the sail changed direction she just lay there until (helped by the weight of her chest) she began to slip head first, screaming, in to the Mediterranean. Thankfully some quick thinkers grabbed her ankles in time. I just reached for the camera to get this classic action shot.”

We Survived A Bear Sniff

We Survived A Bear Sniff - Vacation

“My brother, a bear, and I on our first backpacking trip about 12 years ago in the Glen Aulin backpacker’s campground in Yosemite National Park. My dad took the pic while he was making breakfast, it was about 6:30 a.m. We were startled, and then more in awe, but not scared as black bears don’t bother people unless you’re messing with their kids. The bear walked right past us to our bear proof food canister, sniffed it, batted it around, then walked away.”
