« Back to Virgin America Awkward Family Vacation Contest

“This picture was taken at the now-defunct/-abandoned Dogpatch U.S.A theme park in Arkansas on one of our many family road trips in our version of the metallic pea Wagon Queen Family Truckster – our bulldog maroon 1979 Ford LTD. I’m the smug one resting my hands on the barrel of a prop rifle pointed at my face. My mother is exasperated from dealing with my brother who cried throughout the dress-up process, ultimately refusing to wear his hat. My father was actually into the picture, which appeared on the mantle above the fireplace in our house for years. After our photo shoot, he led us on a raid of the local Stuckey’s for pecan log rolls. Good times.”
