“During our Fourth of July family vacation, this was apparently our patriotic duty…”
“To celebrate the first year of marriage of my father and step mother, they thought it would be a good idea to go on a camping road trip to Colorado in a GMC Jimmy with my step brother, step sister, brother and me (the lovely girl wearing even lovelier glasses), all aged between twelve and fourteen. To this day, we kids call it The Vacation from Hell.”
“We were going river rafting in Canada. The wetsuits they gave us couldn’t have been brighter or more fitted. These were definitely the gawky teen years!!”
Every year we take a family trip to the Embassy Suites in Indianapolis because the kids love Sweety, the resident bird. We always take a family photo with him before we leave. This particular year, we tried several times to get a good picture, but my darling children were not cooperating “sweetly”. Ugh!
“At Universal Studios with my brothers. I must’ve been about 14 or 15, meaning my brothers were around 4 and 10, respectively. Fake vaurnets, OP shirts, tube socks. It doesn’t get any more 80s.”
