Vacation

Man Down

“This photo was taken on a trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. My daughter is posing with all smiles, and my son is tipping his kayak over after a big wave hit him! I’d say perfect timing on my part.”

Mermaids In Front

“This photo was taken on an Easter trip to Florida in April 1971, where we visited the Weeki Wachee Springs and saw the Mermaid Show, which I loved. I think our dad had my younger sister and me pose with these ‘mermaids’ in order to have an excuse to take a picture of the women.'”

The Puffy Jacket

“My mom when she was younger went on vacation and the hair and jacket are worth a thousand words.”

Sonny’s Share

“It was the summer of ‘68 or ‘69 and my mom (holding her cousin) was in Las Vegas with her Aunt and Uncle to babysit their kids while they went to see Sonny and Cher in concert. Sonny and Cher stayed at the same hotel as them (Sahara) and were casually lounging by the pool one afternoon. Sonny obliged for a photo op with my mom and her cousin.”

The Accidental Tourists

“This is myself, my mother, my dad, and my little brother at Disney World in 1985. I think we could be a close second to the Griswolds.”

Disney Drama

“1985, Disneyworld. I’m the pouty little girl in the bunny hat, next to my sister and cousin and in front of my parents. I don’t remember what happened but it sure seems like I did or said something inappropriate before the photo was taken.”

Oh, Canada

“This is a photo of my cousin, her brother and dad. She’s not sure exactly where it was taken. Obviously at a lake, and somewhere in Florida. Funny thing is (other than my uncle selecting this boat to pose for a picture with his kids) my aunt was the one taking the pic. My cousin sent this to me saying, “Wouldn’t this be perfect on Awkward Family Photos?” Why, yes. Yes it would.”

The McTourists

“This is my family touring in Germany back in the 80’s. If we were anymore blatantly American, we would have been wearing American flag pants and “I Love America” t-shirts. I’m the one in the blue pants hiked up nice and high. Guess I wanted to make sure everyone saw my socks with Jellies.”

Prawns Away

“Nothing quite like a great Australian summer. With prawns.”
