Vacation

Another Mine

“Dad loved to visit mines and quarries. The rest of the family had little choice but to go along for the ride. Apparently, we rebelled by pulling our sweater sleeves far out of shape. Despite the mandatory rubber outfits and helmets, Mom always looked stylish.”

Shell Game

“We are visiting ‘Crocodile City’, and after seeing the crocs and snakes, the kids asked to pet the roaming tortoises. We obliged and then turned to see them watching a pretty racy show!”

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.”

Renaissance Regrets

“I lived in Luxembourg as a kid so my family did a lot of traveling in the five years we lived there.  In looking through the pictures, it was obvious that my siblings and I were not happy campers on this trip to Italy as we all refused to smile in every picture. I’m sure my Dad thought it was hilarious to have his eight-year-old daughter pose in front of a fat naked man sitting on a turtle.

The statue is ‘The Fountain of Bacchus’, sculpted in 1560 by Valerio Cioli. He used Duke Cosimo I’s court dwarf as the model for Bacchus. If you want to see the statue today, or take your own picture with it, it’s at the Boboli Gardens in Florence, Italy.”

The Scoop

“My daughter pooped in the ocean and her uncle fished the turds out in a net an hour later.  That’s my sister in the background.”
