These Awkward Vacation Photos Did Not Go As Planned

There’s no denying or getting around the fact that family vacations can be weird. It’s not so much of the getaway itself but rather the pictures that make things awkward. The finger in the lens and the epic grandfather who photobombs every shoot are just two of many ways that family vacation photos go from sentimental to plain awkward. Here are a few other weird family vacation pictures in the world.

 No one could tell this dad that he was not a professional. He was so focused on showing off his skills that he forgot to remove the retro case from the front of his toddler child’s face. We see the baby’s legs. As for the tots face? Not so much. His feet are cute though.

 Matching is not always the best thing. This family was both color and style coordinated, which probably wasn’t the better idea. The kids, of course, look adorable. As for mom and dad, well, at least they were matching their little ones and the family van.

Survival is real, and this family wants you to know it. They wore matching t-shirts that read delved into their tenacity during what may have been the hurricane of the decade. If you’ll notice, the design of the family’s t-shirts is perfectly coordinated to match the wallpaper that serves as their background. We just don’t know about this.

Can anyone else spot the problem? This father and his sons decided to pose for a candid during a bonding trip. The youngest member of the family appears to be in a bit of distress as he is suspended in the air by what should be a life-saving guard. We don’t think he’s wearing it correctly. Those guards are usually best suited for use in the water.

There are better ways to take a picture. This family lined up from the smallest to largest and decided to strike poses while wrapped around a rail. Why couldn’t they lean on the pole instead of becoming one with it?

There’s a lot wrong with this photo. First, he is smelling flowers while she is doing all the work. Why, pray tell, is he caught up in the beautiful smell of nature while she is carrying buckets and bags? Shouldn’t he be doing that? Second, look at his shorts. This is a bit weird.

 We know they did this on purpose, but still! This family decided to reflect on their Scottish roots instead of following in the way of everyday formal attire when taking a group candid. Did they hang this family portrait on their wall? The candid certainly makes for interesting conversation.

 He’s got the beat! This father is more hip than his kids in the impromptu candid. He’s even got the knee socks that match his shorts belt to prove how cool he is.

 We know this candid is innocent, but there’s something about holding a peeled banana that makes us say, “Perhaps you should have chosen a different pose or fruit to showcase.” Anyway, this dad and his kids are here for the scenery and healthy eating.

 Some things are hilarious. Then, there are those photos that border on the side of offensive. This picture is more of the latter than the former. Unless they are Native American, they have a lot of explaining to do. Awkward meets rudeness? Maybe so.

He wanted to capture the memories. We understand. He leaned against that war machine and struck a pose as if he were wearing a shirt and pants. Confidence has a name that belongs to this man.

The attire was casual, but she didn’t get the memo. This little girl lives for the camera and shows us all how to own what could be an entirely awkward situation. You go, girl!

 They’re smiling while holding weapons and bonding with nature. This may not be the picture that this family wants to put on their holiday greetings card. Just, no.

 He’s excited to be taking a picture with his kids. Both of his girls, however, were not as thrilled for the candid. Get a look at the girl wearing blue and pink. Her outfit is cute, though.

 The family captioned it as the vacation from hell, and we believe them. The little guy balancing the pillow on top of his head is especially telling of the mood. His nose is exposed, so we know that he’s not trying to end it all. We think he’s over the trip, though.

 Oh, our stars! This little girl chose the wrong time to potty train. She was photographed while trying to go to the restroom. Her undies are down and everything. At least her outfit matches the decorations and the like.

 A lot is going on in this candid. We have the couple trying to take the perfect picture all while it appears that people are trying to jump off rocks and fish a bit. Then, there’s the couple’s child who probably needs to be placed in the bed. That body carrier is not working out.

 The average person doesn’t take that much pride in the toilet to take a picture beside it. This family, however, appreciates the value of modern sewage. The kids puckered up and smiled for the camera while standing in front various styles of toilets. Are they at a museum that specializes in these things? Or, are they taking advantage of a trip to their local hardware store? We’re not sure.
