25 Totally Awkward Family Photos: Summer Vacation Edition! (Photos)

Oh So Awkward

It’s summer vacation time. Time to have some fun in the sun, frolic with the family, and to take lots and lots of photos. And while you probably would love to have all the pics you take to be mantel worthy masterpieces,  there will always be one or two (or three) that are kind of awkward. And then there are those family vacation photos (hopefully not your own) that aren’t just ‘kinda’ awkward but totally and completely awkward.

The uber-popular site Awkward Family Photos has a huge collection of those uncomfortable and unnerving moments that have been caught on film throughout the years. And here, for you viewing pleasure, are 25 of them – the summer vacation edition!
