We’ve all been there: Shepherded out of the car at a rest area or attraction, forced to stand in a line with our family members, encouraged to smile despite the fact that we might not actually be having a good time. That’s what family vacations are all about: Capturing some awkward and uncomfortable photos.
The 27 vacation photos below are uncomfortable, but they’re also pretty epic. Each them them feels like a little window into a vacation that was either going really, really well or really, really badly. You’ll laugh out loud at some of these — and they may even remind you of your own family vacations. #16 is absolutely hilarious.
#27. When in Pisa.
#26. Mickey got way too into this.
