Fun Family Friday - Amazing Commuter Family

I'm trying to add a little levity (and variety) to INFO for Families. My biggest idea (after about seven seconds of thought) is to introduce "Fun Family Friday." Yes, it's a goofy name, but I wanted to be crystal clear as to what it is. It's fun. It's related to family. It happens on Friday. 'Nuff said.

Fridays are usually happy days, so I'm doing my part to celebrate by making them 1.9% even more happy for you, my faithful readers. I will aim to post something related to family life that will (hopefully) make you smile. Today's entry should do the trick.



MotorcycleWhen my family of seven piles into our faithful Toyota Sienna minivan for a road trip, we feel crowded. But after seeing this family of nine in action, I have a new-found appreciation of my van's spacious comfort. 

I wonder if the poor girl in front lost a game of rock/paper/scissors with her siblings and thus had to serve as the windshield for the rest of the family. I wonder if the woman on back is looking ahead for danger...and if she sees any, what on earth she plans to do about it. I wonder if the writing on the bucket says "Graco."

Please comment with suggested captions for this photo. I'd love to hear what you come up with.

On an entirely unrelated note, I'd like to invite you to become a subscriber to INFO for Families. Just think, many casual readers missed seeing this incredible picture, but our hundreds of faithful subscribers had it delivered directly to their inbox.
