Go BIG or Go Home
What Happens When A Small-Town Family Visits The "World's Largest"... Whatever!

Who’s Got the Best Caption?

We are surrounded by clever, funny people who read this blog…you know who you are. Today we want your captions for some of these photos from our “Go BIG” travels! Many of these photos never even made it onto this site due to space constraints, but most are on our Facebook page.

When we went to the The Big E fair (world’s largest traveling amusement park), we felt compelled to partake in the specialty dessert, the Big E Cream Puff, and its cousin, the E-Clair. The resulting sugar crash was NO fun.

You’ve all seen the typical Italy vacation photo of the tourist trying to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa through tricky photography. Matt was up for trying something similar at the world’s tallest inclined tower in Montréal.

It was Day One of our holiday road trip to FL, and we were hoofing it to get ahead of a huge snowstorm in NY. Of course, there’s always time to stand the kids in front of a huge paint can! Even if it was 20 degrees out. I would be reminded of this day several weeks later, back home. We were driving past a regular, cylinder-shaped water tower. The Girl (3 years old) innocently asked if we were going to get out and take its picture. Sometimes I wonder what she’ll tell her kids about me.

    I’m going with the girl’s eating, always a favorite of mine and saying “Good to the last lick.” “Finger-licking good.” and “Cream puff you have met your match!”

      That cream puff didn’t stand a chance. When The Girl became weary, her mom stood ready to support her efforts.

    I’m going with the world’s tallest incline tower. Here’s my suggested caption “The sky is falling, the sky is falling!” or “Atlas aka Dad Shrugged” or “I told you not to pack so much in this back pack!” or “Modified Triangle Pose = Traveling Dad’s Best Friend.”

      Triangle pose! Snort! Especially considering he wouldn’t know a yoga pose from Yoda prose.

      Not only is #3 funny, but perfectly captures the spirit of the moment…

    1. “Sweet mystery of life at last I found you.”

    2. “I hope that call to the chiropractor doesn’t mess up my international data plan.”

    (but also, “kick turn three, turn two three” comes to mind)

    3. simply. adorable.

    3rd- Psst…do you think Mom opened up that paint can & took a big whiff? Like, why are we standing in front of this thing? Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

    I loved all the pictures!!
