One fun camping activity was to have the teenager take self portraits while Mom and Dad were loading up the car to go swimming. Please note how straight her hair is; it squiggled up into tight curls as soon as it got wet.

Frank wins because he's smoking.
He quit smoking a month later, but that's another story.
Check out our sunburn!
