Your summer vacation snapshots were pretty and pretty funny, too

Your summer vacations were literally all over the world — Italy and Ireland, middle America and right here at home. We saw photos of beautiful landscapes, smiling faces and simple pleasures.

But the one we found most appealing captured a moment on a roller coaster ride and a priceless look of terror. It’s Rich Gurrieri and his 6-year-old son, Bennett, at King’s Dominion in Virginia.

Getting off the ride, Bennett said, “That wasn’t so bad,” according to mom Tanya Gurrieri. Sure, Bennett.

The Gurrieri family lives on Johns Island.
