We could have been in this commercial

We saw this commercial last night and it hit a bit close to home from our trip. Maybe I should have waited the 9 hours in line for my new iphone so I could have had AT&T service.

I will never forget when Annie Kate leaned over to me saying, "mom don't stare but those women don't have tops on"

The joys of over sea travel. We are leaving for Mexico in a few days and I have been formulating what to say when my kids get an eyeful on the beach.

Can't wait to see more pictures of your trip - it sounds like it was a great adventure.

That made me laugh out loud! Can't say she's not perceptive!

My girls were a little older and while in Nice, France said "just because you can go topless doesn't mean you should..."

just so you know, Greece is the same... took a trip there this summer, 12 yr old in tow. Let's just say that she learned alot that trip.

Funny! My 10 year old just saw that... what a funny look on his face. thanks for the laugh!~

That's pretty funny. We had to explain a few things while in France as well!

Marc wants to get an iPhone but is holding out because he doesn't want AT&T service! We have Verizon and we always have service, even in remote places when no one else in the family does... of course, we haven't tried overseas!

How funny! Nothing like a little "worldly education" for Annie Kate eh?

I think AK's age when I was on vacation in Italy with my family and the beach we went to was a topless one.

That is funny, I caught the tale end of that commercial the other day, so I didn't realize it was in Spain. What an interesting trip, eh??

Too funny Kristi, this commercial cracks me up. Even more so that you actually lived it!

Tasha said...

That is too funny! I didn't even think about that! What a shock to your kids American eyes that must have been!

ha ha ha ha ha ha! that cute annie kate, gotta love her!

our friend phil has travelled a lot overseas and stumbled on a nude beach by accident. when he tells the story he explains it like this: "basically i learned that of the world's population, only about .1% of them should ever be naked on the beach." then he shudders! :)

lelly said...

i TOTALLY thought of you when i saw this commercial last night :)

dani said...

hahah Kristi! This is so true! You leave America & it's no longer PG rated...

That commercial is hilarious. What a coincidence that you just experienced that same thing.

Kim Sue said...

:o) I love hearing the little girl off camera "why are they all naked" and the dad just shaking his head like "whatta gonna do?"

charlotte said...

I love that commercial! And that's awesome that Annie Kate gave you a heads-up :)

Melinda said...

I am laughing so hard right now! How funny!

I really want an iphone but have verizon and have to wait till they get one. My whole family is verizon so I need to stick with it.

that is funny...after living in Europe, you actually welcome bathing suits and find beauty in them. I remember vividly moving to Spain, and my mom hauling over my 10 and 14 year old brothers and showing them....the girls...kind of braking them in....my little brother got red and a bit embarrased...oh memories. I think the less of everything I've seen has been in Greece. Although going to Lake Tahoe of all places when I was 22 on a trip with mum and two youngest brothers...we ended up stoping (I was driving) to have a picknic...from the whole circumfernce of the lake, I stopped exactly at the nude beach!....oh my
