Making Vacation Photos Fun with Ewoks


Photo: Anthony Herrera

How can you make your vacation photos more interesting? Just add Ewok.

That's what geeky dad Anthony Herrera did when he took his kids to the Sequoia National Park in California:

A year ago we took a trip to Sequoia National Park. I wanted to excite my daughter while being in such amazing surroundings. Being the Star Wars geek that I am (so is she), I told her that this is where the Ewoks live. She spent a good chunk of our time hiking keeping a lookout for any Ewoks. Coming home I can’t say that she wasn’t disappointed that we didn’t find any. I had to explain that they are extremely shy and hardly ever let anyone see them. After we got home, and after I had a little time alone with the photos, I told her I thought I saw something strange in a few pictures. We viewed them on the TV to get a larger image. You can imagine how surprised and excited she was when we discovered that we didn’t see any Ewoks, but they saw us, and had certainly taken an interest in her and her little brother. Maybe I’m a little wrong for lying to her and falsifying the pictures, but I don’t care. She’ll never forget the time she spent in the big woods with Ewoks.

I think it's a Santa Lie.

All well and harmless. The little girl gets to have a nice experience and is excited about the ewoks that hid in the bushes and one day when she's older, she'll work it out or have it explained and it will be a nice thing to have happened.

....until you can't help yourself and TELL THE INTERNET.

Next thing you know it's the talk of your town, parents are talking about it in front of their children, then your daughter finds out from someone else that daddy's being playing tricks on her.

I think the internet and the Star Wars nostalgia will still be around in a couple of years. I'd have waited.

Still remember the day my parents told me the truth about Santa Claus. I litterely laughed my ass off. ROTFL type of thing. Don't remember _exactly_ why but it was something to do with how so many kids for so long (me included) were being fooled by this unlikely "hoax". The absurdity of it all dawned on me suddenly I suppose.

Or it could lead to an unhealthy perception of reality. I agree with Rumson - what's wrong with enjoying Nature for its own sake?

Oh that's cute, nd yes I don't think that it's wrong to have a fantasy bestowed onyour child after all several years later they'll be ultra thankful and definitely understand.

Lol as for the ewok eh I don't know I'd rather hav ea champaign and two dubs of a martinee and a gemini c group and also a hedgehog for the pickens between my teeth...
