Sometimes Parents Aren't Awesome At The Swing Game

1 - 2 - 3 - Wheee-oh-no!

Exhale. No children were harmed in the making of this family photo.

Mom and dad wanted something candid to complement shots they'd already posed for -- and hoped to raise their kids' spirits by swinging them through the air. Only mom wound up just a little too hard and baby did a back flip. Dad explained the whole story on Reddit. Luckily, he said, the boy landed on his back, in the soft sand, and wasn't hurt.

Maybe we keep everyone's feet on the ground next time though?
