HONEY Boo Boo and her family enjoyed some fun in the sun, away from the looming shadow of Mama June, as fans continue to worry the teenager is growing up too fast.

The 16-year-old was joined by her older boyfriend Dralin Carswell, 20, and sister/de facto mother Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Efird and her husband Josh.
The family vacation was completed by Pumpkin’s newborn twins Sylus and Stella, along with her other children Ella, four, and Bentley, 11 months.
Alana wore a pair of pink shorts and a white T-shirt and was seen laughing as she held little Bentley.
She played the role of doting aunt, taking careful care of the newborns.

The family snaps circulated online, where many fans were too distracted by Alana’s appearance to focus on the newborns.
One commenter wrote: “Alana’s lashes are a LOT and her nails!”
Another added: “It’s hard to look at anything but Alana’s ridiculous lashes.”
A third commenter agreed: “Obnoxious eyelashes are the latest trend. My nieces walk around looking like they are about to take flight I just look at them and smh.”
Alana has been spending a lot of time with her sister, as 22-year-old Lauryn was recently awarded full custody of the teenager.
Lauryn was granted guardianship due to Alana not getting the proper care from their mother, June “Mama June” Shannon.
June, 42, who struggles with drug addiction, has been estranged from her daughters.
But life with Pumpkin may be no slice of pie either.
PUMPKIN’S MONEY PIT
The Sun can exclusively reveal that the young mother has been struggling to provide for her unexpectedly expanded family.
Several factors have come to light regarding the 22-year-old’s financial situation.
One family insider claimed that “Pumpkin told June she didn’t have any groceries in the house, and she told Pumpkin ‘Well you better get on TikTok and make some d*** n money.”
The source added incredulously: “Why would a mother even say something like that?!”
And the L.A. trip could be pleasure and business, as the television stars are hosting meet and greets, with tickets going for $25 a pop.
The sisters also reportedly have a meeting lined up with some Hollywood bigwigs about getting their own spin-off reality show.
The family is currently on Mama June: Road to Redemption airing Friday nights on WeTV.

While fans of the show Mama June: Road to Redemption assume the long-standing reality stars make a good living, in an interview with The Sun in May, Mama June, 42, claimed “What a lot of people don’t realize that this filming doesn’t pay what people think it does.
“We all have regular entrepreneur jobs after filming- like [my daughter] Jessica works at a daycare. Josh works with a friend of ours. We have events that we go out and do.”
