30DBC : Day 4

Day 4 : your parents
Well, here they are - my tri-lettered parents, Bob & Pam!
(Papa, me and mama in Navarre Beach)

My parents have been together for 28 years! That's a rarity in today's society!

Some of my fun facts:
- my parents always called me Fred for some reason... Bucket Head Fred to be exact
- I got my addiction passion for travel from them, I can't remember a year that we didn't take atleast one family vacation
- they used to always have parties when us kids were little... I remember the stereo in the living room would be so loud you couldn't even go in there. Every time I hear a Steve Miller Band song I say "this reminds me of my childhood!"
- my parents have a very 'do it yourself' attitude. I'm pretty sure between the two of them they can scheme up, build or fix anything.
-because of their jobs I love any smell that reminds me of a car body shop or a hair salon! (Yep, brake parts cleaner and perm solution get me every time!)
-everyone thinks my dad is "hilarious" and my mom is "so creative!"
-they pretty much rock
-I'm their favorite child ;) (Just kidding bubby!)
