Kelsey: 30 years!!!!

A very happy labor day to all and a very happy anniversary to my parents!

Today my parents have been married for 30 years!

Congratulations mom and dad! I was reading some of the things that people are writing about them on Facebook and it made me think about how lucky I am to have such wonderful parents. They are extremely warm, welcoming, generous people who also manage to be very strange...

My dad seriously looks Asian here. They love adventure. On this trip I am pretty sure my mom drank wine with snakes in it.

They also raised some suuuper strange kids.

Why are we all frowning? These pictures are taken in an ice cream shop! See, its so strange! When I was a kid my babysitters always told me that my parents were big hippies. I think it was because they are super laid back and have a huge record collection. They always denied it and it wasn't until I was all grown up that I realized its totally true! They don't like to wear shoes. Sometimes my dad stays in pajama pants all day long. He also had an afro until he was like 30. And he had a huge beard. It was like afro on top beard on bottom, basically a lion mane. Oh they believe that having well organized home is boring. If things are messy then you never know what you are going to find! I saw this quote the other day and it made me think of my mom,  

"A perfectly kept house is a sign of a misspent life." -Mary Randolph Carter 

Also they don't like the government and they are not fans of "the man".  Crazy hippies. 

Congrats mom and dad! I wish all your kids could be at home with you today. We would make you a kick ass breakfast in bed. Hopefully Scotty represents us well. :) Making it 30 years in this day and age is really an accomplishment. I am so proud to have you for my parents. I love you guys!!!!!

ps. your anniversary present is coming... let the anticipation begin building.

pps. Sara and I thought it was your 25th anniversary for like a month. And then we remember I am 26. We thought we had quite a scandal going until we remembered that "Happy 25th Anniversary!" poster that hung on family room wall for like 3 years.
