racing dawn said...

so awesome...looks like a postcard!

and it looks like that lady just put down her cigerette and is now waiting for the 'lucky' slot machine your dad's leaning on...

your parents are stylin' for sure... :)

Dash said...

I don't know how people lived in black and white back then.

Sarah said...

Sweet, sweet blackmail. I think you look like your mom. :-D

Rae said...

Yes, that lady does look creepy! I always like looking at people in the backgrounds of my pictures. I always like when the people are smiling for the picture too. :)

Kevin and Kim Partridge said...

Oh, you're in trouble now, sista! She's going to be soooooo mad at you. They are not actually gambling in the picture, rather, they have found a spot to rest their weary hands. I'm a shoe in for her favorite now!

Aimee said...

That picture is so awesome! When I was back in AZ in November, my sisters and I went through some old slides (yes slides!) of my parents when they were younger before they had us, and they were amazing!! I loved looking at them all!

Love this classic pic of OUR parents :) . . . I'm gonna show my kids this as a good reminder of where we ALL got our good looks from . . . and our humility!

hehehe :)

Kovas said...

Wow, I had such a good comment, but I had to erase it when I realized it was your parents. Opportunity wasted, shame.

Jamoosh said...

Lady Gaga and your parents in the same post - um, not working.

Good try though.

Emz said...

Kovas. At. My. Parents. Place. Now.

They
Loved
Your
Comment.

Char said...

Love the photo! And you know that they told you not to gamble because of their own heart-breaking experience. You see - once they were multi-millionaires and they frittered most of it away on the pokies ...

Kate said...

Your parents are awesome!

ShutUpandRun said...

I know, I know. You and me we would tear it up and you could teach me to wear heels. Because otherwise it would be emz and the midget in vegas.

TRI714 said...

THAT IS AWESOME, YOUR PARENTS ARE FLORENCE HENDERSON AND BUZZ ALDRIN !!!!
I want a freakin shirt please !!!!!!!!!!

Morgan said...

Priceless!

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

Whoa ... that lady in the back looks like she is going to go postal on your parents???? WTF?

Karen R said...

LOL! Awesome picture!

Don't you love finding out things about family? :)

ajh said...

Hey, that's me behind them.

DRog said...

What a photo!!!
super cool to have a shot of your parents like that...great smile mom:)

Chris K said...

The picture of the lady in the back is almost as creepy as Kovas' in his RUN EMZ shirt. Don't worry, I'll give RUN EMZ the respect it deserves.

The Green Girl said...

That. Seriously. Rocks.

Silly Girl Running said...

Haha! You're parents sure look like they are enjoying themselves!:)

And that lady in the back...she looks like a ghost: creeps me out!

Johann said...

Nice one! Any idea what year this was?

Karine said...

The year was 1969; the trip was a friends/reunion get-away; the gambling consisted of losing $1.00 in the slots. The blouse definitely "vintage". And, yes, the lady in the background creeped me out too!!!

fancy nancy said...

Classic! That lady is very creepy behind them!

Stacey (aka Ultraprincess) said...

It is a great pic.... and the lady is most likely a serial killer. Yipes!!! You're so lucky your parents made it home alive :)

Laura said...

Oh god...I just love this!!

gmontalvo13 said...

Caroline said...

Big Daddy Diesel said...

You should blow that pic up and frame it and give it to them as a gift

Stacie said...

Love this :)

The Kornegay Family said...

Just looking at this picture again and saw that mom had made a comment . . . hmmmm, 1969 and I was born in 1970. Either mom was already pregnant with me, or maybe it was an exceptionally nice get away! Who knew I could have been conceived in Vegas. That's why I have such good luck, huh?!? :)

Just a thought . . . :)
