Before the fanny packs and Andrea Bocelli concerts, your parents (and grandparents) were once free-wheeling, fashion-forward, and super awesome.

Those are some great pictures. Sometimes it's hard to imagine parents before the kids but pictures are always a way to remember - for better or for worse. LOL

I love this! I just clicked through all the photos and I just love the super vintage ones. Some peoples parents were awesome. I especially like the ones where the women look very badass and cool.
