Then You Grew Up…

Dec 24, 2013. 2013 by Jenn

Let me introduce myself… I’m your mom, Jenn.  I play soccer, go on late night cruises with my boyfriend in his bitching ’76 Camaro, I live out of a backpack so I can go wherever whenever, I love music, and I never turn down a hamburger. I eat whatever I want, don’t gain a pound, …Read More »

About?

This website is for you kids - Austin (born ’92), Kesley (’95), and Sunny (’96) - to tell our barenakedfamily story.

We are Greg (’67) and Jenn (’74), your parents, and we have always spent ridiculous amounts of time together.

Your mom and dad met in ’91 building hot rods.

From ’92-’01 we juggled you babies while tech booming with Dell and Microsoft. It was a big deal.

In 2001 we walked away from it all to find more family time to work, learn, and play together with you full time.
Our one year RV vacation turned into six years and a new life, barenaked.

This website is why you are referred to as ‘the barenakeds‘ or ‘bnf‘ – though ‘not nudists or porn peddlers‘ still comes up. A lot.

This is your parents story about spending ridiculous amounts of family time together.

A lot of people told us ‘you should write a book!’ …so your mom scoured her journals and handwrote her feelings into becoming barenaked.

We also gave you a piece of Kalaloch Driftwood at your homeschool graduation. Other people liked it so much they bought it.

here’s a little longer thing about your story
