Do we all inherit our family's genes ( not jeans )?

Whom do you resemble most, your mom or dad? I get that a lot, "Wow you look more and more like your father every day" I don't really know the scientific method of how it all works, but growing up showing the same traits and mannerisms of a parent or even like an uncle makes sense to me. What if you found out one day that you were a member of an exclusive club? A Guinness Book Of World Record holder, for you and your whole family?

"How's the weather up there?"

That might be something a question the Trapp family from Northern Minnesota has heard at least once or twice in their lifetime. This family of five could easily start their own basketball team ( ok enough of the jokes ), seriously though according to minnesota.cbslocal.com "The Trapp family was just given the title of world’s tallest family, and at an average height of 6 feet, 8 inches tall, who’s going to argue against the family of five’s claim?"

Imagine the father who is a giant, watches his daughter grow up taller

Heck, the mom is 6 feet, 3 inches, and the shortest member of the household. So the question is - who puts the star on top of the Christmas tree? I'm going to go ahead and guess that Adam Trapp, one of the sons, who is 7 feet, 3 inches, decorates the family roof ( without a ladder ) with lights. Here is the rundown of the whole family:

  • Scott Trapp, father: 6 feet, 8 inches
  • Savanna Trapp, daughter: 6 feet, 8.1 inches
  • Molly Steede, daughter: 6 feet, 6 inches
  • Adam Trapp, son: 7 feet, 3 inches

No word on how tall their family cat is.
