I am the only blonde in my family as well, all my aunts and uncles and grandparents were dark brunette. I have one other cousin that is blonde as well, that is it. Just two of us out of a sea of brunette.
I asked once if maybe we shared the same milk man... the joke didn't seem to go over that well LOL.
We dealt with this in science class, just the odd cumulation of recessive genes coming together and even then you have only a 1 in 4 chance of getting a child with the recessive gene in a dominant role.
I am sure there are others on here that could explain that better than me...
