Looking at the original, you can tell that each of those siblings has a special place in the family. You can also see that they have a very tightly-knit kind of relationship and that they have each other’s back no matter what. Those qualities can easily be seen in the recreation of the photo years later.
The sister on the right quite literally has her baby brother’s back. Some details in the recreation definitely call for an honorable mention, like the brothers on the left wearing the same shirt, and the sister in the middle with her toes showing at the bottom. Great job!
Swing When You’re Winning
Ah, the pleasures of a communal swing. Because let’s face it, who wants to swing along by themselves? Well, a lot of children, actually. But this group of siblings absolutely loved hanging out together on their indoor family swing back in the day.
And it seems that they still can’t get enough of it now that they are adults. Amazingly, the shelves behind them haven’t changed either! We love that they also stuck to the exact same facial expressions. It’s a real talent getting this kind of reconstruction so right. We have to take our hat off to these wonderful siblings.
Smell Me, Everyone!
The little boy in the back seat knew he wasn’t supposed to have his feet up in the back seat, but did so anyway and wasn’t wearing shoes! That could not have smelled great. They had to document this clear disregard for his siblings' noses and the rules, so that one day they could show him what a cheeky monkey he was.
This was a prime photo for recreation and it shows. Look at the rebellious look he has again, and this time his brother and sister are even braver because his feet are big, hairy, and extra smelly. At least it looks like he clipped his toenails. That would be where most people draw the line.
Going on a Road Trip
No matter how old your kids are, there is nothing like a long car ride to help them fall asleep. Something tells us those children were no strangers to road trips and late-night travels to exciting places and camping sites.
This must be why they chose to recreate this picture so many years later. And so well, if we might add! The choice of clothing could not have been any closer! Sure, some things are different, like facial hair or the fact that the little sister no longer fits in the little booster seat, but the sentiment is definitely there.
A True Wild Child
There are some childhood photos that shouldn’t be recreated. Exhibit A is here, but luckily it is hilarious. The original picture is one of the most legendary childhood photos ever taken. Between the insane look on his face, and you know, pulling the Fruit of the Loom tighty whities all the way up there is just pure comic genius.
We salute this guy for having the guts to even recreate a picture that many would be way too embarrassed to have even taken in the first place. You can take the child out of the wild, but you can’t take the wild out of the child. And you probably can’t take that big a wedgie out without notifying a doctor.
