Seriously, do you know a child in the world who doesn’t like ice cream? Because we don’t! Children literally scream for ice cream. That’s why it’s called ice cream in the first place. Didn’t you know? These siblings got the memo all those years ago. They loved themselves some bubblegum-flavored gelato back in the day.
Don’t you just love painting your tongue sky-blue with some creamy, refreshing goodness? And who says that has to stop at childhood? These siblings continued this tradition well into their 30s. And we think it’s safe to say that they’re not the only siblings to have done this.
Smile for the Camera... or Don't
A parent's and a child's ideas of picture day may not always go hand in hand. Not all kids react well to a camera or to the unfamiliar environment of a photo studio with a stranger who insists on making them smile. Sometimes they're just not having it. Good thing they can laugh about it when they are older.
It is quite possible that the studio where these siblings took their first picture still exists. Where else would they find a place that has the exact same backdrop? Also, props on bringing a teddy bear and on styling the baby brother's hair and sailor suit.
We're Going to Need a Bigger Bowl
Just like every house has a good ol’ laundry basket, so does it have a nice big mixing bowl. And like the laundry basket, small spaces in the kitchen are great for taking snaps of young kids. Nothing says I love you, son, or daughter, like putting them in the dishwasher to take a few photos!
It may sound nuts, but parents have to take advantage of their kids’ small size while they can and you definitely can’t argue with the results. Time is of the essence and the opportunities won’t last forever. Look at this recreated childhood picture and long gone are the days when he could fit into that mixing bowl, and while he may not be as small and cute as he was in the original, the new photo is absolutely awesome.
Memories in the Sand
As tradition dictates when at the beach, you must bury your friends or siblings in the sand. It is the rules, and these kids followed them. When they were children, these kids went on a trip to the beach and buried each other up to their chins in the sand. Perhaps it was done by mom and dad who probably did it to keep them in the same place for once.
None of the kids look too excited to be where they are, though. Maybe the idea of getting buried in the sand is better than actually being buried in the sand. Either way, it certainly made for a great original photo and an equally good recreation.
Little babies make the weirdest faces. They have all those new muscles to figure out, which is how we get a picture like the one on the left here. This sweet little two-month-old baby is an emoji in human form. This picture looks like it would fit well in a scrapbook along with a picture of the baby's first step and the first time he got his hair cut.
We do, however, doubt that there is a scrapbook big enough to include the rest of his pictures until he turned forty. The unique combination of his baby-self facial expression and his older adult facial hair makes for a hilarious side-by-side comparison.
