Family and childhood photos capture precious mementos that we treasure. But to spice things up a bit, some families recreate exactly the same scene years later, often with hilarious results.
Here are 23 funny and cute family photo recreations that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
1. The first photo was at elementary school and the second was in 12th grade
2. Twenty years earlier they gave their grandma a photo of her grandchildren for her 70th birthday. They recreated the exact same shot 20 years later for her 90th birthday!
3. First and last day at school - same photo, but over 10 years apart!
