Father and Son Recreate 35 Year-Old Photo And Instantly Go Viral

This photo op will hit you right in the feels.

Minnesota dad Aaron Brown recreates winter snowstorm photo with his son that he took with his dad on the same day 35 years ago.

On April 14, 1983, Aaron Brown of Minnesota posed for a photo with his father during a massive spring snowstorm, holding a piece of cardboard that bore the date of the freak weather event.

Exactly 35 years later, an all-grown-up Brown recreated the same photo to a tee with his own young son.

Brown posted the photos on his Twitter account, with the caption, "History repeats itself. My son and I today, Dad and me 35 years ago to the day. " They quickly went viral, and currently have almost 38,000 retweets and over 255,000 likes.

And many are impressed with the little details that show the lengths to which Brown went to get the photo exactly right. Even the windshield wipers of both cars are halfway up! Or was that a cosmic coincidence?

People are also hoping this becomes a family tradition passed down from generation to generation.
