Every parent knows how fast their kid grows up. It seems like one day you’re changing their diaper and the next day they’re asking you for $30 to go to a concert. That’s why it’s important to cherish every moment you spend together – and Chinese father Hua Yunqing know all about cherishing moments. The man has an annual tradition of taking photos with his daughter Hua Hua in the same spot and has been continuing it for 40 years!
He had the first picture taken when he was just 27 years old and initially did not have any plans of turning it into a tradition. And once he saw the picture, he quickly made up his mind and decided to return to the same spot next year and repeat it, said the man in an interview with Daily Mail.
There’s only one time when the family missed the picture, in 1998 when Hua Hua was abroad.
Hua Hua had her first daughter in 2008 and her second one in 2012 and the whole family happily continued the tradition. “When I started, I never guessed that I’d still be doing this when I was in my 60s and my daughter is now no longer alone, she is a mother-of-two,” said the father. Let’s hope we see many more pictures in the future!
