A father-son duo recreated a photo from 20 years ago to share a special Father's Day moment.. The photo has since went viral,  after being shared thousands of times on facebook.

Auburn, Washington Police Department shared two photos of Officer Andy Gould and his son Michael. In both photos, the two are seen striking the same pose,  with Michael sitting on the lap of his dad in a squad car.

In 1998, Michael wrote a Father's Day card that said, "When I get bigger I'm going to be my Dad's partner and catch bad guys and burglars."

Two decades later, Michael squeezed his 6'7" frame onto his dad's lap to recreate their photo, this time after following his footsteps into law enforcement. Michael currently serves as a King County sheriff's deputy.

"Recreating the photo 20 years later was a wonderful tribute to father and son," the department said on Facebook. "Hope all you fathers out there had as wonderful a day as our own Officer Gould!"
