Looking at old photo albums makes me think that kids were way cooler back in the day. We built majestic snow castles in our backyards, climbed trees, wore fashionable sunglasses and had crazy haircuts. I think it's safe to say that most of us were about a hundred times cooler than we are now.

Share your cool childhood pictures and bring those old days back. The best pictures will later be featured in a separate post that will be shared on our Facebook pages, so give yourself the chance to become Internet-famous.

There is a similar picture of me somewhere. I ride a tricycle or a bike with training wheels and I have a lollipop in my mouth so it looks like I am smoking a cigarette. My brother always shows it to other people and tell it is a picture of his 'juvenile criminal sister'. :D

There is a big chance a small grey not even 1kg rabbit hides in the tent, which means a 60 kg newfoundland dog hides behind my mom in fear of the small grey furball that might hide in there.
