Weekly Photo Challenge: Change II

This second post on the Weekly Photo Challenge: Change is self-indulgent.  Everything passes, everything changes but nothing more so than ourselves.  The challenge is to identify the clowns against their grown-up versions.  This might not go down well with those concerned – at least one of my elder sons took exception to an earlier post so probably will not appreciate this either.  Never trust parents with a camera:

Sons of....Sons of....

    Well if we can’t mortify them, what else are we supposed to do with all our free time?

    They still look like clowns (sorry, couldn’t resist) 🙂 🙂 🙂

      🙂 – They have been remarkably quiet about this – perhaps this will prompt a response – 🙂

        I’m just disappointed nobody’s had a go at matching the clowns with the, uh, clowns…

      • northumbrianlight · April 20, 2013

        Obviously too difficult – I keep waiting for something unprintable from Matt 🙂

        So, any response from the 3, or is vesuvius still building up until critical mass is achieved ? 🙂

    • northumbrianlight · April 21, 2013

      Only the restrained reply from Patrick – it is Matt I worry about 🙂

    What beautiful children – and what beautiful young men they have grown into! 🙂

    • northumbrianlight · April 19, 2013

      Thanks, they were and they are – also very well-adjusted and capable.

      • mybeautfulthings · April 19, 2013

        You sound properly proud of them – and that’s lovely to hear. All the best to all of you. 🙂

    So… are they still clowns? 😉

    • northumbrianlight · April 23, 2013

      🙂 They are the best you could wish for (entirely thanks to their mum)

    Great clown faces. Looks like the tall clown in the back is the middle one grown up, and the clown in the middle is the one to the right and the youngest clown is the one on the right with the T-shirt that says Frontier. And, you are, my guess – the youngest one?

    • northumbrianlight · April 25, 2013

      Good try Mary – you got James correct, the youngest clown is on the right grown up (not me though, I am their Dad!). The other two are the other way round. James, the smallest clown, is now the tallest which annoys at least one of the others 🙂

      • Mary Gilmartin · April 25, 2013

        And, I bet you looked a lot like James when you were that age. Good looking kids. And, now reminds me that I have a clown photo somewhere of my youngest daughter posing in front of the refrigerator, Maybe I will try to find it and post that one..Clowns photos are fun.
