Then and Now

The kids and I have loved going down to the seawall in Suva over the years. There's a bit of a park there and a walking trail along the ocean. The trail passes by the President's mansion on the other side of the street. There's always a guard at the gate that stands perfectly still and the kids' tradition was to always salute whoever was on duty while they walked passed even though he could never respond.

On our last day in Suva before we left in '06 I took a picture of the kids with the guard on duty. So, of course, one of the first things we had to do back on our arrival recently was to take another picture. Here they both are!

Then... (this guard was actually a little on the short side!)

And Now!!!

(Adam is not being 'cool' with his hand in his pocket. He had taken off his belt to pretend it was a whip earlier and had left it there. He's holding up his shorts so they don't fall off!)
