Azriel the aviator.

So do you think this is what Amelia Earhart looked like as a toddler?
Either way, all I can imagine here is Azriel saying "to infinity and beyond!".

I thrifted this hat the other day in a paranoid attempt to ensure my daughter doesn't get pneumonia from this weekend's camping trip.  We're going with a crew of 13 adults and 16 wee ones from our church family (I did this alone with Azi last year... thankfully Ben is joining us this time)
.  I wanted a warm hat for Azi now that Fall is creeping into our bones... and for fun I added the extra 'goggle feature'.  Guess how many times I broke the thread (and then the sewing needle) before clueing in that I should switch to a leather/vinyl needle?! Oy.

And this, this is Azriel's face when mama says "smile".... I don't know where she gets it from. 
And that, well that's just the cutest mischievous aviator in training I've ever seen.
I think it's safe to say Azriel's entire outfit today has been thrifted.
And, since it's Thursday we're going to fly this post on over to 'Small Style' at Mama Loves Papa too!
Thanks for stopping in friends,
Mel ;o)
