Last Spring I bought a hat for my youngest son Casey. When I saw the cartoon Little Bill, I thought it was so cool that his hat had a "B" on it for Bill. Well his shirt has a "B" on it in the picture to the left but trust me, his hat had a "B" as well, I just couldn't find a picture of it online. A couple years ago I bought my son Tommy a Texas Rangers hat because it had a "T" for Tommy. Tommy always referred to it as his "T" hat. So since my wife is a Cubs fan a Cubs hat made sense for Casey.
Here is a picture of Casey wearing the hat out on our patio. But Casey doesn't really like to wear hats, so his "C" hat ended up on the ground shortly after I put it on his head.
However my $5.99 has not gone to waste. Other people have taken to wearing Casey's hat, and on the trip that my family and I took last summer, the hat ended up on several kids' heads in several interesting places. Here are a few of them.
Casey's sister Alina decided she wanted to wear Casey's hat to the Cubs game. We saw the Cubs play the Reds at Wrigley field in early July. Here is Alina in Casey's hat.
Casey's new friend David wore the hat on a trip to Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo. David is the firstborn son of Nick and Rachel. Kim used to baby sit for Nick when he was little, now Kim and Nick have kids about the same age. Here is David in Casey's hat.
We visited Casey's other cousins in Atlanta on our trip. Most of Casey's cousins live close to us in California. J.D. is the oldest of Casey's cousins and he took a liking to Casey's hat as well. Here is J.D. sporting Casey's hat at the top of Stone Mountian in Georgia.
Casey's brother Tommy loves to wear hats. He managed to find Casey's hat when we made our final site seeing stop of our summer road trip. Here is Tommy wearing Casey's hat at the rim of the Grand Canyon.
