Yay, A New Train Hat!!

That was Oscar's reaction when I opened up the box we got in the mail today. He's quite excited to have a new toy. Although, he'll only get to play with it when Daddy's home. Because the rest of the time, he'll be wearing it to work!

I'm rather excited to get to work sewing on these patches so he can wear the cammies. He actually looks military in them, unlike the gas station attendant uniform he's been wearing. Oliver said it was ridiculously hot, however. Summer may be the pits here wearing this. Needless to say, we didn't bother ordering the GoreTex jacket (which is also the most expensive piece so I'm not sad we could skip it). Good thing he works in an air conditioned office.

My husband just purchased his yesterday. He said they are very comfortable. They aren't my favorite uniform because I think they look sloppy, but I can see getting away from "the plumber" look too. Those were bad. It just looks strange to see him in cammies.

Definitely a different look for the guys but I did get a laugh out of watching Chris get his cover to stand up all poofy and tall like it's supposed to. Apparently, his dad taught him to get the hat damp, set it on a coffee can (or flour tin) to help with the shape, and then place in the oven to bake it into place. Um, okay. :)

Thankfully it's such a mild winter that we were able to totally skipped buying the GoreTex jacket as well. Whew.
