Jennifer Garner Shares Childhood Photo of Herself Fishing (and She Used to Rock a Serious Ramona Quimby Haircut)

It's always a good day when our fave celebs share major throwbacks, whether it's Sofía Vergara's old modeling pics or a young Zoë Kravitz singing “No Scrubs” on set at VH1. Now, The Adam Project star Jennifer Garner has posted a rare shot from her childhood, and suffice it to say we're obsessed.

The 49-year-old actress posted a photo of herself (where we're guessing she couldn't be older than 6) and wrote in the caption, “Someone I love: little Jen.” In the snap, Garner is seen rocking a very Ramona Quimby pageboy haircut, along with a red top featuring Raggedy Ann and blue jeans to round it all out. Young Garner also holds up a fishing line, seemingly very excited about having caught something.

In the rest of her caption, Garner said, “Chances are good that I caught this fish because Uncle Robert pointed out exactly where it would be hiding in the pond on the family farm. @onceuponafarm.”

We weren't the only ones who loved Garner's pic, with her followers writing things like, “You are the cutest” and “So adorable.”

On top of her pic, Garner also tagged the company Once Upon a Farm, which she helped co-found. This all-organic distributer is dedicated to providing farm-fresh snacks & meals for babies and small kids (and Garner clearly thought this company's aim fit well with the theme of the photo).

This isn't the first time Garner has given us a peek at her childhood days (or her bowl cut). Last April, the 13 Going on 30 star shared a snap of herself posing on a gymnastics mat as a kid. In her caption she said, “A little namaste for your flashback Friday.”

We know you've got kids of your own to raise, Jennifer, but please keep these childhood pics coming.
