The prime minister is on his first visit to the U.S. since being sworn in last fall. Most of the anticipation about the trip is towards the state dinner — the first held for a Canadian leader in 19 years.

But on Wednesday, the photographers couldn't keep their lenses off of two-year-old Hadrien at Andrews Airforce Base.

Hadrien danced around his father's legs as a military band greeted the family, including wife Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, as well as the couple's older children, Xavier and Ella-Grace.

Students from Patterson Elementary School greeted the family with flying flags from both countries and handshakes.

Hadrien, however, preferred to dole out some high fives.

The toddler was sporting a simple grey golf shirt with pants very similar to his older brother's. And we have to say, we love his tousled curls.
