Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell (Emily) was one cute kid. She just tweeted this pic of herself, along with the line “Blast from the past.” Even then, Shay had the same long, flowing locks and big, bright smile. We wonder what Little Shay would say if she knew she was going to go on to be a model and actress?

The pic shows a young Shay rocking a bright bikini in the water. We’re guessing she was in vacation in the photo as it has the tag “cottage days.” And we love that there is a toy truck in the foreground, proving that Shay didn’t seem to care about silly things like which were “boy” toys and which were “girl” toys. Cool kid!

We wonder if it was having a mini-me on the PLL set that got Shay thinking about her kid-self. All of the Liars seemed to get a kick out of having younger versions of their characters on set filming what we assume will be a flashback. Just check out the Instagram evidence. We wonder how the kids will come into play in Season 4?

Wasn’t Shay adorable? What do you think the mini-Liars flashback will look like? Let us know in the comments below!
