He did so good-- a surprise AND something I've been wanting for a while. Thanks, Babe--I love it! It perfectly matches the sign we already have:

No, I don't always stand at the door waiting with camera in hand, ready to snap, silly. I made Julie take him back, ran to get my camera, and these pics are from take 2....with tears in my eyes. What a special, sweet surprise this was. Riley was so proud. (p.s. Those weren't Mommy's flowers like you may think, they were "mine.")
