  5. Lauren I think that is possibly the BEST Father's Day present I have ever seen in my life!

  6. Love. It.

    I want to be your dad, just to get that book! But that would be weird, for a number of reasons, so I will just be happy for your dad, and jealous for mine, who is just receiving a large bottle of gin.
