Well, that two and a half years went by fast since little Steve was born.

We got a surprise visit from my cute sister, June, while I was there. It lifted both our spirits. Thanks so much for taking the time to come over that day, June.

I bought it with the intention of bringing it home and doing this to it:
I know, I know! : )
