First from Abigail:
Then from Zeke:
The poem reads: "Walk a little slower Daddy", said a child so small. "I'm following in your footsteps and I don't want to fall. Sometimes your steps are very fast. Sometimes they're hard to see. So walk a little slower Daddy, for you are leading me. Someday when I am all grown up you're what I want to be. Then I will have a little child who'll want to follow me. And I would want to lead just right, and know that I was true. So walk a little slower, Daddy, for I must follow you".
And finally, a bag of salt water taffy (the best kind of taffy!) and 3 Lego minifigs (the best kind of fig!):
Definitely better than a tie.
