Dominic, love the mom and baby giraffe! Such a sweet kiss! The elephant looks ready to take on the world. Thanks for the nice wake up photos.

Tony, what a way to wake up and get started, that dear little fuzzy elephant, the square fish (I didn't know they came that way), mom and baby hedgehog, and the orange butterflies perfectly matched to the flower.

Thank you Tony!
