What a sweet post. He is going to love that! Not a huge fan of the mullet, but whatever made him happy. I have a mac and love mine, you should think about getting firehubby one.

I hope you have an excellent weekend. I think that him carrying pictures of you guys in his helmet is amazing. He adores you guys.
