We're ENGAGED!!!!

Here is our engagement story... We had planned to do a hike, but the weather wasn't really cooperating. We decided to go anyway, despite the rain, thunder, and lightening! This picture is at Inspiration Point when the weather really started to get bad. We were having so much fun though! It was SO beautiful!


Grant stopped to check out a deer with two fawn...


Apparently the original plan was for Tom and Donna to say they wanted to go on their own hike, so Grant would have an excuse for us to be alone. That didn't end up working out so Grant was kind of freaking out trying to figure everything out on the fly. He stopped at this spot and started taking a bunch of pictures...


This was all fine and good, but it wasn't very like Grant.. he usually isn't the one to initiate pictures. At that point Donna rushed Tom away.. I started to catch on a little bit, but I wasn't sure. I was really annoyed because I thought Tom and Donna just didn't want to hang out with us! Grant started saying he really had to pee... so we walked a little and we found a spot. I was insisting that he go in one place but he went behind a tree...now I know he didnt really need to pee he wanted to get the ring out of his pocket.

Once I thought he was done peeing I started to continue the hike... we were cold and wet and I wanted to see as much as we could before it got too late. All of a sudden he said something and I turned around and there he was in a poncho on one knee with my ring. He asked me to marry him and I, of course, said YES!! I started screaming and laughing and kissing him... it was pretty funny Grant had to tell me to stop cuz we didnt want anyone to think I was getting eaten by a bear!

From that point on I didnt want to hike. We just sat and talked and had a little photo shoot...








My boy did soo good...
