So yesterday I went on a date with Rachel. We had an adventure, just going wherever our little hearts desired. That’s when I hit her with the suprise…
I took her to a waterfowl observation tower that we found on our first date. We had both forgotten where it was, and she wanted to go back sometime, so Mike Deen and I found it (via this site), and I took her there.
Then I opened the car doors, and cranked up a CD I had made. It started with two swing songs that we danced to, followed by her favorite song ever (Making Memories of Us, by Keith Urban), which we slow danced to. Then as the CD went on to a long silent track, I sang her the song I wrote for her.
The last verse of the song I wrote (entitled “I wanna be Pathetic with You”) went like so:
I want to be with you forever,
I’ll stay with you through all we see,
So now I have a question to ask you…
Then I got down on one knee, opened the ring case (which had a ring in it) and asked her to marry me… And then she said yes!
So I am engaged to be married! As far as a date, we’re looking at next Summer, either early June or before, or late August or after (Basically not during youth camp). And so far it looks like we’ll be doing it right here on the shores of Stony Lake, at camp Ao-Wa-Kiya.
Ok… that’s it.
