I have a pretty little ring on my left hand!! :)

Adam proposed!!!! Yay!!! I can't believe it! It was such a surprise!!! I have the condensed version on Facebook and a bunch of pictures on there but if you don't have Facebook I'll put some pictures up on here as well! Ü Here's the whole story...

On Friday, June 26th, our day started out with going to meet with a photographer, to see if she would take pictures at the wedding. (If you didn't know, we knew we were getting married he just hadn't proposed yet. Haha.)

Anyway...after that we went to Antelope Island to have some fun in the sun and to see if we could find the geocache that we couldn't find last time we were there in March. Geocaching involves finding coordinates that the website gives you and it should lead you to a geocache box. We have never been very successful in our geocaching adventures.

Well before that we decided to have some lunch up at their little grill and we had buffalo burgers. They were so delicious!! We learned that they get their buffalo from Wyoming and not off the island and they don't use buffalo cheese! ;)



















Then we went to t
he beach and walked all the way out to the lake. I was very surprised that the lake was so low. It was kind of a long trip but we did it! Ü It was fun minus all the brine flies and shrimp. Yuck!

These writings were done on the way out to the lake.





This one is Adam's.











This is mine!











After our little hike we decided to go back to where the supposed geocache was used to be. It is just this giant rock formation that has a bunch of little cave like things. Adam is a much better climber than I am so he said he was going to go over to another area while I went another way. After a while, Adam met up with me and we started walking toward where he had been and he was looking through a hole in the rock and said "I think this goes all the way through. Let's go check out the other side." So we did and when he got over there he had found something which happened to be a geocaching box. I was so excited because we had actually found one!!!!

He handed it to me and said "wait let's take pictures of it before you open it." After that, I opened it and there was a keychain exactly like one I had bought him in San Francisco. I thought it was just a wacky coincidence. Haha. The next thing I grabbed out was a speaker that you put in to a handheld CD player so it plays out loud. I didn't know what it was at the time so I was a little confused and then I pulled out the CD player. Adam explained about the speaker but apparently it didn't work. When I picked up the CD player there was a picture of us! It was then that I started to catch on to what was going on. Apparently the ring box that was in there wasn't enough. I asked him when he did this and he said just now. He had been carrying it around in his Camelback BAG. Ü

He told me to open the ring box and so I did. In the box was a piece of paper that said TURN AROUND.
And when I did he was down on one knee and holding the ring and asked me if I would marry him!! Ü I screamed and then started crying and said YES! I was so excited! I couldn't stop screaming and jumping up and down. It was wonderful! I loved it so much!! He did it perfectly!! I would have never guessed that he was going to do it then!!!






This is the ring! It is beautiful and I love it! I can't stop staring at it all the time!! He did a really good job! It is exactly what I wanted! Ü
AHHHH!!!! WE ARE ENGAGED!!!! WOOO!!!!
