so happy and so in love :)

yesterday afternoon the boy came over and asked if i wanted to go to the park.  that is a normal thing for us to do randomly.  we went up the canyon to the mt. timpanogos park, sat on a blanket and he pulled out a book.  this was a childrens book made for him by his grandparents when he was born.  it was all about him.  he had me read it out loud.  then he pulled out another book.  i thought it was just a cute love story.  it wasn't until he opened it to the first page that i realized it was OUR love story.  i started to cry right then.  he read the whole thing and then stood up, got down on one knee and proposed.  i was jumping up and down and crying and laughing.  (don't tell my doctor that i was jumping..) of course i said YES! it was the BEST surprise EVER!! and now we have lots of planning and fun things ahead of us.  we will be married in the Salt Lake City temple on August 14, 2012.  can't wait!! :)

one of my best friends carlee badger was not only the one who illustrated the book, but also was our "secret" photographer.  here are some of the pictures captured from our wonderful moment:)
