congrats my friends!!!
over the weekend our good friend nate proposed to his girlfriend abi. he planned out a whole scavenger hunt for her to do, leading her to places they've spent time during their courtship. then the last clue led her to a park where they first met. that's where he proposed!! and she said: YES!
then they went back to her parent's place where chris had been all day preparing a special meal for them... chicken picata. (its his best meal...seriously!) they had a little candle-lit dinner just the two of them. our friend vinny was the "waiter."
i had to work, so i missed the actual proposal day, but i went down to kennewick on saturday afternoon. they had a big family dinner for them, and just included chris and i. it was so nice to be involved in such a special moment for our friends.
we stayed over saturday night and spent all day sunday with them too. they had meeting at 4 so we got the whole morning to hang out. we watched wall-e (so cute!!) and had family study. interestingly the watchtower was about marriage. rather apropos! ;)
they have also invited chris and i to be in their wedding party! we are so honored and excited!

love you guys!!

it was a fantastic weekend.
