On Friday, my sister Lydia and her boyfriend Nicholas got engaged!
We started up for 4th of July Canyon as though were going hiking. Nick was supposedly at work...or so Lydia believed! Aunt Maellen, Daniel, and Emily were going to go hiking with us. Acting as though we were just going to have a regular picnic, we went to our usual spot.
We randomly took photos like we always do. Only Lydia was oblivious to the fact that Nick was hiding in the woods...
After a short while, someone "suggested" a short hike before lunch. We all trooped into the woods, with Lydia leisurely taking photos of the leaves.
Up the trail was a short pathway of rose petals. Can you guess that Lydia was the last person to discover them? ;) She was so intent on taking photos that Aunt Maellen and Mom had to point them out. At which point, she wondered out loud if someone had recently been engaged in the spot. Hahahahah!
She came upon (or was, rather, guided to) another bunch of flowers and a card. The card gave her instructions to read slowly and sit down. She did so, not knowing that Nick was walking up behind her...
I was busy filming, so no stills of the actual proposal. Nick got on one knee, said many sweet things, and asked Lydia to marry him. Can you guess what she said?
Nick is a man of many expressions...
They had fun watching the proposal on film.
We did get photos of other people too... ;)
A lot more photos are floating around on Facebook and Google+, but I hope you enjoyed these ones.
