Rodney's engagement announcement

Yesterday after the 6 hour journey we spent with Brent and Randi, the grand announcement was shared at dinner of Rodney springing the big question to Lauren Yeaman, and of course after the big shock, she said yes!
It was so nice that they shared this moment with Tony and I, but also all of her family as they were with us for dinner. Needless to say this announcement was with great joy, and tears. The most tender moment was Lauren and daddy, both were in tears.
Rodney came home from California Sunday morning to get prepared for his milatary duty this week, so when Lauren picked him up from the airport they went by Rodney's cousin Casey & Royl, then all went to enjoy the sunny day at Bridal Vale falls. One thing led to another, and the perfect moment of surprise came when Rodney went down on one knee to ask Lauren to marry him.
At this point the plan is for August 08, December 08, or April 09 between semesters at school. Oh to be young again.

Anthony -
I am impressed that you didn't say anything offensive to Lauren. You didn't make her you did me... Way to go!
