how they asked
We were visiting Kevin’s parents in Baldwinsville, NY for a surprise party for his mom. I woke up on June 16, 2018, to a warm cup of coffee and Kevin asking me to go for a walk before the party. That day was also Kevins birthday so I tried to be sneaky and decorate the room and get his presents together before we left the house. We left the house around 10 am and started our walk. I thought Kevin knew where we going but shortly into the walk I can tell he got us totally lost. Normally on our walks, we don’t talk much and just enjoy the outdoors but that day he was talking up a storm and on his phone a lot. I finally convinced him to look up the directions online so that we could make it home in time for the party. We walked for about 20 minutes and I knew we were getting close to his parents’ house but saw a playground and jumped on the swings. Kevin joined me and we both decided to jump. Instead of making a graceful landing I bit the dust and rolled in the mulch. Kevins landing was a perfect 10 followed by him dropping down to 1 knee. He had planned an entire proposal at this exact spot and I was beyond surprised. After saying yes and balling my eyes out we decided to walk back to the house to get ready for the party. As we got closer to the house I could hear people out back and recognized one of them as my dads. I fell to the ground crying as soon as I realized my parents had driven from Kentucky to NY to be there for my engagement. They had no idea Kevin had already popped the question before we arrived because since we got lost he told them not to meet us at the playground. The surprise party on Saturday for his mom turned out to be an engagement party for us and everyone showed up shortly after. I was so beyond blessed that Kevin set everything up and was able to get my parents there as well so that our families could finally meet. We are looking forward to our wedding day July 16, 2019.
