A surprise to last a lifetime
I have always been somewhat nosey when it comes to surprises. Dave has tried many times to surprise me, but I usually predict it before it happens. He also has a hard time keeping surprises and has to tell me about it before it happens. This combination has always been a problem, but I have always said that when he proposed I wanted it to be the biggest surprise ever. He did just that on Labor Day weekend 2007.
We were on our annual camping trip to Norway Beach with my family. I was a park naturalist there for a summer and go back to visit every year. We had planned on going to the naturalist program at the visitor center Saturday evening, which my old boss, Mary, was going to present. What I didn't know was that Dave had asked my dad for permission a couple weeks before and had planned with Mary to incorporate the engagement into the program. She had food up front and wanted Dave and I to start the line. When we went up there he grabbed my hand, and there he was on his knee! I was shocked and had not seen it coming.
I am told, since I was in complete shock and don't remember much, that there wasn't a dry eye in the place. It's truly a surprise that will last forever!
