The Happiest Place On Earth

While Evan and Jenni were home, I was reminded of the movie Meet the Fockers. I was Barbara Streisand. I thought it best to just get all the crazy out there so there are no surprises later.
Friday morning I gave Jenni a chopstick set. She humored me.
Then they were off to Disneyland.

Look at the great waves the chopsticks made.
This was Jenni's first trip to Disneyland.
She got into it.


Then, right before the fireworks, Evan got down on one knee.
I'm so happy they got pictures.

She said, "Yes!" It really is the happiest place on earth.
This will be the best ride of their lives.

Hold the presses! Is Evan holding a Tiffany box? You must show us pictures of the ring!!!

How funny about getting the craziness out there! I'm sure DK had wished I hadn't hidden my family's craziness until it was too late! :)

This is going to be so great for them! We loved meeting Jenni -- she is such a sweetheart!

Kenny and Linsey said...

these two don't look old enough to go to a Disneyland solo, much less get married - I must be getting old!

Congratulations on your new addition, she looks like a winner!

How romantic! That can always be "their" place. They can go back, celebrate anniversaries, etc. Love it. Congrats on the new daughter-in-law.
