It's Official!!...Part 1

Around this time last year we were on our annual vacation to Utah. 
 The Boy was there working trying to earn money for the next school year. 
 Presh was getting ready to enter the MTC, and The Rooster was just having a good time!
 The Boy would spend most days with us...at least the days that he wasn't working. 
 It was a really great time for our family. Anyway, during this time The Boy met a really
 beautiful and kind girl. He called one afternoon and asked if we didn't mind if he 
brought her over so we could meet her. Of course we thought that would be fine 
and then we waited for them to arrive. Our rented house was filled with
visiting cousins from AZ.

Certainly the little cousins were excited to meet The Boy's "friend." 
 I wondered if this girl he was bringing over would be completely overwhelmed 
with the energy that filled our house. I thought that might scare her away pretty quickly. 
 It really was quite a crowd! The time finally came and they arrived together. 
 The cousins were peeking out the window, hoping to catch a glimpse of her before 
they reached the door step. I heard things like..."they are here!!!"..."oh wow...she's so pretty!"
 and then they rushed to the door waiting for The Boy to open it. It was a fun scene to watch. 
 The door opened and there they were...and yes...she was beautiful! 
 But even better than that...she was sweet, kind and patient with all of those sweet 
cousins who wanted to talk to her and hug her. Immediately she jumped right in and
 helped serve cake and ice cream...chatting with everyone around her. 
 And then I thought..."she is fitting right in...interesting!"

We spent the rest of our summer days in Utah getting to know The Boy's "Girl"
more and more. The more we got to know her, the more we like her. 
 Some were even heard to suggest that we keep her, in exchange for The Boy! 
 Our vacation was finally done and we headed back home. 
PreSh entered her mission, The Rooster began his Senior year and The Boy 
returned to USU for another semester of college and
The Boy..and his Girl continued to date and fall in love.

Nearly a year passed and it was becoming quite clear that The Boy was smitten.
 Finally, he came home for Spring Break. During this time he confided in The Farmer that 
he was in love. He would say things like..."I love that she is always happy!"...
"I love that she is always so kind"...and he began to think about marriage. 
 At the end of the Spring semester he left for Texas to work. One afternoon I got a text from 
The Boy...it said..."I kind of bought a wedding ring" to which I responded...
"you either did or you didn't...there is no "kind of"....to which he replied...
"I did." We were thrilled!!! So happy with his decision and who he had chosen. 
 He planned the week to come home...that's where he wanted to be when he proposed to her
...and began to come up with the perfect proposal. The plan was put in place. 
 His Girl would fly to Mesa where Grandma S. would pick her up and drive her to Mexico. 
 A great excuse to have the Grandma there too! Once there Uncle Dave would take 
her on a plane ride along with PreSh and The Rooster. They would circle the Colonia Juarez 
temple and then they would fly over a special message that was written out for her on 
Grandpa Max's old runway. They would then fly back to Uncle Ron's runway where 
they would land, and The Boy would be waiting surrounded by family.
