Friday, Marty's best friend Eric proposed to his girlfriend and our good friend, Charlotte. Marty and I knew it was coming and were with Eric when he got the ring. Because Char and I are so close, it was hard to keep a secret, but I did! Marty and I were probably as close as you can be to being AS excited as the couple getting engaged because of how close we are. When we were all still at Concordia the four of us hung out all the time. None of us were dating at the time and Char and I had no clue that these boys ever had crushes on us. Then after 4 years of amazing friendship, Marty and I start dating, a little while later, Eric and Char started dating, Marty and I got engaged and married, and now Eric and Char are engaged and will be getting married in October. We are so excited for Eric and Char and love them to pieces!
On Saturday, the 16th, Marty's family and Kayleen's family all met up at the airport to welcome Stephen, Marty's brother, home. Stephen had been in the middle east with the Navy. We had not seen him since our wedding in June. We were not JUST going to welcome him home, but we knew he was going to be proposing to Kayleen and he wanted us all there. The proposal was very sweet! I don't have actual photos of the engagement but am hoping to get them from Marty's mom so for a now a different picture of the cute couple will have to do. Stephen and Kayleen are getting married on August 22nd.
Later on in the evening of the 16th, our college friend Brady proposed to his girlfriend Kaylyn. He had some of Kaylyn's friends set the scene in a park with candles. After dinner and a walk leading to the candle lit place, Brady popped the question. I stole a photo of the night he proposed. :-) We are very happy for the both of them and are looking forward to getting to know Brady's future wife, Kaylyn, more over this special time! Kaylyn and Brady are also getting married in August!
