How She Asked
After that, we started on our hike. My Mom wanted lots of photos of the scenery so we took lots of photos, which worked into my plan. After a bit, I had her stand on a flat rock just above the water for a “photo.” I got down on one knee pulled out the ring camera, and asked her to marry me. Of course she was caught off guard and didn’t really believe this was happening to her. After putting a lovely ring on her finger, we took photos together, and began to paint on some rocks “I Asked”, and “I Said Yes.” Then we used side walk chalk to write “Future Mrs. McQueen”, and “She Said Yes!!” Then we went back to the campsite to see my family. My mom greeted Natalia as my “future daughter-in-law.” With lots of excitement, Natalia sat admiring her ring as we waited to video call her mom and dad. Her dad picked up the phone and took it to her mom who was ecstatic for her daughter and future son-in-law.
