Today is a fabulous day, this 25th day of March 2009!

Our son, Chris proposed to his wonderful girlfriend, Heather today in Walnut Creek, California.
She said yes!
We are delighted, thrilled, and so glad to be spreading the news to our family and friends.


I drove Chris to the airport yesterday morning. Although he usually balks when I whip out my camera to "document" events, he didn't put up any fuss this time. Here he is showing me the ring before tucking it into his carry-on computer bag as we loaded up the car.

Today was the "big day". Gorgeous weather, a picnic in the park, two wonderful people committing themselves to each other. I'm so happy for both of them. Yeah!

Shortly after the engagement was official, both of them updated their "status" boxes on Facebook. I love this picture of them in front of their laptops taking care of business. Check out that ring on Heather's left ring finger! What's been fun is reading all the great messages rolling in from friends and family in joyful celebration for this happy couple.

Heather and Chris, you are much loved!
