What a nice holiday weekend...We had a good time in Kansas City, visiting Lane, doing some shopping and getting to spend some time with my parents. I rode this double-decker carousel with Macauley at the Oak Park Mall. He chose the dolphin and I took the seal. We didn't get to do everything we wanted to, so another trip will be in the works.
Most exciting, though, was the news we got on the way up to KC Friday evening that Tyson had proposed to my middle sister Lindsay! He surprised her on the dock at their lake house with a dance to their song (Zak Brown Band) and then popped the question. They've been together four years now, and we're looking forward to them making it official. She wants to have a destination wedding somewhere tropical and then have a reception in Springfield when they return. So we're gone over 13 years since a wedding in our family (mine!), and now we will have 2 in the same year. Lane declared the Slim Down of 2013 in light of these events. Does that mean I don't need to start until 1 January?
