Mrs. Micah St. John!!!

My sister is engaged! She is planning on getting married over Memorial day weekend! I am so happy for the both of them. The wedding planning has begun! We don't have a ton of time and everywhere is booked! So that is making this a bit of a challenge but we can do it! Micah did a great job surprising her with the engagement. It was really fun.

He took her up to Chicago to meet his extended family. They stayed with his grandparents and went into the city and did fun stuff all week. On Saturday they went to the aquarium and then they went to Navy Pier. I will continue my story after a few shots of them! :)

Micah proposed on the top of that ferris wheel. They were overlooking all of Chicago and it started snowing when they got on. They also stopped when they were at the top. That wasn't planned but it happened right after he asked her. So perfect! So here they are in front of Navy Pier to commemorate the goings on there earlier in the day! :)
Here is a picture of the ring. He did such a good job and got a beautiful ring.
Here we all are at dinner. Amber, Micah, his uncle and aunt, his grandmother, his dad, Allen and me. She was so surprised that we were at dinner that she didn't notice us. I had to say something to her for her to recognize me! It was really fun to surprise her like that.
They were bot so excited and they smiled all night!
Allen and I had a good time hiding out in Chicago as well. We went ice skating at Millennium Park. And we saw Handel's Messiah Rocks. It was a show where they put Handel's Messiah to rewritten (rocked-out) music. It was actually really good. I wasn't so sure if it would be but I was amazed!
Here we are ice skating.

This was the weather. A really wet thick snow. It was beautiful! Such a great weekend to visit!
