engagement pics

My sis and I were talking about engagements just barely and I decided to take a trip down memory lane.
A month and 3 years ago Richard proposed to me in this spot. We watched the sunset in the valley shown above and ate homemade backpackers pesto tortellini.

We didn't tell our fellow backpackers until the next morning. After we told them they took a pic of us in the exact spot. Pretty cool. Richard was nervous. I was too. I'm pretty sure that I used the word "sure" instead of yes. Ah well he knows I love him.
This is us at the end of the hike after climbing the last pass. It was an amazing trip. I miss backpacking so much. After posting this pic on her blog, rich's sis got lots of questions about why I have a hug pack and rich has none. I guess it was just practice for the future carrying anna everywhere.

Ah, memories. I think that pack was actually preparing you for pregnancy. Although, it should be on the front I guess.

So cute! I just remember we were all headed to Wyoming and Taylor was telling us how Richard had come to talk to dad and he couldn't stop giggling. You guys are great, sure glad you married that mountain man.
