Pete planned this for a while, he wanted it to be absolutely perfect. He and Ginger put together a trip to the west coast with the first stop being the Grand Canyon. It was a place they had always dreamed of seeing together. They were so ready to escape the cold of Illinois and he was ready to (finally) ask her to marry him. After finding the perfect spot, a plan quickly came together.
The day came and it was dreary but the Grand Canyon was everything the imagined and more. He snuck in sideways glances as they went on their all-day adventure to see the best tourist spots, wondering if she had any idea. She didn’t. She just thought this was a perfect escape for the two of them even though he was being a little quiet. It became a day of stalling, waiting, and nerves… lots of nerves. When the two of them arrived at Shoshone Point, Pete was more than ready to ask the big question.
As she pointed out to the view of the Colorado River, he dropped down to one knee and caught her completely by surprise. He could finally say it: “Will you marry me?” Ginger immediately threw her hands around him as they burst out in laughter. The ring was on her finger but he had to ask “You did say yes right?”
“Of course!” she responded. “YES!!”
