The Propsal 8/15/07

Ok, I've had a few requests for pics from The Proposal so here they are:
Basically the gist of the day was that I sent her on a mini scavenger hunt that ended at the training tower (i know, hopeless romantic). She was surprised at the beginning since I told her we had no plans for the day. But I'm pretty sure that after I gave her a secret envelope and ran out the house she had a good idea of what was going on. Anyway, the ultimate goal was to get her to the training tower in San Marcos where I would use the 100' aerial ladder on Truck 1471 to climb to her. I know it's fire-geeky but I wanted it to be unique and surprising and i figured how many people have access to a fire truck?

We have pictures from the both of us because she is a smart girl and took her camera.

I needed a head start so I could get down to San Marcos in time.

One of her clues was at a dentist office in Escondido (don't ask why a dentist office). The ladies in the office insisted on taking her picture. Not just with her camera but with their camera too. They told her they would hang it in the office. Weird.

The guys waiting for her to arrive. Originally the plan was to have Truck 1471, Engine 1411, Medics 1491 and 1496, and Chief 1403 all parade in code 3 lights and sirens and circle the tower where she was standing. Unfortunately, the moment she pulled in everyone except the truck went out on responses.

Her final clue was at the indoor rock climbing place. She had to climb up a boulder to retrieve the clue. She likes that kind of stuff. All outdoorsy and what not... From there she drove to the training tower where I was waiting.

Bill escorts her to the top of the tower.

I roll in on the truck (the lights and siren are on)

I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory.

Thank you again to all the guys for taking time out their day.

Oh yeah, she said YES!!!
