    My daughter gave her boyfriend a glider ride for his 30th birthday. While 3,000 feet above the earth, he asked her to marry him and gave her a beautiful ring. I am so happy for them. My daughter found a wonderful young man who is already a part of our family.

    Thank you everyone! The dress search :eek: I may exhaust all of you :lol:. I keep praying that I won't be like one of those crazy Moms on Say Yes to the Dress! Otherwise she will be :scream:! :rofl:

    I am just beyond thrilled. Her fiancé is wonderful. They are perfect for each other. And his family is great. We are truly fortunate. I'm over the moon!

    Congrats! :cheer:

    You're the complete opposite of my mom. She hates shopping, and was glad I bought mine painlessly on ebay without her involvement. :lol: But you're into it, so you should have fun!

    Wow - he's gutsy! What if he dropped the ring from that high up?

    Best wishes to the newly engaged couple! :)

    I thought of that too!:lol: He said that the seats were so tight that he could barely get the ring out of his pocket! They didn't tell me about the glider until they were down. They know what a worry wart I am :lol:

    Thanks again everyone!:)
