We were in Kona, Hawaii in July of last year when Mark proposed with the help of all 6 kids. We had been at the beach all day and came home to swim in our pool. The kids asked me if I would play a game....each one brought me a card with a word on it and I had to read the card out loud. My competitive spirit kicked in and I was so busy trying to memorize who had given me which card in which color that I didn't string the words together. When I finally read them together...."IF YOU LOVE ME SAY YES"...the kids all yelled "TURN AROUND!" and Mark was on his knee with my gorgeous ring. After I said yes, the kids said "We were already a family, but this just makes it official!" Cue tears.
