Samuel's and my first 'date' :)


This post is waaaaayyyyy overdue, but last Saturday Samuel too me out on our first 'date'!!! 

He came and picked me up and took me to Addison to fly over Dallas for about an hour!!! 
Soooooo Romantic!!!! :)


We dropped by his work so he could show me the plane they've been working on...then, because he has a airport access badge, so we drove from his work to the plane rental out on the airport...airports are really neat places!!! :)





A huge map of the world in the waiting area...


our two pilots



us!!! :) we had to wait about 15 min. on the runway before we could take off, but the flight was wonderful!!!!!



a few planes waiting in line....

Housing developments look neat and tidy from the air....

After we got back to the ground, Sam took me to this cute little park for a picnic! :)

He had to put some power of steering fluid in the truck....and I snuck pictures of him while he did it... :)




Darling little picnic for two..... :)



had a little trouble opening the sparkling cider...but My man opened it with a knife! :)



the bug that drowned in my cider....added to the romance.... :P


He's sooooo thoughtful!!!

Taking random pictures while Samuel went back to the truck for something......



A vase of roses, a special question, an 'I love you', and a diamond solitaire ring!!! 
Of course I said 'Yes!!!!!!' and we hugged for the first time, and said 'I love you' for the first time!!! 






Back at the Schattes telling them the story and showing them the ring.... :)




For some reason we couldn't stop smiling..... ;)

Mr. Schatte was still at work, so we talked to him on the phone


We ate supper at the Schatte's and then headed to my family's house to tell them the news.....

I am so happy and excited for you! What a blessing it is to see 2 Godly young people joining their lives together.
(What a gorgeous ring too!)

And on a silly note.... you'd think y'all were auditioning for a toothpaste commercial! I don't think I've seen 2 people SMILE so much in my life! :-D
Congratulations and God bless you both,

Mrs. C :-)

Those Schatte girls are so creative! I loved the saran wrapped hoagie sandwich idea and the cookies, too! What a wonderful picnic even though Marybethany said that you were a little nauseous that day. :0) You have pretty pictures to look at it! Blessings to you and Samuel!
