Just think about her reaction - "c'mon, let`s take a look at the picture!" They go to look at the log ride photo, and bam - something she TOTALLY wasn`t expecting, done in a way she could never see coming, and probably in a place like Disneyland where things are supposed to be romantic and fantastical anyway. I say this will be the most memorable photo of her life.

"@Markust: Wow. Now *that* is romantic. ~Squrlz tips an invisible squirrel hat in Markust's direction~"
Thanks Squrlz. It was such a perfect moment. I wasn`t able to get the proposal translated until three days before our trip. Not a lot of time to learn it but somehow I knocked it out of the park. When the Champagne arrived for his birthday toast I said, "Can I make a birthday toast in French?" I don`t really speak French very well so it took him back when I said fluently, "I want to make your 25th birthday the most romantic. After only a few short years I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you." It hit him what I was doing with those last words. I`d been wearing my grandpa`s wedding ring on my left hand for a while and that day I had the ring I bought on. I dropped to my knee and said in French again, "I beg of you to marry me." He said Oui. And we drank lots of champagne.
