    We went to San Diego in April 2010 to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We stayed at Hilton San Diego Bay, and had an awesome view of the bay and downtown from our room.

    It was a weekend full of adventures and good food. We had breakfast at Green Flash on Mission Beach, which reminded us a lot of our favorite place in Austin, except for the beachfront view! We went hiking at Torrey Pines State Park. The weather was absolutely perfect and the scenery there was breathtaking. We also visited the zoo while we were in San Diego. Our favorite animals were the Chimpanzees and the Orangutans. They were hilarious.

    The last day, we toured the USS Midway. We took the bridge tour and learned all about the history and crew, got to see the admiral's living quarters. It was cool!

    After the tour we were running short on time, and needed to get to the airport to catch our flight. But, Darren wanted to take one more picture by a large sculpture of a sailor kissing his girl, which was right next to the aircraft carrier. We drove around and got parked, and got out of the car. As we approached the statue Darren asked a girl, who was with a friend, to take our picture. We attempted to mimick the pose that the statue was representing, then, Darren took both of my hands, and said he'd had the perfect weekend with me, and couldn't have imagined sharing it with anyone else. Then he said he couldn't imagine spending his life with anyone else. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was the best day of my life.
