I love going to Cox Arboretum. It has been one of my favorite places for years, and it is even where Phil proposed. I also take the kids there every year for birthday pictures. Anyway! We went there yesterday and I took them back to the very spot that Daddy proposed. I hadn't been back on those trails for a couple of years, and had never taken the kids back there. It was great and got me all sappy and sentimental watching the kids play at the very spot where Daddy was on his knee. These pictures just don't do it justice. They are draining the pond right now, so it looks a little down and out. But it is tucked in the back of a huge field of trails, tall grass, and wildflowers. It is a beautiful little treasure. Here it is:
Can you see it in there?

Phil had pictures, flowers, and candles everywhere. This is where he was on his knee:
This whole dock was lined with candles:
