Kaylen and Caleb

How He Asked

Anyone who knows me (Kaylen), knows how much I absolutely adore Walt Disney World. Even more, I love a good Disney engagement or wedding. My parents and grandparents just so happened to be doing a Disney Land & Sea vacation in September. Well, my mom knew I was starting my new job, and possibly could not come along. One day in July, my mom asked if I could just ask if it were possible for me to come for the “land” part of the vacation. I did the math and realized I would have plenty of leave time. At first, I was a little suspicious, but Caleb immediately got me out of that by telling me he would never propose without his parents or my dad and Roro there. I agreed. My mom tells me that she really wants a really nice family picture in the Magic Kingdom for our Christmas card, and to bring a nice outfit to wear for it.

I did not think anything of this as my mom is always planning family pictures. The day of, we all get dressed up and leave for the Magic Kingdom to meet up with the photographer. We take a couple of family pictures, and all of a sudden the Dapper Dans pull Caleb and I aside as volunteers for their show. They claim we are the perfect pair because I had a pink magic band and Caleb had a pink shirt on.

They tell Caleb that his job is to sing “you” every time they put their hat down. They begin to sing “Let me call you sweetheart, I’m in love with….” and Caleb sings “..youuu”. This goes on, and at the end, Caleb gets down on one knee and asks me to spend forever with him. Of course, I said YES! (actually, I couldn’t speak so I just nodded my head.) I turn around and notice that his parents, my dad, and roro, and my aunt, uncle, and cousins have surprised me. It was the most magical day of my life!
