Going to the backyard and I’m going to get married!

Raymond and me at Snake River, Idaho. It was a great day on our 2K2 road trip through America to Disneyland, and we stumbled upon this giant canyon we didn’t expect. It’s not the best picture of the two of us, but I think it’s my favourite. We’ve both lost weight, and my hair was...
