Every Story Needs A Start

Well, this is where it all begins. Kelly and Bart took a trip to Brooklyn , NY from June 5th – 8th. The trip was to see Susannah, Beth, and Ben, but Bart did have a hidden agenda. He had already bought the ring about 2 months before and it was burning a hole in his pocket. So to New York they went. Friday, June 6, 2008 Bart and Kelly did a little sight seeing. They started out the day with a walk through Brooklyn on the way to the Aplin’s place. Dinner was at Tavern on The Green.
From there, they hopped into a cab and headed off for the Empire State Building. Bart thought ahead on this one and got express passes (We are going to advise everyone to get these). Kelly and Bart were to the top of the ESB within 5 minutes and Bart was about to flip out. Luckily, Bart had a second to get the ring out of his messenger bag and into his pocket. They enjoyed the view from the 86th floor.
They decided to pay the additional fee and go up to the 102nd floor. Bart was more nervous than before. He asked around for someone to take their picture. The first couple took a couple of photos and cut Bart’s head off and Kelly’s arm. This wouldn’t work. Bart looked all around for someone who spoke English to ask. Finally, he found a lady (who we actually ran into again in the airport! Small world!). He waited for her to walk away and followed her. He walked up to her shaking and said, “Would you take a picture of me and my girlfriend? Oh and I am about to propose, so just keep taking them.” The lady squealed. So Kelly and Bart posed. She took a couple pictures and Bart took a couple of moments. He leaned over and said, “You know I love you, right?” He then got down on one knee and said, “I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?” Kelly said “Yes” and the rest is history.
