a fun saturday night and the Big News around town...
saturday night we watched emily's brother's band play a show at my favorite summer hang-out, marco's cafe in lotus.
brett, bass player extraordinaire, and his band the Ingredients were phenomenal. it was their farewell show; he's heading up to redding to go to the fire academy.
brett's best friend, evan, aka evergreen.
it was ida's (sitting next to darin) last night in town too...she's on her way back home to norway now and we miss her already.
i LOVE marco's. it has the best summery vibe, all the river rafters hang out here and there's live music and delicious food and sometimes vendors selling crafts out front.
here's my friends justin and laila, the owners on the left, with anothony our buddy who works there and other staff. how fun is this?!
and of course i had to pose with the band.
these kids were truly incredible and utterly entertaining.
but the BEST PART OF THE NIGHT was when joey and emily took darin and i aside and told us that they are going to get married!
he has been saving this little box to put the ring in for over two years.
once prop 8 got overturned, he knew it was time!
the ring he got her was from the native american trading post and then he proposed to her on main street placerville!
i could not possibly be more happy.
to have THIS GIRL as my sister!
