Riley had been dating Lily since they were in middle school and every year for their anniversary he had gotten her a stepping stone. It started out as kind of a joke but now his plan is to use all the stones at their first home together.
The plan was to put the stepping stone down in the park and then he could say, “What in the world is that!” and lead her over to it.
Because they’ve been dating since they were 14, their families have known each other for a long time. Riley conspired with his and Lily’s family to come join them for when Riley popped the question. They were hiding across the street watching the whole thing.
Their younger siblings were impressed with Lily’s new ring.
