Announcement from Africa

Hi family and friends,

Well, updating our blog in Africa did not go as planned…cut off electricity, limited internet, and dial up modems are not on our side. More to come when we get to Budapest, including updates from our climb, safari, and Amani school! Africa has been absolutely amazing…the thought of leaving tomorrow is rough. Good thing we have a bottle of South African wine and a delicious dinner ahead with Nick to prolong the experience!

All that being said, we wanted to make sure to share some news from the great country of Tanzania. Last Friday morning (at sunrise), after a very grueling 4,000 foot climb that tested us mentally and physicially more than anything else in our lives, Brad dropped to a knee on top of Mt Kilimanjaro and proposed. You’re looking at the future Brad and Brooke Logan!! We couldn’t revel in our post-engagement glory for too long at the top (it was negative 20 degrees and our guides let us know that we would literally freeze to death if we didn’t keep moving) but we are certainly celebrating for the rest of the trip! More to come. Ladies – don’t worry, I didn’t let negative 20 degree temps keep me from taking my glove off to put the ring on! A girl has to be a girl, even after days of not showering…

Much love to all,

  1. Wonderful news, congratulations! That is certainly a proposal you will never forget over the years and it will be a great story with a happy ending to share with family and friends throughout your lives.
    Best wishes and safe travels for the rest of your trip. Once you’re back home safe and sound in Madison, I am anxious to hear more.

  2. Wow…where to start…

    I am the luckiest father and soon to be father-in-law ever. I have a world class daughter who amazes me every day. Soon I will have the pleasure of having a world-class son-in-law. Life cannot possibly get any better. I am so proud and happy for both of you! Congrats, best wishes, and have fun. (I wouldn’t be a good father if I didn’t remind you to be safe as well.)

    Now, I have to go watch “Father of the Bride”. The Spencer Tracy version is the best, but the Steve Martin remake will do in a pinch….

  3. Yay, congratulations!!! So so happy for you both. Can’t wait to hear about all of your adventures and see the ring, of course 🙂

  4. Best. Thing. Ever. So happy for you both, and way to go, Brad! Also, Brooke, your dad’s post made me cry lol. Can’t wait until you get back so that we can celebrate! Enjoy 🙂

  5. When you were a little girl you loved to pretend you were Cinderella. Now my beautiful princess has found her amazing prince. I know you two will be happy because you were meant to be together. I am so incredibly happy that you are getting married. I love you both. And I can’t wait to go wedding dress shopping! Congratulations!
