Easter egg-gagement

Jeff Pinkal, of Denver, and Kelley Couch, of Colorado Springs, celebrated Easter in Glenwood Springs. They had an Easter egg hunt of their very own in their hotel room Easter morning. Pinkal left notes and chocolates for Couch in the plastic eggs he planted around the room. The last egg had an engagement ring in it. The two met when Pinkal’s grandmother and Couch’s mother, who knew each other from church, set them up on a blind date. Jeff and Kelley don’t have a wedding date set yet, but will marry sometime next year.Seth Wettlin becomes an Eagle ScoutSince he was 9 years old, Seth Wettlin has had just one wish – to become an Eagle Scout.
