Thank heavens for electronics to keep them entertained for the hour we were stuck in the car lol.
Around 10:15 we got all dressed (suits and ties & little girlie shoes) and headed over to the golden doors where we awaited the exit of the Bride and Groom!!
You then have the grooms sisters (aka me and britt!) with little brookie. Then the groom with his parents. Then one of my mom and I. Jaxson trying to break in to the temple lol..he really wanted uncle Bz. The bride and groom holding Brooklyn, The best man (john), bridesmaid (britt) & flower girl (Brooklyn), Jaxson holding Brooklyn back from running away lol. The happy couple in front of the temple :) and then the couples first kiss :)
Today was busy yet exciting! After the temple photos we headed to the luncheon where we got to eat delicious chicken cordon bleu, polynesian meatballs, potatoes. fruit salad, & rolls. The parents, best man, and maid of honor gave their speeches then Brandon got a surprise-a goblet full of chocolate peanut butter ice cream (his favorite!) Then the guests got served ice cream with strawberry or raspberry jam..it was yummy!
after which we headed to Korrine's parents house for more family photos and the reception...get this it was raining (and we weren't in Washington!!) so they had to move everything inside then it cleared up so we headed back outside :) Brandon and Korrine cut their cake-Korrine smashed the cake first so Brandon had to retaliate lol they are too cute!
The happy couple walked out to their friends and family blowing them bubbles (brooklyn loved them!) and then they saw their car which was "lovingly" decorated by Korrine's family ;) Brandon tore off the saran wrap and Korrine and him got inside and headed off to their week long honeymoon in California :) Enjoy your honeymoon newlyweds! We love you both!
today you two went into the temple as two individuals
but you came out as one family.
The Heffron name you bear is known for its
competitiveness, love, compassion, outgoingness,
being adventuresome, helping one another.
We have seen all these attributes in you already
and so we welcome you with open arms.
Marriage is a wonderful journey
that you two have started on together,
your family is excited to see where life takes you both.
We love you and can't wait to have many memories with you!
Two videos for you guys! 1st one is of Brandon & Korrine walking out as a couple and their first kiss (twice because my mom didn't get the first lol) and the 2nd one is of them exchanging wedding rings for all those who couldn't go into the temple which was nice :)

My big bro Brandon will be marrying his sweetheart Korrine in the Oquirrh Mountain Temple on August 20, 2011.
I'm so proud of my brother, he has gone from the brother who I would always follow around (as little sisters tend to do ;p) with my barbies as his buddies played with G.I. Joe or army people to the guy I would ball it up with in our front yard to a worthy servant of the Lord who returned with honor from a mission in Mexico to a man who is working his butt off, buying his first place, and in two weeks will be worthy to enter into the temple to be married to Korrine for time and all eternity :)
I may be a few years older and trying to establish my own way, but I will always look up to you big bro. You've hit a few road blocks in our life but I've watched you not run in the wrong direction rather overcome them with the help of the Lord and support from family! You've been definitely a great example to me and now for you to get married in the temple it just adds one more thing that I aspire to follow :)
Your foot steps may be big and it might take me a while to follow with my small feet but the journey will be amazing so I don't mind making it a long adventure :)
I am so excited to make the "actual" wedding post so readers stay tuned and in less than two weeks (August 20) I'll be posting again about that day that is bound to be AWESOME :)

Its all because that boy in the corner-Landon is his name was attending a wood working class up there making boomerrangs :) He started them on Saturday and on Sunday he finished them up and I must say I'm impressed-they turned out really great & best part is that they actually work lol!
Next pictures (on the right side of the collage) is of the car ride...after we dropped Landon off at his class we headed into town and checked out the boutiques...some super cute stuff ( i found tons of those signs that had cute sayings) but BOY were they expensive (gotta get the tourist's money i suppose lol) but I was smart and just wrote them down and will make my own! But Mireya convinced her parents to get her a Hello Kitty notepad with a multi colored pen lol so that's when you get the pictures, the package the notepad came in had this "remove before use" sticker which she thought was hilarious so she put it on my arm...and I was like "i hope you don't remove my arm, I kinda need that"-she giggled :) then she put it on her forehead and her dad turns around and was like "ah man...just what we need, removing her brain lol" it was funny! In the car Landon and I played the license plate & slug bug game (basically an excuse to hit each other lol!) But I'm a beast at that game so I got to hit him a few dozen times lol, he was just lucky that I was hitting him with my left hand which is not my dominant one so it didn't hurt as bad ;)
We headed to the beach-Kitsap State Park to be exact :) can you say BRRR??? cuz I can't...I was too numb from the ice cold water to speak! But after about an hour of wading in and out trying to get up to my neck or at least to where I would have to swim, we got out to go walk up and down the coast line looking for seashells and crabs :) I found some pretty awesome looking seashells :)
Then after turning off my common sense about wanting to stay warm rather than freeze my butt off I did it! i got in all the way into the FREEZING water :) landon and I went out for a swim, good news-the water was a bit warmer once you got out a bit (we may have been hallucinating lol) but still it was tons of fun, we were swimming against the current and sadly it won...we tried so hard to get back to where we had started to get back on land but failed lol. we ended up going a bit off and having to walk up to the parents :)
After we were done swimming we headed to Mongolian Grill-kind of a cool place, you pick out what you want to eat and then they grill it up! It was like BAM food :) I could get used to that ;) At dinner Landon ate a jalapeno, he is usually fantastic with them and it doesn't hurt at all but this one was a fresh one and BOY OH BOY did it BURN! His face got all red, his eyes watered and he couldn't talk...FUNNIEST thing of my life... it gave us a good laugh :)
After dinner we headed home :) I must say today was a fantastic day and I am so glad that the Schott's invited me to come along-I love them! So much fun :) It was fun hanging out at the ocean and in town acting like tourists (probably can't go back though-we got a little goofy lol!) Thank you SO much for inviting me to join on your getaway :)

Natasha & I did "girlfriend" by Avril Lavinge which was hilarious!

Off we went-we went to a different location that they had never been to so finding the entrance was quite an adventure lol :)
We dropped our bags, snapped on our goggles and snorkling gear and off we went into the water!
This was my first time and snorkling so it was interesting to get the hang of only breathing out of my mouth lol ;) But it didn't help much that Landon kept sticking things in the tube, or covering it with his hand-like what he was about to do in this photo up above..that little turd lol
Little Mireya and her rainbow colored swimsuit :) she loves snorkling to find rocks-she had a whole swimming suit full when she got done lol!
Landon is a pro snorkler-he ended up spotting fish for us which was pretty cool to see and try to catch :) He has had a few lessons so he taught me all his tricks-thanks bud!

With August here comes many important things...1) the countdown for my brother's wedding is ON (well it always was on but now its within this month)...19 more days till he gets married to his love of his life for time and all eternity-woohoo!!! 2) I get to go down to visit Utah for a few weeks-par-ty time :) can't wait to spend some time with the fam! 3) (and this one is more of a personal thing but hey I'll share it with you!) With July over with and August here I am finally in the months where I can say "its my last (insert month) without nate" the next august I see I'll have Nate back here with me (ha I'm a poet and didn't know it ;p) But I'm excited to say goodbye to July and will be excited to say hello to it again next year b/c you all know Nate will be heading home!!
So here is to an awesome month filled with lots of memorable moments, family time, and love :)
Sunday is one of my favorite days (definitely in compeition with thursday or whenever I get my letters from Nate lol) But I really do love Sundays, life just seems to stop for a second and I feel like I can breath! I love going to church and feeling the spirit that comes from attending church too! I get to be blessed with substituting for the four year olds, it gives me the chance to teach the gospel to these young minds which I love :) Its so awesome to watch them absorb all the gospel and its principles! I hope you all had a fantastic Sunday :)
