On Saturday Laura and Jonathon were married on a beautiful cliff in Laguna Beach. Following the ceremony we headed over to Las Brisas for Lunch. It was amazing! It was not only beautiful, but the food was amazing. I also got to take some photos to get some practice (for those of you who don't know I am working on my portfolio so that I can start a photography company). Jonathon works with me and I have known him for a long time. When I asked him if I could take pictures at their wedding he was more than happy to let me play paparazzi for the day. I am so glad that I got to share their special day with them. They are beautiful people inside and out and I am so happy for them!!! Here is the video I made for them.

Here is the video that I made for Mike and Jessica so that they could remember this weekend. It was an amazing trip. Tyler and I had so much fun. We got to do the fun tourist-y things that we wanted to and we didnt miss any of the family stuff. It was amazing to see the papers signed and the adoption finalized, see them get sealed in the Seattle Temple for all eternity and have them delivered to California! Enjoy!

Today we are leaving for Seattle, Washington. And we just happened to get a flight with Mike, Judd and Cindy! I already told mike that I will be throwing my peanuts at him if he sits in front of us! :) But this is no ordinary vacation... This weekend we are going to be able to see some things that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Tomorrow is the finalization of the adoption of Aaron and Owen Forsgren. Jessica and Mike have taken care of these two little gems for the last two years and at last they get to be a part of their family legally and eternally. On Saturday we are going to have the opportunity to watch the Forsgren family kneel at the altar in the Seattle Temple and be sealed together for all of eternity. I am so unbelievably happy! Jessica and Mike have been a wonderful example to Tyler and I and we are so proud of them for going through so much to give these sweet boys a life full of love, family and especially the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have witnessed the sealing of a couple before, but I have never been present for the sealing of a family. I think it will be a sweet experience to see children and parents in the temple all together. I look forward to it. Thank you Mike and Jessica for teaching your boys and for letting us be a part of this amazing weekend. We love our family. We are grateful for the good people that surround us and how lucky we are that we have the Gospel in our lives.
