That is a heart that he is holding up that he made for me...just in case you couldn't tell. How cute!
Now...try and guess this one. Well, it was suppose to be the NYC Skyline but we deicded it looked more like March of the Penguins.
|March of the Penguins|
Can you see it? It's quite amazing! The big penguin in front with the penguin in a pouch (do Penguins have pouches?), the middle one has a wing and then the baby in the back? Totally amazing, right? We went to at my Grandparents Church in St. George and then went to visit the St. George Temple and it was beautiful.
On Monday Aaron started work and I nannyed all day. It was a little bit of a crazy day for both of us. Aaron had a full day of new work, wasn't able to move into his apartment and locked his keys in the car so sadly we weren't able to see each other, but made plans for the next day.
On Tuesday though I headed to Provo and met up with Aaron. We went to the BYU Library so Aaron could fill out and print some papers he needed, then we headed to the grocery store to feed Aaron for the week. Aaron found Honey Vanilla Body Wash that he thought could maybe double as food and to clean himself in the shower. Haha.

|We packed up some of the snacks for our long car ride!|
|Yes...the Jacket is big on me...my arms are NOT that big :)|
We went on a trail up the mountain for about 30 minutes and had a fun time going over rocks, up and down hills, through trees and almost into a big mud puddle. I was informed by Aaron afterwards, "I now understand why boys go faster...because the faster I went, the tighter you held on!" Haha, good to know :) We then left the cabin about 3 and headed to Las Vegas for the weekend to be with Aaron's family and so he could see one of his cousins being sealed in the temple. On our way there we saw SO many signs promoting this little treasure:
|Woo Hoo! What A Deal!|
|Our "Chinese" Faces|
We pulled into Las Vegas about 10pm and spent the night at Aaron's family the Green's house. We had a fun time visiting (for me, meeting) with the family until about midnight and then sleepily headed to bed. We slept in the next morning since the sealing wasn't until 3. We woke up to a house full of family. I had a great time meeting everyone, helping get food ready for later and I even had the chance to play "Pokemon Trainer Battle" board game with some of the kids there and I won!!! Haha, quite an accomplishment and now I can officially be apart of the family! We then headed to the Las Vegas Temple for the sealing.

I couldn't go in and so I waited in the lobby and read the Ensign. Let me just tell you...being apart, for almost an hour, reading marriage talks, in the temple...is not good. I cried a little and when Aaron came back I ran into his arms and hugged him like it had been years.
We went outside the temple, took some pictures with everyone and let me tell you...I have NEVER experienced a more windy day in my life. My hair was all over the place and the wind even made Aaron's shirt expanded to make him look fat. Haha.
|Aaron...in about 20 years :)|
Aaron and his cousin Alex then for some reason went into Michael Jackson mode and started singing and dancing "MJ" style. They knew the moves and everything so here is a glimpse of the little show that we witnessed going on outside the temple :)

We got up early and left the next morning to drive back up to Salt Lake for me to catch my flight home. We drove to St. George and went to church and then we just kept driving. We made a quick stop in Fillmore, Utah to get gas and this is what happened.
|Good Old Fillmore!|
We then got back in the car and Aaron said he needed to stretch a little more and so I recomended he run around the car 5 times. He said, "Ok, but don't you dare pull out that camera!" So he got out, I locked the car and he began to do some weird stretches outside the car. Here they are for you to see:
And here he is peering into the window and wanting me to open the locked door for him...don't worry, I eventually did :)
|We are SO young!|
We then said a sad goodbye to each other as we won't be seeing each other for about 3 weeks. So...more long distance for us and though these 3 weeks will probably be longer than the 6 months we "dated" apart, it will be good. We will survive and as the motto for our relationship comes up again, "We Don't Do Easy Things" and I am sure it will just make our relationship that much stronger. So if there are fewer posts these next 3 weeks...you know why.
