Where there is friction, there is heat.

I agree it's normal. The heat waves could have been engine heat venting any way possible. . . but:

To be clear though, were you braking a lot before you stopped? The brakes will heat up, but if you were turning into your driveway from speed to a safe driveway speed, you shouldn't have heat waves radiating from your brake rotors.

How is your fuel mileage? I'm wondering if you have pads dragging on the rotors somewhere. . .

I bet its the first time you noticed because its the first time you check..Rotors are always warm after driving the car..
I had a bad Caliper on my Durango (piston wasn't moving back) and it smoked a lot when driving.
