Yes We Are Alive

Dear Past Blog Followers,

I would like to apologize for the weakness of not posting since February. I promise my life has been more exciting the last 9 months, it's just Jordan and I have been so busy with everything. Lets just show a few pictures of what's happened since I've last posted.

Best Decision I've Made In My Life So Far:

1. I married my best friend, who also turned out to be a lovely bride. Through six months of marriage there has been a lot to learn, but it's so much fun to learn those things together. I love Jordan more and more everything and it seems like I keep finding new qualities about that girl that keeps that love growing. I am so blessed to have her in my life.

Karly's a Married Woman:

My little sister Karly was married a few weeks ago. No, you heard it correctly. Karly was married before Glen. bahahaha. Pressures on bro. haha. But it's crazy to see how much our family is growing. My dad and mom each have a new son-in-law and a new daughter-in-law to enjoy and it's only going to get bigger. Family meetings have become even more special this year as we are slowing growing apart as we go our various ways. When we get together we most certainly have to take advantage of it because it only comes once.

King James Moving to Miami:

Of course I can't post a blog and not mention the change in my favorite basketball player, LeBron James going to Miami to form a talented squad with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. It's been hard to watch, because now LeBron is hated everywhere he goes. Recently he returned to his old arena in Cleveland and dropped 38 points in only 3 quarters of play. Basketball season is in full swing, College Football is wrapping up and I am almost done with school til April because of the track system at BYU-Idaho.

Trip to Boise:

Jordan and I on Karly and Wade's reception a few weeks ago in Boise went to the Anniversary Inn to celebrate our six months together. It was fun. We stayed in the Fisherman's Wharf Suite and loved the theme of the room. I have to give a shoutout to my friend Nataley for helping me get this from Melaleuca. It was fun to go and not have to pay a dime through a rewards program through work. She hooked us up, so had to give her a little shoutout.

The bed was made of a boat.

The bath was filled by water spitting out of the fish.
The shower was a seashell that dripped off like a waterfall.

And the thing that Jordan loved the most was the fishtank in our room.

It was just so nice for Jordan and I to get away. We have had so much to do with school and work that we hardly see each other. It's important that we spend time together by dating regularly as well as a couple and we have enjoyed the time we have been able to spend together. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Well hopefully i'll get better. Especially through the Holidays so you all can know what is going on with Jordan and I. We are so blessed to have the gospel in our lives at this time as well and are so grateful for the blessings of knowing we have a Heavenly Father who loves us and his son who sacrificed so much so we can be here and repent of our wrongdoings. I hope we can all remember the true meaning of Christmas and continue to be lights unto the world and the gospel rolls forth to all four corners of the Earth. Love you all, and love keeping up with you through your blogs, we will try to do the same.


Ryan and Jordan Bennion

I love themed room places. If you ever end up in Pocatello go here: http://www.blackswaninn.com/. Scott and I stayed in the Black swan suite and it was HUGE. That was on our way up to the open house for the Rexburg temple. They also have a sister hotel located conveniently near you in Idaho Falls. That link is Here: http://www.destinationsinn.com/. Anyway, so excited to see you guys have a blog. We have one to if you wanna check it out. http://scottaudreyspence.blogspot.com/

Thats funny you mention that. We stayed at the Black Swann Inn on our Wedding night in the Romeo and Juliet room and then we stayed in Idaho Falls at the Destinations Inn the next night in the Egypt room. Both very different, but very cool in their different regards. Jordan is from Pocatello but thanks for the heads up about that. I'll add you onto my blog list. Hopefully i get better at keeping it up.

Did you really? That's sweet. I'd love to try that destinations one sometime. I had just heard they took over ownership of it not too long ago. I'd love to go back to Black Swan. Not really sure when we'll be in Idaho again. I actually want to go next year in like late spring or early summer. Not sure if you've heard of Bancroft but a lot of my ancestors were from there and my great grandma is buried there. We tried to visit when we were at the Rexburg open house but there was too much snow to make it down the road to the cemetary. Well I'm excited to have another blog to follow! Hope to see you guys at the reunion later this month!
