Last week Ryan and I took a mini-vacation to Las Vegas.  We left Salt Lake after Ryan's work orientation, and arrived in Vegas around 8:30pm.  We stayed at the Stratosphere, which is a neat-looking hotel.  The hotel shops featured a magic trick store, which Ryan loved.  The guy behind the counter was really good at magic tricks- he entertained us for a good 30 minutes.  He also helped Ryan pick out some tricks to learn, which he has been showing me periodically.  Fun times.  Vegas is HOT- we walked along the Strip at 11pm and it was 90 degrees!!  I could not ever live there.  The next morning we went to the Las Vegas temple.  It was so beautiful!  It's one of my favorites now.  On the way home, we went to the St. George temple.  That was a different type of cool, because it is so old.  It was completed in 1877.  It even smelled old (but in a good way!).  While driving around looking for a place to eat dinner, Ryan saw an In-N-Out Burger.  No kidding.  I'd never eaten there before, but I've heard many times how amazing it is.  Wow.  It was even better than the hype.  Sadly it is the only one in Utah... and it is 4 and a half hours away.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it!  Must... stop...
Pictures from the trip will be up eventually, but for now we're still working on our honeymoon trip.  The pictures from our trip to Palmyra are up now: click here.  
School for me starts tomorrow at 8:30am.  Ryan starts work Tuesday.  Exciting week!

New Photo Album

We got a new album up on Facebook!  After our reception in Pennsylvania, Ryan and I drove up to New York to see the town I grew up in.  We rode the carousels, and ate spiedies, and visited our old house.  Click here to see pictures from our time in Binghamton.

We've found it hard to put up tons of pictures here on our blog, so instead we'll post links to where you can actually see all our photos!  So far we have:

We will post  more as I find time to get them on Facebook.  
As far as updates go, Ryan has a job!  He's working as a paraprofessional at Edison Elementary here in Salt Lake.  He's been working at registration the past couple days, so I've been home alone.  Weird.  I don't start school until the 25th, so I have a lot of free time.  And no, not all of it is spent reading and playing Nintendo, thank you very much.

A Time To Be Remembered

Ryan: On 17 July 2008, we were sealed for time and all eternity in The Salt Lake Temple. My bride was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I feel so blessed to have an eternal family, and I could not have asked for a better companion. She is true, faithful, kind, patient, sweet, understanding, virtuous and lovely. I think that is a nice way to start out my first blog post! =)

I wanted to create this post so that my family and friends could have a chance to see some of our pictures and hear of our fantastic travels in the days following our marriage. 

So, here we are coming out of the annex just after our sealing. You can see Jordan and Ann Dille, and Jordan's wife Maren in the background.
