On Friday I participated in the Main Street Mile. The Main Street Mile is a 1 mile fun run through downtown Boise to benefit men's prostate cancer. Most of the family did the race last year, this year it was just Dad and I. My friend Dustin also came and ran again with me. (Well by that I mean we hung out before and after the race because he smokes me in the actual running).
I ran the mile in 10:19, which is about 30 seconds off my normal pace so I was happy with that. And it's about 3 1/2 minutes faster than last year. Dustin finished in 6:21 which was also a new personal best. We're proof Crossfit works! :) Dad also did great and finished the whole race this year. Way to go Dad!

On Saturday, June 13th Adam and Jessica were married! I am so happy for Adam and Jessica and can't wait to see all that happens with these two. Jessica is a true blessing in Adam's life and we're so lucky to have her part of our family now. I also love the fact that there is another short person around.
After the ceremony and congratulations we took a lot of pictures out and about the temple grounds. The pictures seemed to go on forever but it will be nice to have them all. It was a perfect day for pictures too, just a little overcast. This picture is of Adam's side of the party, it includes family from both Mom's side and Dad's side of the family and some friends as well.
Adam being Adam. I love this picture of the two of us, and me in my new dress.
This is Andrew and Dustin, two of Adam's best friends and groomsmen. They also are two great friends of mine. I had a good time hanging out with them over the two days. They're the best!
And finally we have the quilt. This is a Butler Family tradition (my mom's side). People in both families get blank muslin blocks and are asked to create a quilt block to honor the newleyweds. It is fun to see all the blocks arrive at my mom's house and fit them together. The quilt turned out great!
Congratulations Adam and Jessica! I'm SO happy for you two!
