On Friday we went to Thatcher. Kami was graduating from Nursing School (yay Kami!), and we wanted to go to the open house of the Gila Valley temple.
On the way into town, we were all excited to see the new temple as we passed by. I mentioned how beautiful it was, and pointed out the huge golden statue of the angel Moroni on top.
Caleb was definitely impressed. “Wouldn’t it be cool if during the tour they let us climb up and sit on the top of Moroni?” he fantasized.
Josh immediately saw the problem with that idea. “But that would be disrespectful. Because if you were sitting on him, you might accidentally toot on him!”
Caleb continued to fantasize, “Ya, and then the toot would go in his trumpet, and be blasted out over the whole city!”
The thought made all of the boys roar with laughter and cheer. Literally cheer.
It was hard to put on my I-am-not-amused-with-tooting-humor face amidst such hysterical laughter!
