On Tuesday, we had a special opportunity to go see the Angel Moroni get placed atop the new Gilbert Temple.
It has been so fun to live so close (about 5 miles) to a temple being built. We have watched it's progress for the past year. But it was so wonderful to be there for this part. I pulled the kids out of school a little early and we went and sat across the street from the temple in 105 degree weather. We were hot, but it was so worth it. I'm so grateful that my kids have that memory. They'll always have a special feeling toward "their" temple! How blessed we are to have temples and to have a beautiful one so close!
And finally, tonight was Danny's 38th birthday. We are now the same age for a month!
We celebrated with some pie and a few "practical" gifts (his favorite kind!) We sure love that daddy of ours and hope that he had a good birthday!
Tomorrow, Jesse has a State fair at school presenting his project on National Historic sites of AZ, then all the boys are heading out to the father/son camp out, Grace has a birthday party to go to, then we get to hang out...just us girls. Ad then it's on to our last week of school and all the craziness that comes with it (kinder graduation, academic lunches and so on!) Bring it on...I'm ready!
