Day 19- Twin Falls

We spent the morning in Ogden, Utah (just north of Salt Lake City) taking care of some issues.  We had to get the oil changed in the truck, get the tires rotated, and fix the battery problem with the camper.  This is the first time we have seen rain during our trip- not too shabby for 19 days.  The boys spent the morning doing puzzles and practicing the trumpet, along with some bike riding in the rain.  

 We drove to Twin Falls, Idaho where David added a second battery and rewired the original.  Let me just say, David is not a handy man at all and I am super proud of him.  Our last camp host told him what he needed to do to fix the problem and David went and purchased the supplies, fixed the problem and added a second battery to give us more juice when we are dry camping.  This is nothing like anything he has done before and I can not be more proud of him for tackling this project.
We stayed in Heyburn, which is about 40 miles east of Twin Falls.  We just didn't want to take the camper out there for 80 miles round trip at 8 miles to the gallon.  We stopped on our way over to the falls to get Root Beer Floats.  We originally ordered 3 small and 2 large.  The cashier told us they were all $2 so I ordered a large for everyone.  David said I was going to regret that because the kids would spill them.  There was only one slight spill - and it wasn't me or any of the kids.  I will just leave it at that :) As you can see from the picture below, Hunter was delighted with the float! 
 Then we headed to Shoshone Falls, which is known as the Niagra of the West.
 We were not disappointed.  
 There were so many small waterfalls and it was just beautiful!

We even saw a double rainbow in the mist of the water falling!
The whole Snake River is just fabulous and we wish we had more time to explore the area.
