Twin Falls

Twin Falls has always just been a drive by and glad I don't live in this barren wasteland stop on the freeway.
This weekend proved me wrong.  
Someone loves her daddy.

I wish I had brought my nice camera. Cellphone did pretty good.

Crazy cool canyons in Twin falls.  

Checking out the canyons.

The reason for the trip to Twin Falls is the Boise temple is under construction and this is the next closest.
We were missing the peace that is only found in the temple.  So we decided to make a mini vacation out of it.  
Devin and I switched off attending early morning sessions at the temple. 
Meanwhile the other played with the kids at the hotel, ate, swam and watched Olympics.
Worked out just perfectly.
Later we took the kids back to the temple grounds.
Naomi can I take a picture of you by the flowers?
The temple grounds are among my favorite places ever.
Sweet children by the temple.  
I like this one. I'm pretty sure I'll frame it for their bathroom.
 Picnic at Shoshone falls
We paid for the trip for 3 days and nights afterwards.
Mosquito bites galore.  They love her.  This was only half of them.
Worth it.

See... dressing soooo cute! And PS: Ben could practically transfer to Twin TODAY if we wanted to. Blast this nasty house that we will never be able to sell!

My husband is from Twin Falls, I love it there! And that's where we were married. I love visiting family and canoeing up the river is awesome.
