Bringing Joshua Home...
On Sunday, August 22 Henry, Denise and Mark drove down to Salt Lake City, (SLC) Utah to pick up Joshua. We drove down to Boise and stayed there overnight then got up early and headed down to SLC. We were able to make it down there around 11:00AM on Monday morning and discharge went quickly. We headed to Apollo Burger for lunch (Joshua's request). Then, we went to Mrs. Cavanaugh's for a tour of the candy factory (another suggestion from Joshua).
Tracy Aviary. Tracy Aviary is committed to inspiring curiosity and caring for birds and nature through education and conservation. Joshua really enjoyed the ducks there. Two geese got into a fight which was "fun" to watch them honking at each other and trying to goose each other. The pecking order is real!
On Tuesday morning, we went to the Natural History Museum in SLC. The Natural History Museum of Utah illuminates the natural world and the place of humans within it. There were exhibits ranging from dinosaurs, and gems and minerals to Native American artifacts. Currently, they have a special exhibition of Egypt: Land of Pharaohs with a real mummy on display. We grabbed lunch and then hit the road back to Boise.
Shoshone Falls which is often referred to as The Niagara of the West (my pic really does not do it justice!). At 212 feet tall and 900 foot wide, Shoshone Falls is one of the largest natural waterfalls in the United States surpassing the height of Niagara Falls. Shoshone Falls is located on the Snake River as it carves its way through a deep basalt Canyon on its way to the Columbia River. Ponderosa State Park in McCall, Idaho. This is Lake Payette in the pic.
Have an eggcellent day!
