Waterton and Glacier National Parks

Thursday is a big day around here…..Dan turns 40!  He didn’t want a big party, so we decided to take a fun family vacation…

ROAD TRIP TO GLACIER!

We took a ton of pictures and video. So sit back and enjoy a few fun pics! And at the end of the post, you can view the latest and greatest family video!

Our first stop was Waterton Park, Canada, which is the Canadian part of Glacier.

It was so beautiful. And we saw our first bear there too!  Thankfully, we were in our car and not hiking on a trail at the time.

After a few days in Waterton Park, we ventured down into Montana to Glacier National Park.

Both Dan and I loved the one on one time with the kids….

The weather wasn’t ideal. In fact, it was downright cold on a lot of days.  We just learned to accept the rain and make the most of it!

Though, occasionally we’d get lucky and see a little sun!

We tried to find a healthy balance between hiking and stopping and playing as well.  The kids were troopers!

Most of the time, that is.  There was one day where we may have gotten a touch lost in Glacier in the pouring rain.  And there may have been two scared kids and some tears.

Finding the trail that led us back to our car was a happy moment.

We saw a moose up close….

Even on a cloudy day, Glacier was beautiful.

For some reason, I was focussed on crossing the continental divide….

Dan was kind enough to pull over for a picture.

The trip was a great way to celebrate Dan.  And to enjoy some quality family time together.

Happy 40th birthday, Dan!
