4th of July

Big Fork has a great parade that we went to. Katherine lives just a couple blocks from the main street so we were able to just walk.

Canyon's first parade.

We had to get there a little early so we could get seats so Canyon took a little nap before all the fun.

After the parade we headed back to the house and took Canyon to the lake. He loves water!

It was finally time to head down to watch the fireworks. Their neighbor does his own amazing display right off the dock. It was awesome.

Everyone waiting !

These fireworks were huge and literally right above our heads!

Luckily Canyon liked it and the big bangs didn't scare him!

It was such a fun trip!

Daddy's heaven on earth!

We headed up to Big Fork, Mt for the 4th of July holiday. The first day we headed up to Glacier. Brad was literally in heaven. We drove to the east side of the park to Many Glaciers. We did a beautiful trail that led to a waterfall. They had record snow that year and some of the trails were closed due to the snow pack.

Canyon was so good. he was in his backpack for a long time and just looked around!

This little boy takes after his daddy and loves being outdoors

When we headed back down he crashed.
That night everyone else came up to Katherine's and so the next day we headed back up to Glacier with the whole family.

We just went to the touristy stops with them.

This lake (McDonald I think) was so beautiful and the prettiest green color.

We had a picnic lunch then we headed out to do some real hiking!

This time we headed to the northwest part of the park. We went on dirt, gravel roads to get up to Bowman lake. Brad was determined to see a bear, but Canyon turned into our bear replant. I guess he had his fill of the backpack the day before and did not want to be in it today. We lasted about 10 min on our hike. We went back by the shore of the lake and just enjoyed the beauty. I think Canyon and I cramped Brads style this trip!

Family Pictures

I wanted to get family pictures before the boys left for the summer. They actually turned out pretty good! I am so lucky to have such an amazing (and cute!) family. Brad flew down with the boys to drop them off with their dad, and on the way home he had an 8 hr layover so he could see his family.
