Glacier National Park Day Trip with Cousins

It was a gorgeous August Day up on Logan Pass in Glacier National Park. The kids were all in good spirits and ready for an adventure and for whatever reason I wasn't short of breath on this particular day (at 36 weeks pregnant I get short of breath when I walk to the bathroom!). This is the boardwalk trail that leads to Hidden Lake. Although we didn't make it the full 1 1/2 miles up to Hidden Lake, we did hike up a mile and the mile back seemed like a breeze.

This mountain goat family was just about 8 feet in front of the kids! It looked like a mom, dad, and twins. Very exciting!
We stopped for lunch on this big rock.
People could not help themselves commenting on our family. They saw how pregnant I am and the five kids and Mat and assumed we were one family. Penny just turned two, Sonna is 3 years and 3 months, Simon is 4 years and 8 months, Mara is 5 years and 3 months, and Claire is 6 years and 1 month!

I was so impressed with Penny who just turned 2. She walked the whole way and climbed the steps like one of the big kids.
The kids all get along so well. It was such a fun four days together!
