Aunt Annie's Visit - Glacier NP & Camping

Aunt Annie had a great 2 week visit - at least we thought it was great; Aunt Annie may have found domestic life with kids a bit much after the first few days!   We are hoping she'll consider coming again during ski season (Christmas??)   Anyway, we went to Glacier National Park for 2 nights of camping at Fish Creek Campground on McDonald Lake.   Aunt Annie and Brian trekked the entire High Line Trail, all 14 miles across the peaks of the park with views of Grinell Glacier.   Little Annie, Jake and I did a section of the trail and we walked right past a few mountain goats lounging on the rocks (see top picture).   Aunt Annie requested no additional pictures of her, which I honored, as I also don't always like to be in pictures.    The bottom pictures are from an overnight camping trip to Rainy Lake, where we canoed, camped, swam and fished - a last hurrah before school starts on Tuesday.

Annie's Birthday!

Little Annie had a fun 7 year-old celebration.  It started on the eve of her birthday with a small family affair - presents, cake and the like.   Her namesake, Aunt Annie, is also visiting, which adds to the excitement.   On August 14th, she had a party with her friends.  We did some crafts, painted toe/finger nails, made tie-dye t-shirts and danced.
