4th of July

Happy 4th of July from the Masters Family!! 
Here are some pictures of how we spent our 4th of July. I didn't get any of the fireworks over the river because I was too busy enjoying them. 
It was a wonderful day spent with our little water baby, my parents, and my Grandma Marge. 
We hope you were able to spend the day making memories with the ones you love! 

Mommy's 1st Solo Trip

When Max had to leave on to go fight fires in the Black Hills on June 28th, Liam and I headed to Chamberlain for the weekend. It was my first solo trip with Liam but he proved that I had nothing to worry about. We spent the weekend swimming and fishing to keep our minds off of missing Daddy. 
Liam had so much fun on his first trip to the pool! 

Testing out the water. 

Swimming with Grandma.

We never stopped missing Daddy tho...

We caught tons of fish!

Liam loves fishing with Grandpa!

We were so happy to have Daddy back home on Sunday! We sure miss him A LOT when he leaves!!

Father's Day 2012

We had so much fun celebrating Max's first Father's Day with a camping trip. Mama & Liam got Daddy a new tent so we can spend many more weekends camping together. Liam also got Daddy one of our favorite books, "Just Me and My Dad". Those two love reading the book together already!
If you can't tell from the pictures Liam thinks he has the most amazing Dad in the world and he is absolutely right. I spent so many years waiting to see this man as a Dad and he has been even more amazing then I ever could have imagined. It makes my heart swell with pride to know Liam will grow up with a Dad who loves him, leads him by faith, and will always put him and his Mom first. 
Max is such a blessing in both of our lives. We love you Daddy! 

Liam's 1st Camping Trip

On Father's Day weekend Liam went on his first camping trip! We went to Union Grove State Park by Beresford, SD. It was our first time camping there and we really loved it. We are hoping to go back there in the fall with my parents and do some tent camping. 
Liam loved watching the camp fire. It put him right to sleep!

Mollie still loves camping too!

Our boy was all smiles like usual!

We went on a hike with Papa Bob. 

More smiles!

The Masters' boys got to spend Max's first Father's Day together. 

There was lots of time snuggling Grandma too. 

Liam loves the outdoors as much as his mama & daddy. Camping is only going to get more and more fun as our little man grows up!
