Mr. Liam at 14 months

Liam Wayne Masters.
We love you so much it makes our hearts hurt. 
You make us laugh, cry, want to pull our hair out, surprise us, inspire us, and teach us to love deeper and stronger than we could have ever dreamed.
At 14 months you are...

always a mess, 

climbing on EVERYTHING, 


wanting to be like your daddy in every way, 


total boy,

an explorer,

growing up too fast,

a dare devil, 

a lover of books, 

a hard worker, 

our best buddy,

working on having the EXACT same walk as daddy,


 a lover of animals,
especially your Mollie pup,

and our whole world. 

You repeat words like crazy. And talk jibberish non-stop all day long. 
You love to swing, play in the water, and play with your pets all day long. 
You love to pick up your toys, brush your own hair, and still love to eat everything. 
You love to tell waitresses thank you and they can't believe how polite you are. But you will never tell mama or daddy thank you no matter what. :)
You run full speed everywhere and have incredible balance. 
You love to play with your cars and make car noises all the time. 
You would prefer to be outside always. 
You are our sunshine. 
We thank God every day that you are our son. 

Birthdays & Camping

With Max's birthday on the 14th, mine on the 19th, and a fun weekend of camping in between we had a fun filled week last week! 
I tried a new recipe for Orange Cream cupcakes. Max tells me they are the best he has ever had. Definitely a keeper recipe. Yum!
Max's brother and parents came over for dinner to help us celebrate Max turning 31. 
It was a fun evening! 

Then last weekend we headed to one of our favorite little campgrounds for the weekend. It was a blast and very relaxing. Liam went non stop the whole weekend and napped very hard when we got back home on Sunday. He napped so hard that my birthday dinner in Sioux Falls ended up a lot later than we had originally planned!

Fun with the water table. 

Dancing with Grandpa & Grandma.

Love these expressions. 

Snow Cones are one of our faves when camping!

We went on a hike too!

My awesome mother-in-law made my camping or anytime favorite, cookie salad for dessert on Sunday. It was Liam's first time trying it. Just like his mama, he LOVES it. :)
After he finally woke up from his post-camping nap we headed to my fave Mexican restaurant in Sioux Falls, Chevys for some yummy food. 
A perfect birthday with my boys.
I am so very blessed. 
My 20's were fabulous. I can only imagine how much better my 30's will be. 
SO thankful to have been blessed with another year of this wonderful life!!

Liam"s 1st Yellowstone & Teton Adventure

 Although I MAJORLY cut back on the amount of pictures I was going to post from our trip, prepare comes a massive amount of family vacation photos! Max had a work trip that took us much to close to Yellowstone to not go for the weekend. It was a perfect weekend. Great weather, happy Liam, and of course a happy husband because he was at one of his favorite places in the world.

 Life is good.
