Mother's Day

Mason is being cuddly with Mommy for her Mother's Day present.
Until he started posing.

Daddy and Aunties Melissa and Tiffany made cinnamon rolls, then we all went over to Grandma Blake's for dinner.  Mason loves playing at Grandma's!

Father and sons campout

Mason got to go on a father and sons campout with Daddy, Grandpa, Uncle Jeremy, Uncle Jeffrey...

 ...and Auntie Melissa!  (Yes, it was father and sons, but some girls ended up being invited.)  Here he is getting ready to eat his hotdogs cooked over a fire! 

All the adults had tin foil dinners, but Mason doesn't really like hamburger, so he got hotdogs.

Grandpa made homemade root beer!  Mason wasn't interested, he prefers his H2O sugarless.

After dinner, the uncles and Daddy went to put up the tent.  Mason found something more interesting to do in front of Grandpa's truck.

Digging is fun!

Then, when he saw the tent, he thought it was amazing!

He liked to push his head against the netting, and look around at everyone.

Then they played games.

Uncle Jeff brought a giant Frisbee, and it was fun to throw.

Then they roasted marshmallows over the fire.  Mason wasn't interested in those either, though the next morning he discovered that they melt if you throw them in the fire.

It took him a long time to fall asleep that night, there was so much excitement going on! Lights and talking, and loud booms from the scout camp nearby.  Uncle Jeff finally rocked him to sleep sometime after 11.
Tired baby boy!
Then everyone but Mason woke up way early (like 4:30 am early) and went out to have fun, like rebuilding the fire.

Mason woke up around 6:30.

He had eggs for breakfast, and was he hungry!

After breakfast it was time to take down the cool tent.

Isn't it nice being a toddler?  The adults do all the work for you!

Then more playtime!  First wandering around in the grass. . .

then playing with a ball with everyone.

Then it was time to go home again.  Mason missed Mommy, but had a really fun time on his frist campout!
He got home around 10, and went straight down for a 2 hour nap.  Gotta make up the sleep somehow!
