SPRINGFIELD, MO (KFVS) -

A couple from Oak Ridge, Missouri got a once-in-a-lifetime experience: they met President Donald Trump during his trip to Springfield, Mo. on Wed., Aug. 31.

Greg and Ashley Martin took their 2-month-old daughter, Lillian, with them to Springfield.

They were lucky enough to be on the runway at the Branson-Springfield Airport as the president landed for his tax reform campaign kick off.

The couple shook hands with Mr. Trump. He also admired Lillian and signed her arm!

"He touched her, and signed her. I don't think that was on purpose, but he did," Ashley Martin said. "He told us she was beautiful and he told us to keep her out of the sun."

Greg Martin had this to say about the moment: "No better word than surreal, definitely. It was an emotional experience. One for the books. You're never going to forget it."

President Trump also signed one of his signature 'Make America Great Again' hats for the Martins.

Greg and Ashley said they'll tell Lillian about her presidential experience when she's a little older.
