Easter Firsts

This kid got spoiled! Which makes me feel spoiled, funny how gifts for him feel like gifts for me too. 
We had a great Easter this year.  We teach the 12-13 year olds Sunday School class, we did an Easter egg hunt with them and some of the eggs had scriptures telling the story of the Resurrection.  I don't know that I have ever really read the different stories in Luke, Matthew, and Mark.  I loved putting this lesson together, and learning more about the Savior and his atoning sacrifice for us, I probably got more out of it than they did.  Having Ashton in my life makes me even more grateful for the Atonement and for the blessings and opportunity we have to live with God and Jesus again as an eternal family.

After church we headed to the Beckstrand's for Easter Lunch and an Easter egg hunt with all of Ash's little cousins.  

We spent the rest of the evening at the Snyder's for more yummy food and another egg hunt.  Ashton got so much candy which he has lovingly shared with us and a bunch of new clothes from Grandma Snyder  (which he desperately needed since he has grown out of almost everything) and some sweet shades and beach towel from Grandma Beckstrand.

We also got the Pass of all Passes from Seven Peaks!  I am slightly obsessed and cannot wait to take my little dude swimming!
4 month stats:
Length: 26.75"
Weight: 16 lbs. 13 oz.
We are not even on the premature baby charts anymore, he is actually in the 95th percentile for length on the normal baby charts. Tall baby! But he is only in the 12th percentile for head circumference.  Big kid, with a little head I guess.
