Tate is such a good boy. He is an awesome big brother. He watches out for his little bro and sis, and is pretty good at playing with them and sharing his things, except for his Legos! Those are so special to him, and he loves creating things. Tate is very tender hearted and shows kindness to everyone. He is an excellent student at school and has a creative mind. He really excels at math and memorization. We are so glad Tate is our sweet boy, and we love him so much.
We celebrated his birthday all weekend starting with a party for his friends on Thursday after school. I told him he could invite whoever he wanted, and he wound up inviting 30 kids! We had about 25 show up. Next year there will definitely be a limited guest list! The kids had a great time playing lego games, building with legos, hitting the pinata, and eating an awesome lego cake that aunt Katie made.
Friday morning Tate got to open his presents, legos (of course!), a lego shirt, and an easy bake oven - he's been wanting one of those for a while now. Maybe he'll be an expert pastry chef like his aunt Katie! He got to go to lunch with his Grammy Elaine - who he shares a birthday with, and then we all went to Red Robin for birthday dinner. What a fun day!
We continued the fun the next morning at the ward Easter egg hunt and breakfast. John made sure Joslyn had all the right strategies for getting the most eggs!

Sunday was a very nice day. We spent it remembering the wonderful atoning sacrifice of our Savior and being together as a family.
The kids were super excited to see what surprises were in their Easter baskets.
All ready for church.
Smile for grandpa!
Had to finish the day with one more Easter egg hunt at McDowells.
Who said the candy is just for the kids?
