Good evening folks! Hope your Monday after Easter was a good one.
Tommy, Ava, and I had the pleasure of attending the White House Easter Egg Roll this morning. The event is an annual tradition that welcomes thousands of kids and their families to the White House to partake in fun fitness activities, storybook telling, musical acts, food demos and more.
Attendees must enter and win tickets through a nation-wide lottery system that becomes open for a certain time period before the event. On a last-minute whim (seriously the final hours before the lottery closed) I decided to register for the Egg Roll. A few weeks later I found out that not only had we secured tickets, but we also got our preferred time slot – which happened to be the perfect slot as it was when President Obama and First Lady Michelle made their welcome remarks! We also passed by Jay Z, Beyoncé and Blue Ivy. ? We saw the Obamas up close several times while we were there.
I’m hoping we’ll get another opportunity to go when Ava is a bit older and can really participate in the activities. Today was a pretty great day for our little family though.
Here are some photos from our morning.
We lucked out with the weather. Our group’s time slot was from 9:45am – 11:45am. At 9:15am it was still raining in the area. However at 9:45am the rain had stopped and minutes later the sun was out in full force!
Have a wonderful night.
