Squeeeee! We got to go to the White House Easter Egg Roll!!! In our attempt to do any and everything while we live up here I entered the lottery for tickets to the event. There were five different time slots and I had to rank them in order of preference. We didn’t get my preferred time, but the second one.
So, that meant catching a bus from the house at 6:00am! It was an early morning but it was worth it.
I described it to someone as Disney-esque in that everyone was there to make sure you were happy.
We did the traditional Egg Roll first
and then I let the kids decide what we were going to do. We did kind of coerce them to do some yoga (for you Heather),
then we did some hoola hooping,
snack eating (courtesy of Whole Foods) and smoothie drinking,
near Michelle’s famed garden,
and general gawking.
Several celebrities were there. We didn’t see the President and First Lady. They showed up at the time slot after ours, but that’s ok. We did see the cast of Glee (although I would have had no idea had they not stood out), Sara Bareilles,
and Reece Witherspoon.
There were tons of celebrities there throughout the day, but alas, attendees are only allowed a two-hour time slot to get everything done.
It was so neat to be that close to the White House and to take in the coolness of the event.
And when we left the girls each got a commemorative wooden Easter egg and a box of Peeps. Score!
Here’s to being able to go again next year!
