We lucked out this year and got tickets to the White House Easter Egg Roll that was held last Monday. Here are a few pictures of us on the South Lawn.
Noah really wanted to do the egg roll, so that’s where we headed first. The president came out to speak while we were standing in line, and we had a great view since the egg roll was the closest activity to the White House.
Here is a short video too. As quick reminder: If you’re reading this post in an email, you may need to open the blog webpage in order to view the video. To do so, just click on the title of the post (the link in blue) at the top of the email to open the blog in your web browser.
And here are a few pictures of the U.S. Marine Band that played before and after the president spoke.
Now back to the egg roll: Noah’s technique was more of a heave-ho than a roll. Ha! This was his favorite part of the day.
Then we decorated cookies…
Other activities included an Easter egg hunt, music, storytime, and lawn bowling. And on the Ellipse, there was a long line of egg cutouts for the states. Here is Noah with the Virginia and South Dakota eggs.
As you can tell from all the photos, it was a very chilly day to be outside, but we had a great time. It’s not every day that you can hang out at the White House! More than 30,000 people attended the Easter Egg Roll over the course of the day—pretty cool!
We went to the Easter Egg Roll in 2013 and 2014 too. The 2013 egg roll was notable because we got to hear President Obama read a book during storytime, and the 2014 egg roll was extra special because Grandma Debbie and Grandpa Rod got to join us since they were here on vacation. Here is our collection of wooden eggs from the White House…
It’s been a lot of fun to experience the same events at different ages and see how Noah’s interests change as he gets older.
Stay tuned to read more about Noah’s Easter festivities with friends and family. The last few weeks have been busy!
