Obamas Keep Easter Rolling at the White House

Obamas Keep Easter Rolling at the White House

The first family invited 30,000 friends (and a handful of bunnies) over today to participate in the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. This is the first year that tickets to the event were distributed online. The White House boiled and dyed 13,000 eggs for the roll, and all children under 10 will receive a wooden egg souvenir.

The Obamas are also using the tradition that dates back to 1878 as a chance to highlight healthy living. There are kid yoga classes, dance workshops, basketball games, and other physical activities planned. The kids were also treated to a performance by Fergie and a presidential reading of Where the Wild Things Are.
