White House Easter Egg Roll

100414 Easter 091EditedWe have friends who has a friend who knows someone who got tickets to the White House Egg Roll. They were planning to go to the Egg Roll themselves, but they got sick. 100414 Easter 074And because our friends couldn’t use these tickets, we got to go!100414 Easter 082We loaded our baby toddler into the stroller and stood in line in the hot sun to enter the White House gates.100414 Easter 085Check out the fabulous shirt we got Rock on sale at the end of last Summer. At this point we were all smiles.100414 Easter 098Once inside we got our free goody bag and took in the lay of the land. I saw Michelle and Sasha and Malia Obama walk by but I didn’t have my camera ready. You will just have to believe that that is the truth.100414 Easter 103Other attractions were the stage where Justin Bieber and Sara Bareilles (pictured above) and others performed for the crowd...100414 Easter 093AND there was very healthy (FREE) food to eat...100414 Easter 117EditedAND there was J.K. ROWLING AUTHOR OF HARRY POTTER!!! If only we had known she would be there, we would have brought a book for her to sign!100414 Easter 105But it was SUPER hot in the sun and it was naptime and the smiles from the 2.5 year old boy quickly faded.100414 Easter 106Louisa beat the heat by sleeping in her stroller. For the record, I kept her covered up for most of the day. 100414 Easter 110Edited100414 Easter 113Edited Next year we recommend that they get better people to man the Easter Egg Roll photo-op sign. When you are trying to get a picture in front of the White House, you should at least get the White House in the picture!100414 Easter 119EditedWe had a lot of fun, but we didn’t actually roll an egg because we all burnt out quickly.100414 Easter 120Some of us more quickly than others.100414 Easter 125Are we sweaty or what?! Thanks again to the Colemans for getting sick so we could give our kids and ourselves a (most likely) once-in-a-lifetime-experience!

Yeah, sounds very awesome. Except the Justin Beiber and Sara Bareilles part. Well especially the Bieber.

Yeah, they SAY Justin is 16...I'd say 12, 13 at most!
