2013 WH Easter Egg RollOn Monday April 1, 2013, the First Family
will host the 135th annual White House Easter Egg Roll. This year, more than
35,000 people from all 50 states will be joining us on the South Lawn for games,
stories, and, of course, the traditional egg roll.

In addition to all the fun and games, the day’s activities — which will include
sports courts and cooking demonstrations — will help educate families on smart
ways to incorporate healthy eating and exercise choices into their daily
routines, which are key pillars of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative.

      LOL Indeed. When I visited them in January, I MARVELED at how both she and my son-in-law care for him. They’ve got his daily routine on lockdown! And he relies on them to make sure he sticks to it. Tell me this isn’t how a kid receives love from his parents; that structure means everything.

    Wonderful gallery, SG2. Thank you. So sad Lil Buddha didn’t get to go to this.

  11. Athletes, stars join Obama for Easter Egg Roll

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Easter Bunny, dozens of professional athletes and thousands of children were hippity-hopping across the White House’s South Lawn Monday as President Barack Obama and his family were leading the annual Easter Egg Roll.

    The theme of this year’s event is “Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!” — fitting with first lady Michelle Obama’s campaign to lower childhood obesity rates by encouraging physical activity. The president’s basketball court was open for play, along with an obstacle course and yoga garden.

    A dance party was set up at the “Hop To It Stage,” and professional athletes and coaches were helping teach their sports in the “Eggtivity Zone.” Among the stars scheduled to attend were Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, gymnast John Orozco and Washington Wizards point guard John Wall.

    Two of the younger celebrities in Monday’s lineup are Oscar-nominated actress Quvenzhane Wallis, star of “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” and Robbie Novak, who plays “Kid President” in a series of popular YouTube videos. A track suit-clad Elmo and other “Sesame Street” Muppets performed and encouraged exercise.

    The White House had warned more than 35,000 expected attendees that the 135-year tradition could have been cancelled because of budget battles with Congress this year. White House tours have been called off because of government-wide spending cuts, but the egg roll was not.
