White House Easter Egg Roll

Yesterday was the 2011 White House Easter Egg Roll!

While people from all over the country showed up for it, I am fortunate to live close enough that I am just a few Metro stops away. (I feel really bad for the people who traveled here from really far away.)

My moms friend got me, my sister and lovely nieces tickets to the event. I meant to post this yesterday but was so burnt out.

While I am glad to say that I was lucky enough to go to such a cool event, I probably wouldn't do it again.We waited in line for over an hour to get in, and once we got in there were nothing but more lines. Not to mention it was stinking hot, ridiculously crowded and we had an over heated two year old.

We took a few pictures, did the egg hunt, saw Colbie Caillet and Kelly Ripa do their thing and it was time to go. I left with achy feet, an awkward sunburn on my nose, shoulder and forehead, cranky girls (including my sister) but at least we have some more family memories to add to the album!

Hope everyone else had a great holiday!

Before we waited in an hour long line in the blistering sun.
Still happy, waiting in line.
Finally through the gate!

They gave us Peeps and wooden eggs as parting gifts. Eating the wooden eggs probably would have been more nutritious!
