White House Easter Egg Roll

I told y’all a few weeks back that I was taking my nieces to the White House for the Easter Egg Roll. Well… here’s the recap.

I got up early, early and headed over to my sister’s where the girls were ready to go. This pic of them sitting on the couch was taken at 6:10am. So yeah, they had to have been up with me at 5am.

Made the 45 minute drive to downtown DC. Found a parking garage and were on the White House grounds by 7:15am. It was cold out that joint. As you can see, we’re bundled up like it was still mid winter.

Made it through Secret Service past the gates around 8:20am and went straight to the Easter Egg Roll line.

If I recall, some point in the day my oldest niece said “I want to be Vice-President!!!”. Her look in this photo definitely says that. She looks so proud.

Took a quick pic with all of us. The girls, my sister and me.

Don’t ask me who was performing. I just know that the girls had an enjoyable time dancing and jumping around for the next 20 minutes.

They ran to this character. I have no clue who this is. He wasn’t around when I was watching morning cartoons… LOL.

Off to the craft area where they got to work some magic with their hands.

Another character that I don’t know. But trust that they ran to her also. Looks like a sistah…

Rollin’ out after a morning of fun. President Barack Obama and family came out shortly after we departed. We still had a great time even though we didn’t get to see them.

Had to wake them up so they could fill them stomachs. A good uncle doesn’t just give them granola bars, a banana and a juice box and then take them back home. It was still breakfast time, so we got full.
