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.
Back to the stage where Fergie was performing.
Off to the craft area where they got to work some magic with their hands.
A pic in front of the official sign on the White House grounds.
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.
No sooner had we got back to the car and they…. well you can see… they crashed!!!!
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.
The souvenir egg from the White House that each of us got in our gift bags that day.
Hope you enjoyed the quick captions and pics.
Peace & Love…
