Eggcellent Weather for White House Easter Egg Roll

Jeff Malet

Thousands of kids joined the first family on a sunny Easter Monday for the 136th White House annual Easter Egg Roll. An estimated 30,000 were on hand to see President Barack Obama introduce his wife Michelle as "the person who makes this all possible." The theme of this year's egg roll was “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape,” part of the first lady’s Let’s Move initiative. The president once again read from “Where the Wild Things Are,” and the first lady greeted scores of children with hugs. The Obama daughters, Sasha and Malia, could not attend because they were in school, but first dogs Bo and Sunny were on hand to greet the visitors.
