28 Hilarious Things That Happened at the White House Easter Egg Roll

Apr 21 2014 - 7:14pm

The Obamas got into the holiday spirit on Monday when they hosted the 136th annual White House Easter Egg Roll. After First Lady Michelle Obama shared an Instagram video of the Easter Egg Roll as a '90s sitcom [1], we knew we could expect some fun from the family, and that was definitely the case. More than 30,000 people gathered on the South Lawn to participate in all the Easter excitement, and along with some egg rolling, the day also featured live music, cooking stations, and storytelling, with the Obamas getting animated as they read to children. The event had an active spin, too, with this year's theme being Hop Into Healthy, Swing Into Shape to support Michelle's Let's Move! initiative. The president showed off his sporty side with kids, and the Obamas' dogs were at the center of the action too. For a look at all the sweet, strange, and hilarious moments from the event, check out 28 things that happened during this year's Easter Egg Roll.
