The Obamas GET COLORFUL For The 134th Annual White House Easter Egg Roll


The Obama Family put on their bright spring colors this morning to celebrate the White House's 134th annual Easter Egg Roll.  See pics and get deets inside....

Along with the Easter Bunny, President Obama, First Lady Michelle, and First Granny Marian Robinson & First Daughters Sasha & Malia helped celebrate the 134th anniversary of the White House Easter Egg Roll today.  The event used to be held on the Capitol grounds until the late 1870s before President Rutherford B. Hayes moved the roll to the White House lawn in 1878.  Now everyday citizens can enter a lottery to win the few tickets that allow them and their families to roll Easter Eggs with the First Family.

This year, the roll carried the “Let's Go, Let's Play, Let's Move” theme in line with First Lady Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign.

The event kicked off with Rachel Crow singing the National Anthem and activities included cooking demonstrations, sports, hunting for hidden eggs and the egg roll itself, a contest to roll brightly-colored eggs across the White House lawn using wooden spoons.  

There were also appearance and performances from celebs like Janelle Monae, story time with celebs like Julianne Moore and Forest Whitaker and dancing with DJ Jazzy Jeff.

President Obama coached a few events and then showed the Harlem Globetrotters his basketball & push-up skills.  I would say how sexy this pic is but it may be inappropriate so....

And then Mr. President broke out a wooden spoon and helped some adorable kids roll their eggs.  First Lady Michelle Obama said, "I think the president is going to try to beat a three-year old."
