This past Monday we had the wonderful opportunity to attend the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House. I hadn’t really looked into this event in the past. In fact, I don’t think I even realized it existed until 2 years ago when I saw my former Operations Officer attend it with her son and husband. That got me thinking about how much fun it would be for our children so I decided to enter the lottery for the next year’s event. Unfortunately, I relied on assumptions of when the lottery would open and didn’t check the website until it was too late and missed out on last year’s event. This year I kind of forgot about the Egg Roll until a Facebook page I follow, Macaroni Kid Pasadena, announced that the lottery was open. I entered our family figuring that the worst that would happen is that we’d get rejected. I promptly forgot about the event again until I got the email about the lottery results. We got selected!
So now a little bit about the process of getting into the White House Easter Egg Roll and our experience that morning.
