2017 White House Easter Egg Roll

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!

I didn’t even realize it but I have a marathon to run in 2 weeks! I’m excited =). I feel a lot more prepared than I have for the last 2 marathons. I’m excited to see how I do!

Well, I’ll keep this short as I’m working the day shift this week and have to get up at 3:30 tomorrow.
