On Monday, the boy and I were thrilled to take part in the 134th Annual White House Easter Egg Roll, courtesy of Let’s Move and the White House’s . We’d been before, three years ago, and were pleased to see that there was some food this time around — drinks from Honest Tea while you waited in line and apples and oranges courtesy of Whole Foods at the “Farmers Market.”
There were so many activities my son wanted to do that I didn’t get to chat with the chef manning the garden (not my buddy Sam, this time), but the boy did want to watch Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern‘s cooking demo. (I’m trying to track down his porcupine dumpling recipe. In the meantime, you can watch each chef’s demo here.) We then did the obstacle course, rolled the egg of course, and picked up our souvenir egg on the way out.
Read on to see the highlights …. and the surprise parting gift at the end. (Yeah yeah, everything in moderation, right?) And I also have to give a quick shout-out to Kaboom! and KidTribe, two kids’ fitness organizations who led activities at the event.
