Monday marked the 134th annual White House Easter Egg Roll. During the Easter Egg Roll, kids roll their favorite hard-boiled and decorated egg down the South Lawn at the White House. The tradition was started in 1878 by President Rutherford B. Hayes.
This year’s theme was “Let’s Go, Let’s Play, Let’s Move.”
“My job is very simple,” said President Barack Obama. “It is to introduce the powerhouse of the White House.”
The President was referring to Michelle Obama. The day was filled with a number of fitness events, including a basketball clinic. All of those who participated in the event, which was hosted by professional players, got up close and personal with the President.
The basketballs used by the children featured a picture of Obama.
