EasterOn Sunday, President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters Malia and Sasha, celebrate their last Easter Day at The White House.? In doing so, they welcomed 35,000 guests to the White House?s South Lawn to join in the festivities of their last Easter Egg Roll.????

?We wanted to change things up here in the White House a little bit.? We wanted to open the doors really wide to a bunch of different folks who usually don?t get access to this place,? the First Lady said in a statement.

Kids competed in games, and the President participated in storybook time where he read books to some of the kids. There were also cooking demonstrations, sports courts and design contests.

This year?s theme was ?Let?s Celebrate!? and celebrate they did. Echoing the First Lady?s ?Let?s Move!? initiative from 2010 when she made a push to tackle childhood obesity, this year the ?White House Fun Run? was added to the roster of events to inspire staying in shape.
