My roommate and I got to volunteer at the annual White House Easter Egg roll today. We woke up around 5am and arrived at the giant gates around 6. After we were equipped with our white billed hats, and aprons adorning the 2 scottish terriors, we headed to our assignment. As Easter Artists, we handed out tshirts for the Wyland Foundation - sponsored by Wyland. Wyland is an artist who does under the sea scenes. (This year's easter egg theme was save the oceans). Next to the tent we worked at he had a giant mural he was working on alongside kids.
It was pretty cool.
The best part was when President Bush and Laura greeted the crowds and said hello and g'morning from the balcony. I was about 20 feet away and caught a great amount of it on video and camera. What a great Monday in DC!
