The Obamas on Monday welcomed thousands of people in the White House lawns for the annual Easter Egg Roll.

The 135th annual White House Easter Egg Roll saw more than 30,000 people visiting the South Lawn for games, stories, and, of course, the traditional egg roll.

The first family walked amid the pastel-clad crowd, taking part in the egg rolling, sports, cooking stations and story telling, as part of the tradition, which dates back to President Rutherford B Hayes.
