White House Easter Egg Roll

The White House Easter Egg Roll is an amazing experience; lots of activities, lots of posing for pictures and lots of people. We had fun this year. Carter and Luke participated in the egg roll, face painting (a picture of the President's dog), watching shows and more. Brayden tolerated the whole experience with a not so smooth ride in the stroller and was pulled out for a few photo ops.

Press Release - President Carter Paxton Jenkins

A visit to the White House for the Easter Egg Roll provided Carter with an opportunity for his first press conference.

As Carter was getting dressed for Easter, he declared that his tie made him President; President Carter Jenkins. Passing through the West Wing lawn, there is the press room and outside is all of the press cameras and microphones, we had to seize the moment for Carter to make his first White House speech.

Lights Out

Living in Waterford provides opportunities for new adventures. We have found that bad weather brings along power outage, usually for several hours. Thankfully we have our trusty generator that supports a few important things in the house. Last night we lost power for over 10 hours. Jeremy built a large fire and the boys brought in sleeping bags to camp out in the family room. Luke was so excited about the "camping" that he couldn't go to sleep and ended up sleeping with me in bed.
