The south lawn of the White House looked more like a neighborhood park this morning as kids, parents and the First Lady celebrated the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

Kids seven and younger use wooden spoons to push colored eggs across the White House Lawn. Special guests also made appearances including Shrek, Charlie Brown and of course, the Easter Bunny.

Mrs. Bush also took time today to read to the kids a book called Duck for President.

President Bush missed Sunday's event. He was in Arizona talking about immigration reform.

The White House Easter Egg Roll is a favorite for kids and parents around the DC area. The first official Easter Egg Roll was held in 1878.
