White House Easter Egg Roll: 7 Kids Killing It on the South Lawn

From serious meltdowns to seriously awesome costumes.

— -- The White House’s biggest public event began, improbably, with a couple of whiny kids.

So in honor of those 19th-century belly-aching young’uns who approached President Hayes, here are seven children totally #killingit at past Egg Rolls:

1. This kid, whose meltdown scored him an audience with the president. (Hey, it worked on Rutherford B. Hayes!)

3. This girl in lady bug boots who impressed the commander-in-chief with her mad egg-rolling skillz in 2009.

5. This adorable “wild thing” gnashing his teeth with first daughter Jenna Bush during a reading of Maurice Sendak’s famous picture book in 2008.
