President Biden and first lady Jill Biden welcome families to the White House for the Easter Egg Roll. It’s the first since Biden took office, after last year’s event was canceled because of COVID-19.
JOE BIDEN: Jill and I are excited to have you at the White House. We weren't able to host this Easter Egg Roll last year because of the pandemic. But this year, this year we're finally getting together again.
And it's so special. It means so much to see and hear the children and all the families show up to be here today. The joy, the laughter, and the occasional, at least with my young grandson it's only to the occasional, there's Easter Bunny. A little startle sometimes. But the joy and the laughter is something that has been a wonderful tradition here at the White House for a long, long time.
I especially want to thank the White House Historical Association, the National Park Service, and America's Egg Board for all their hard work to make this day possible. Let's give them a round of applause.
All of you, have fun today. And welcome to the White House. Welcome to your house. Welcome to the South Lawn. Thank you, and happy, happy Easter.
