Yesterday, the First Family hosted a record number of people on the South Lawn in their backyard for the 133rd White House Easter Egg Roll. 30,000 people from around the country embraced this year's theme "Get Up Go!" -- a part of the First Lady's Let's Move! initiative to raise a healthier generation of kids. Highlighted by blue skies, amazing performances, healthy activities and eating -- the event was a huge success!

Check out all of the action and fun from this year's event:
