Today, President Bush and his wife, Laura, hosted the annual White House Egg Roll, a tradition that goes back to Rutherford B. Hayes' administration in 1878. The event involves thousand of children competing in the Egg Roll race, listening to musical performances, hunting for eggs and other activities. After the First Lady concluded her opening remarks, she and the President walked down to the White House lawn from the podium on the terrace. Along the way President Bush passed an Easter Bunny and, seemingly caught up in the moment, embraced the bunny, laying his head tenderly against it as he posed for a photo.
Watch it, and be sure to check out the slide show from the White House Egg Roll below the video.
