Annual Egg Roll at the Governor’s Mansion

This Saturday, Governor Heineman and First Lady Sally Ganem hosted area families at their annual egg roll. The First Lady is a board member here at Nebraska Children, and we were grateful to have the chance to join the fun.

Kids and parents gathered in the backyard at the Governor’s Mansion in Lincoln. The weather fully cooperated, and the kids enjoyed two bouncehouses, egg races, a treasure hunt, story time, lots of snacks, and of course, the Easter Bunny. Have a look at the day’s events.

Definitely a favorite attraction - kids had 2 bounce houses to choose from.
