On Monday, President Obama and the first lady hosted the annual Easter Egg Roll on the White House South Lawn. Beyond the egg rolling itself, highlights included music, games, storytelling, cooking stations and an appearance by Robbie Novak, the YouTube star who plays "Kid President."  

Not quite a highlight for the real president: Shooting around on the basketball court amid a group of kids as well as pros from the Washington Wizards. According to reports, Obama made only two of approximately 22 shots attempted.

"He couldn't make one," said Kahron Campbell, 10, of Landover, Md. "I had to help him out."
