First let me say...there were over 30,000 people at this event. From what I understand it was the largest in history. Trust me to pick this time to attend...lol. It was a madhouse. Our scheduled time was 1:45 to 3:45. Definitely a bad time to have picked. I thought that was an ideal time but it wasnt. The temp was horrible because it was supposed to be mid 70's and turned out to be almost 90. Let me start from the beginning. I ended up getting hurt on in the middle of the night on Saturday when I had to go to the bathroom and attempted to return to the couch where Tony, Keyana and I were sleeping. Jamie has this evil coffee table that is made from some sort of extremely hard material with sharp edges. Its not rounded at all. More like something you would see in a business office or something. I went to reach for the couch, lost my balance and fell straight into that damned thing hitting my left knee on the corner edge, then my right hip then both knees onto his floor which is tile covered with a thin rug. I was in agony and had to throw toys at Tony to wake him up to help me up. Oh...one reason I fell was all the toys all over the floor. Sigh. Then on Monday we had to wake the girls up by 8 to start getting them ready to leave by 9:30 to get to the Metro train we wanted to take which we wanted to leave at 11 or so. Well...that kind of went ok...lol. Then we get to the Metro lot and had to drive around for around an hour in their parking garage looking for a place to park! It was packed full. We tried to leave the garage at one point but you couldnt without some smart card and we couldnt get a smart card without riding the Metro! There was no attendant in the booth! It was idiotic. Finally we found a spot. One! We got on the Metro and the girls had a blast riding the train into Difficult Child. I think that was the highlight for them...lol. We actually got to Difficult Child at exactly 1 which was when we were supposed to arrive according to my tickets. OMG! There must have been 5,000 people in line with another thousand arriving after us. We were in those snake lines. We had been told that we were not allowed to bring in outside food or drink so we didnt bring any. Fools! It was sweltering and the girls were dying out there. They were absolutely miserable. By this time I could hardly walk. We did bring a stroller and I had the good sense to bring my walker so I had a place to sit down. My walker did also allow me to go up to the security people and ask about handicapped access after I had attempted to comply with the snake walking and just couldnt manage it. I tried but I would have died doing it. I finally just went up to one of them after the second row and asked them if there was some way of me just getting to the ticket area and waiting on my family...lol. I couldnt do all that walking. Then we still had to go through the ticketing and the security. Then it was more walking. At that point...they gave everyone water and vitamin water. LOTS OF IT!!! But....almost as soon as they got done giving everyone loads of this water...and we all were drinking it like there was no tomorrow, they announced that it was time for the egg roll and they herded us through another line and made us throw all our water away...open and closed...and the snacks they had just given us! That made the kids scream again!!!! It was so hot. People were so ticked off. Not just us. I heard several people say that they had been to other of these events and they werent like this. We eventually got in to where the stuff was going on and the girls got to see a concert with that Justin Beiber guy (I think thats his name) and they got to do the egg roll one time and they got pics with lots of cartoon characters. We never saw the President or the First Lady. We never saw any of those book readings or any of that stuff. By the time we actually got into the White House lawn it was already after 2:30 so we really didnt have a whole lot of time and lots of that time was taken up in getting water in us and walking to places. It was so incredibly hot! I had several of the rescue squad people coming over to me handing me water and asking if I was alright...lol. I really must not have looked well! At 3:45 they announced that it was time to leave and we were ushered out and the girls got their Egg signed by President and First Lady. Then we had to walk for ages and ages to find the Metro stop again. Let me tell you, people arent nice when giving directions in Difficult Child for that. All in all...I wouldnt be doing that again. I was mostly livid with most of it. I am told that the feds or someone listens in on phone calls made in the Difficult Child area. Well...they wont be happy with me then...lmao. I didnt threaten anyone exactly but I did say it was a good darned thing they didnt let me bring explosives in or I would have made a new metro stop! No more traveling for me until/unless I get a power scooter. I literally thought I was going to die in Difficult Child!
