The family of the Health Initiative’s Linda Ellis and her partner Lesley Brogan didn’t get to meet the president at the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll on April 9, but as one of many LGBT families there, they did have a blast in D.C.

Heading home from DC. Made some good memories and laughed a lot. Didn’t see the president, but luckily Lesley thought ahead during our visit to Madame Tussaud’s yesterday, so we still got a photo with them.
