My family got tickets last year. It was a lot of fun. One tip, if you do get chosen, select the first time slot. That was the one when the President and First Lady actually came out and greeted everyone and participated. It was still cool to be on the White House back lawn, but would have been nice to meet them. Definitely putting my name in the hat for tix again this year.
