BETHESDA, Md. —

Michelle Obama marked the first day of spring with an early Easter celebration as she handed out holiday treats to military families and children.

The first lady stopped by the Fisher House at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., on Wednesday as families decorated Easter cards.

She asked the children if they were ready "to show me how to make some stuff."

Mrs. Obama, accompanied by first dog Bo, carried a basket full of cookies made by the White House pastry chefs in the shape of the Portuguese water dog.

She also brought tickets for the families to attend the White House Egg Roll on April 1.

The Fisher House program provides temporary housing for military families while their loved ones receive medical care.
