One Macon family will get to meet the first family next week to be a part of a White House tradition.

The Emeroles will head to the White House Easter Egg Roll where President Obama and the First Lady will greet thousands of children and their families form across the country.

The family entered the contest after getting an email from an organization they belong to, and weeks later they were surprised to learn they were headed to D.C.

Son Obi Emerole told 13WMAZ, "I know one thing. It's a life time opportunity, and well, I'm excited. But at the same time, a little nervous."

The family leaves Friday. The Egg Roll happens Monday.
