Beyoncé's Easter plans were even cooler than we thought. According to these photos, she's at the White House Easter Egg Roll right now, the First Family’s annual, open-to-the-public celebration which features an Easter Egg hunt, performances, and other activities.

The Easter Egg Roll Twitter account just retweeted this photo from a Bey fan Twitter:

Today marks the final White House Easter Egg Roll for the Obamas during Barack's two terms as president, and Michelle Obama is clearly pulling out all the stops to make it the best, Beyoncé-ist White House Easter Egg Roll in history.

The First Lady wore a green top and a zip-up black bomber. Here's what she said during her opening remarks for today's festivities.

Today is a little bit bittersweet for us, because this is the Obama administration’s last Easter Egg Roll," she said. "If we think about what we’ve accomplished over these past seven years it’s pretty incredible. When Barack and I first got here, one of the goals we had was to open up the White House to as many people from as many backgrounds as possible.

And she's not kidding: 35,000 people will party with the Obamas for the "Let's Celebrate"-themed event, which includes a fun run led by the First Lady — a first of its kind.

"I’m going to be running around the White House with a bunch of kids and any adults who feel like they can hang, you guys can run around with me, don’t feel shy," she said.

The First Lady even recruited her favorite boutique fitness studio, SoulCycle, to take part in today's event.

The President and First Lady also did what looks like an amazing reading of Where the Wild Things Are.

Musicians Chloe x Halle just shared this photo with Beyoncé. The Washington Post notes that the singers are reportedly signed to Bey's management company, Parkwood Entertainment.

Update: Beyoncé is wearing a Marco de Vincenzo long-sleeved laser cut mesh bustier dress with floral lace details. It's from the spring-summer 2016 collection and it retailed for $3,510 on Moda Operandi.
