(CNN) – The Obama girls still don't have a puppy, but they did receive another surprise when they arrived home from school Wednesday– a brand new swing set.
A spokeswoman for First Lady Michelle Obama says Malia and Sasha, ages 10 and 7, "squealed with delight" when they saw their surprise, playing on the swing set for almost an hour in the chilly weather.
The girls' parents arranged for the play set to be installed Wednesday at the White House grounds, within sight of the Oval Office, before Malia and Sasha arrived home from Sidwell Friends school.
Why is this news? It's as uninteresting as the "great dog hunt".
This is a very sweet story, but I really don't need to hear about every step of these babies lives. Can we just let them grow without it being in a fish bowl. I think it's pretty hard enough having to share your Dad with a nation. That's more than enough right there.
At least some people aren't feeling the impacts of the economy.
Whatever happened to leaving the Obama girls alone? Give them their privacy, you vultures!
Typical little ones – playing out in the chill...adorable!
We did the same thing for our kids when we moved into our new house in Clovis, CA, in 1985. Our daughter was 6 and our son was 4 at the time.
They enjoyed it until we moved to Danville, CA in 1989 – we sold it to a family around the corner from us before moving. In Danville we were in a HOA that wouldn't let us have one at home, but they had a bigger one to go to at the HOA park!
Too bad their father will be impeached soon and they will have to go back to Chicago.
Because of their parents loving guidance, it doesn't matter whether they grow up in Chicago or Washington DC, they are destined to be happy and confident young ladies.
You think Rush can come over? No! He might break the set into. Maybe instead of debating the President, maybe Rush could go to the GYM with the President and work out something beside his big mouth. Oh, I better take that back, Rush might not like that. So I will act like the other cowards who's afraid to stand up to Rush.
Children should always be allowed to be children and thank God these girls have parents that continue to allow them to enjoy the same things as all children. They too are Gods little precious angels.
They are great kids, who I'm sure by no choice of their own life as they knew it completely changed. I think it's great to award them with those type of pleasures. I believe that life in the white house for any president children has to feel like prison from time to time.
Why is this on the Ticker? Oh so the racists and uneducated Rushbots can blog about these children whose parents prior to being in the White House made well over $300,000 a year anyway.
But, some of the racists on this blog can't deal with a Black family living well.
Thats really cool. =)
