Michelle And Sasha Obama Travel To Spain

First Lady Michelle Obama and daughter Sasha, 9, took some time off from presidential family duties for a getaway to Spain. Michelle, Sasha and a few family friends arrived on Wednesday (August 4) and toured the city center of Marbella.

President Barack Obama is at home, celebrating his birthday alone – he turned 49 on Wednesday (August 4). But he got a welcome surprise when Michelle and Sasha phoned him with birthday wishes from Spain. And it's reported that daughter Malia, 12, who is away at camp, used her allotted phone time to call and wish her dad a happy birthday.

 

Malia Obama Goes To Summer Camp

After you've been flown around the world in private jets, met heads of state and had private concerts with the likes of Paul McCartney and the Jonas Brothers, what's next?

For presidential daughter Malia Obama, it's summer camp!

Malia, 12, will be taking part in this classic American tradition for the first time this summer, and experts say the president and Michelle Obama have made a wise choice in letting their eldest daughter participate in this rite of passage. From Peg Smith, CEO of the American Camp Association:

We're proud, and very pleased for Malia. Education and learning has been something that the president has talked a great deal about, and we see camp as a great learning environment. We're sure she'll have a great experience.

But we all know that sometimes that initial separation can be harder on the parents than on the kids, as the president let on in a recent interview. "I may shed a tear," he admitted.
