Michelle Obama is going on vacation, but why isn't her husband Barack Obama going to Martha's Vineyard with the family? Will the President miss the whole summer trip with their daughters Sasha and Malia?
Reports are saying that the Obama family will be returning to Martha's Vineyard this summer for an extended vacation. The specific place the Obama's may vacation? A house in Farm Neck on Martha's Vineyard according to The Boston Globe. The New York Post reported that the Obama's vacation to Martha's Vineyard would not be a surprise since the Obama family has vacationed in the past at Blue Heron Farm in Chilmark.
The Obama's did not go to Blue Heron last year on vacation and the NYP reports that their favorite house may not be available anymore! The property was bought in 2011 by British architect Norman Foster for $21.9 million. Maybe he'll make a Presidential exception?
The Obama's reportedly like the Blue Heron property in Martha's Vineyard because it's secluded and has a golf course. President Obama may not be able to join his family on their extended vacation however. Reportedly the President will only be joining the Obama family on occasional weekends and perhaps 2 weeks in late August.
President Obama won't be without his family for that long though. Michelle and the girls are scheduled to accompany the President on his trip to Ireland in June for the G8 Summit. The Obama's were also just named Forbes 2013's most powerful couple!
According to Forbes, 67 percent of Americans love FLOTUS, making her even more popular than her husband! The President even knows this. During his acceptance speech, Obama raved about his wife, "I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you too as our nation's first lady." Next on the list were Bill and Melinda Gates. We'd say that's pretty good company!
Just in time for prom season, Time Magazine released this photo of President Obama at his high school prom in Hawaii! Super cute!
