Happy 12th Birthday to Malia Obama!

The First Tween celebrated her 12th birthday here in Washington this past weekend. Malia Obama spent the day with her family at the Presidential retreat Camp David in Maryland and enjoyed a birthday barbeque along with family members of the armed services as a White House Fourth of July event. The 12-year old Ms. Obama must always share her birthday with America, but as the daughter of a sitting President, the day itself is perhaps more shadowed than in the past. But certainly the perks of having your dad as President more than make up for it - what with backstage tours of the Harry Potter movie set, box seats at the NBA Championships, and more.

The latest perk was a behind the scenes look at the latest Broadway musical to hit the Kennedy Center: Mary Poppins (the show runs July 1 to August 22). First Lady Michelle Obama and First Tweens Malia and Sasha Obama toured the set after the first show. The birthday girl got to bring friend along to the show and was serenaded by the cast with, of course, "Happy Birthday!"

This year, the First Tween's birthday celebrations have been much lower-key than in years past - Sasha Obama's 9th birthday was a simple pizza party at a local restaurant.
