Upon returning to the States, the First Lady brought Sasha and her cousins to the Maryland state capital building in Annapolis, MD to learn about state government. The trip was described as a sort of "First Family Summer School" and included a private tour of the building that is the oldest working state capitol in the country and a statue of Thurgood Marshall, the nation's first African-American Supreme Court Justice. Afterwards they visited the U.S. Naval Academy, which is a beautiful campus on the banks of the Severn River.
Last weekend, the President, First Lady, and Sasha Obama vacationed on the Gulf Coast of Florida. They stayed at the Bay Point Marriott in Panama City, FL, went swimming in the Gulf of Mexico at Alligator Point, ate a lot of Gulf seafood (they visited local favorites Lime's Bayside Bar and Grill and Firefly), played mini-golf at Pirate's Island and ended with a boat ride and dolphin siting. The younger Obama tween is apparently quite the ringer - she scored a hold-in-one on the first hole of the mini-golf course (see a video here).
Malia Obama re-joins her family for a last summer break on Martha's Vineyard (where they vacationed last summer as well) this week. More details to come!
