    Thank You Jesus, these are the photos I have been anxiously waiting to see. I am so glad the first family is back home. My stomach has been in knots since they left last Friday night. I can’t help myself. Worrying about them is what I do.

    Thank you Chipsticks for being our tour guide. You are amazing.

    Those shoes have to be CrewCuts. I believe the floral oxfords that Malia were wearing were by JCrew also.

    Beautiful pictures of the family. I dig the shoes too Mr. President. During the whole trip there have been wonderful pictures of our First Family. May the Lord give you strength to deal with these idiots who have been complaining about the decision to go into Libya. I don’t want to sound so mean and ugly, but the Democrats at least ought to had his back. Instead they were twist the knife. And I so disappointed in them.

    I see that the trees are in blossom in DC. I wonder what the view of the reflecting pool looks like today. Must be beautiful.

    Welcome home, Mr. President and our First Family!!! Thank God for their safety!!!! We are so happy to see them home. I pray that they can hug Bo, relax a little and deal with the mess both parties have constantly created while POTUS was away. However, not matter what, Mr. President you made us proud. We will stand with you. Thank you Almighty God for their safety. Amen

    I too am glad they are home and safe. It is a shame that they come home to nothing but criticism and doubt by so many. I am so happy that they had some time away in a more relaxed atmosphere. It must have been wonderful for the family to see how much other countries and their people respect our president.

    Is anyone having trouble connecting straight to this blog that you have to go through a page that asks you to swipe the screen well it says ” swipe me” because when Am on the laptop I go straight to the blog but when am using my iPad and I type in theobamadiary it takes me to a page that asks me to swipe the screen then a weird page comes on. Am getting worried so that’s why am wondering if anyone is experiencing the same issues using their ipads to log in here.

    Thanks M, because am getting so frustrated with trying to figure out how to use it and I don’t like it at all. I thought maybe it will go away in a few hours but I guess it’s not. Who made the changes chipsticks or apple. I will have to call them tomorrow to complain.

    This new format is annoying, I don’t like it, I don’t understand it and it’s so borng to navigate. With that am off to bed with a lot of of frustration.

    President Obama and First Lady Michelle

    Welcome Home, we missed you!. We were with you and your family during your trip to South America. Thanks to Chipsticks, our Super Wonderful President Obama supporter, we were kept updated during your trip to Brazil, Chile and El Salvador. Chipsticks sent us picture, after picture, after picture, starting with the departure from DC, all the way to your homecoming. Day after day, after day, and all through the day, Chipsticks had us laughing, dancing, crying and loving with you. The joy in Malia’s and Sasha’s faces, the happiness in the people that met with you—we saw them all, thanks to Chipsticks. Your meetings with the Heads of State, the dinners you attended, the places you visited, yes, we were with you, thanks to Chipsticks. Thank you, President Obama, for representing our country in the best possible light. Our world is broader and more meaningful, thanks to you. And a very special thank you to our Chipsticks for all this effort.

    Oh, DoNoHarm what a lovely post. I got tears just reading it. What a lovely note to share here with us. I really hope that you sent it to the President and the First Lady. It was just nice and refreshing and it also told a side of the story that showed them that we were there with them through the wonderful work of our beloved Chipsticks. Thanks so much!!!

      This message I posted at the WH contact site and also put in the US mail, with the CS’s and BWG’s site address. These two people are spending their waking hours and then some giving us info that we can’t find anywhere else, info that keeps on giving. CS and BWG are bringing us together to share ideas, i.e., brag blog, constant communication with the electeds in Congress and the media. It’s going to take all of us to keep our President Obama. Yes, We Can!

    I’m a bit depressed that they’re back home, if I’m honest with you. I never fear for their safety when they travel – never. I fear when they are out and about in THEIR OWN COUNTRY. Honestly, I love to see this happy family together, stepping on and off Air Force One. I love to ooh and aah over Mrs Obama’s clothes. They get mad love abroad and irrespective of what the h aters say there was no bad blood between the Queen and the First Lady when she placed her hand on her back – none !!! We Brits love the Obama’s (this Brit anyway) and that goes for people who aren’t black either. My boss is a 40 y o caucasian and even he says that the Obama’s have done more to repair America’s image abroad than any other President in his lifetime. He also thinks Michelle Obama is without a doubt the most intelligent and classy first lady to ever step over the threshold of the White House.

    I just pray (night and day) that God keeps this family safe. They are truly blessed but their enemies are doing everything to break them and must be driving themselves mad that every time they attempt to sabotage the Obama’s, they get stronger, more confident, more beautiful and more stronger as a family. They have given up an awful lot for political life and I hope and pray that the next generation learns from this huge sacrifice that they have made. I want to see more little girls keep their head in their books, graduate, find a husband and give back to society and I want the brothers to see how beautiful it is to have a strong beautiful woman beside them as they journey through life. Baby mama’s are so last century. We used to be kings and queens, the Obama’s have reignited that concept and given us the torch – let’s run wit it, run, run, run.

      blc, your comment is so beautiful.. thank you for expressing it here.. indeed- they come from kings and queens and are of the people. I believe this next generation coming of age will present us worldwide with some of the best leaders ever seen, and I believe President Obama has been and will be a positive influence on making that happen.

        Agree sherijr. President Obama was just the start of our world changing for the better. Can you believe all that has happened in just over two years? The closer we get to 2012 the better the world will be. We just have to work hard to re-elect our wonderful President to continue this change!
