As most of my friends and family already know, we took Kate to her first POTUS (President of the United States) “Meet & Greet” yesterday. The Obamas were in town, and without saying too much, we were invited to the event.
Unfortunately it took place during Kate’s afternoon naptime, so she was less than thrilled to be there. I’d decided to stay toward the back of the room in case I needed to make a quick exit, however, during his speech, President Obama stated that he particularly enjoys meeting the children of the U.S. Foreign Service, so I made my way to the front, with an increasingly unhappy Kate.
The Obamas were only able to “greet” the people in the front row, and by the time I was up front, they were making their way toward the other side of the room. I handed Kate a bottle and made my way past some people who were more than happy to push and shove a woman carrying a small child.
I have several pictures of him right next to us, but I’m still iffy about sharing pics of Kate on a public blog, so these (pics from the side and back) are all I’m going to post here. Hope to have some additional pics to share soon.
