Day trippers: Michelle O goes to Monticello
First Lady Michelle Obama, First Daughters Malia and Sasha and First Mother-in-law Marian Robinson dropped in July 23 on Charlottesville's First Tourist Attraction, Monticello, and NBC29 snagged the story– with video.
The Obama women took in Luray Caverns in the Shenandoah Valley before swinging over to Monticello around 3pm and cutting in line for a private tour, much to the delight of visitors from Texas and Nebraska, according to NBC29. Others who had to wait were understanding once they realized who the glamorous visitors were, the television station reported.
The family headed to the Corner and dined on "some fantastic Virginian crab cakes, southern fried chicken, a couple of steaks, things like that," says owner Andy McClure. NBC29 captured an exclusive shot of the empty booth where the Obamas sat.
No word on what flavors the Obamas ordered at Arch's before heading off in armored SUVs back to the White House. No, wait, co-owner Sander Archer's Twitter feed tells all: "Michelle Obama got a 3.5 oz. vanilla with hot fudge and peanuts. Her girls got vanilla with oreos and whipped cream!!"
Oh, and Michelle wore yellow.
