For the first time ever, First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a slumber party to remember with 50 Girl Scout members from all over the country.
FLOTUS came up with the idea through her new “Let’s Move Outside” campaign (in tandem with her highly successful “Let’s Move” campaign) to beat childhood obesity. During the slumber party, the First Lady engaged in knot tying and studying the stars. The Girl Scout members hailed from Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Oklahoma, and Washington, D.C, according to PEOPLE.
The girls were also treated to a special guest–President Barack Obama.
As usual, the president had jokes.
“What are you guys doing in my yard?” the president teasingly called out as he crossed the lawn to squeals from the girls.
Obama kept the children laughing by showing off his dance moves and telling stories around the “campfire,” which happened to be some helpful electric lanterns.
Michelle, an honorary national president of Girl Scouts USA, said she’s been wanting to host a slumber party at the White House for a while.
The president didn’t stay long, but got a huge hug from the girls when it was time to say goodbye.
“I have to go to work. I’m not allowed to have fun,” the president said.
And the event was one of historic proportions; turns out this is the first time a slumber party has been held on the White House lawn.
The evening ended with the girls setting up tents and sleeping under the stars.
