What the Obama girls did this summer

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

The Obama daughters will have plenty to write about in their “What did you do this summer?” essay.

In Moscow, Mrs. Obama and the girls spent time at a National Folk Dance, on a tour of the Kremlin, and just 48 hours after their dad signed a deal with Russia to reduce nuclear weapons, 11-year old Malia Obama was spotted wearing not one, but two shirts with a peace sign.

This while they were in Italy, the second stop in their week-long trip. They visited Rome’s Pantheon, the Colosseum, and even stopped to make their own blackberry and banana gelato.

Later they dressed in black for the family’s meeting with Pope Benedict

“The Obama daughters are having an amazing time as daughters of this president,” said NBC News presidential historian Michael Beschloss. “They are meeting people they’re having experiences that are incredible.”

It’s a dream vacation for first daughters Malia and Sasha, already jetsetters and now drawing attention for being pint-sized fashionistas.

The tweens started their trip in matching trench coats and ballet flats designed by JCrew. It’s the Obama girls’ second trip overseas. They’ve already been sightseeing in Paris and London.

Could it mean we will see more of the Obama girls traveling this summer?

“Michelle for one has told her staff she wants to get the girls out of the White House more and she wants to travel with them so they can be together as a family and that the girls can take advantage of all that the parents are experiencing,” said

And this is a trip they will never forget.
