It was adventure time for the First Family’s dogs, Bo and Sunny, as they accompanied Michelle Obama when she visited Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday.
The foundation provides free temporary housing to the families of the military and veterans while the latter also receive medical care. It has served more than 200,000 families since 1991.
Reflecting her thoughts during the event, she said, “This is the best part of my day — with so many great families, you guys. But, more importantly, I get to shine a light on you all, our military families and our military kids.”
Mrs. Obama arrived at the Fisher House as families decorated Easter cards. While doing so, 20-month-old Lily Oppelt put stickers on the First Lady’s face.
“I love it” was her reaction.
It seems the First Lady pulled off the ‘sticker look’ quite well.
Mrs. Obama also brought a basket of cookies to distribute among the kids. The cookies, shaped like the White House and Bo and Sunny, were made by the White House pastry chefs.
She also invited all the children, along with their families, to attend the White House annual Easter Egg Roll next Monday.
Mrs. Obama also thanked the Fisher House for providing military families with 'a home away from home' during tough times.
