The boxes are taped, the moving vans are filling up and the staffers have said their goodbyes. On Friday, the first family will move out of the house they’ve called home since 2009. But before they turn over the keys, matriarch Michelle Obama took one last walk through the White House — for the whole world to see.
On Wednesday, the first lady posted a short video of her stroll on Twitter. In the clip, she was accompanied by the beloved family dogs Bo and Sunny.
Wearing chic black pumps, black pants and a bell sleeve blouse, Obama walks slowly through the halls, no doubt taking in all the memories she’s made during her husband’s two terms.
The Obamas are headed to a 8,200-square-foot home in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
But before they settle into their new residence, the soon-to-be-former president is taking his wife and children on a relaxing vacation in warm Palm Springs, California — likely a nice respite from the demands of the last eight years.
