20. One of my nieces is tall like that.

Tall and very thin like that, and she is *NO* anorexic!
She's just so active she burns off the calories as fast as they get in her.

17. Oh no! At first glance I thought it was a Fonzie shirt.

Obama, it should be noted, rates an 8.3 on the Fonzie scale.

13. I love the way President Obama interacts with his girls

The father-daughter relationship is critical to the development of a woman and the identity she takes on in the future. How fortunate Malia and Sasha are to have such a loving father!

21. I mean, this is a middle family with middle class life experiences.

They're not out sailing personal sailboats from private docks; it's a middle class vacation (well, upper middle) where they all have to walk down to the beach from the bungalow. They're regular people; it looks like the extended family vacations my family took with uncles and aunts and cousins along the Redneck Riviera when I was a kid and there were fewer black spots on the white sand.

27. Are you serious?

 

Their villa costs $1200 per day. At 17 days, that's over 20K for just the accomodations.

What "regular" family can afford that kind of vacation??

23. Great Pix from paradise!

I'm a big fan of all things Hawaiian but never hear of Islandsnow.
Here's a pic of a cool shirt I just saw on their website-

26. she was with them earlier

. . . when they released four green sea turtles from Sea Life Park into Hanauma Bay. Taking advantage of Dad's day in charge, no doubt, and kicking back.

25. Quite a contrast to the Bush daughters, eh?

Somehow I doubt we'll be seeing pictures of these girls
rolling on the floor, drunk, at a sleazy bar.
