Hooray for the First Family for valuing the importance of play! According to Yahoo! News on Mar. 4, 2009, "First daughters Malia and Sasha Obama got a big surprise after school: a brand new swing set. President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, arranged for it to be installed Wednesday while their daughters were at school. It is set up on the White House grounds within sight of the Oval Office." The wooden swing set is made by a South Dakota company. The girls were so excited they played on it for almost an hour in the chilly weather.
