First lady Michelle Obama — joined by her mother, Marian Robinson, daughters Malia,12, and Sasha,10, and niece and nephew Leslie and Avery Robinson — arrived in South Africa on Monday. The Obamas were welcomed with blankets and flowers as they landed in Pretoria en route to Johannesburg, South Africa.
The first lady and her brood will be in South Africa for one week. First daughters Sasha and Malia managed to steal some quality time with their dad on Father’s Day. The trio-Sasha, Malia, and President Obama- were photographed grabbing some sweet treats from Thomas Sweet ice creme parlour on June 19, 2011(see the pictures below).
