The White House

I was once told that the neatest picture someone can get of themselves and the White House is a picture that has no gate bars in the back ground. On Tuesday night my congressman and his wife invited me to a picnic at the White House south lawn. Not only did I go into the White House after passing through very difficult security, I had the opportunity to take plenty pictures of the White House close up and meet President Obama. Our meeting was brief, but I got to shake his hand and snap a quick picture. There were many Washington politicians there along with their families. A live band played tunes while the guests had the pleasure to choosing picnic food from different parts of the country. In addition to meeting the President, my congressman walked me around the party and introduced me to other politicians. It was a very special and unique experience that I will remember for a very long time. Meeting the President and being on the White House grounds will definitely be a memorable moment from this summer.
