Obama girls enjoy ice cool Father's Day outing with dad

Monday June 22, 2009

When America's First Family headed out for a Father's Day treat they didn't forget their pet Bo. 

Barack Obama spent quality time with his daughters Malia and Sasha over the weekend, taking them for an ice cream. And they also picked up some 'puppy pops' frozen treats for their new Portuguese water dog, who has had the run of the White House since April.

The girls' mum Michelle, known for her strict discipline when it comes to health and fitness, had apparently stayed behind at home. 

The happy trio all had vanilla custard ice creams at The Dairy Godmother parlour in Alexandria a few miles from the executive mansion. And the US President, who has something of a sweet tooth, added hot fudge and toasted almonds to his order. 

As the Obamas left the store a round of applause broke out from customers and staff.
